    WTB lever gun

    30 30, prefer Marlin
    No big lever loop or laminate . Would like pre Remington
    Particularly like a walnut stocked one if I can find one
    would prefer blued but may look at stainless
    Don't mind a little beat up so long as it shoots straight enough.

    Cheers

    444 was just having that discussion yesterday with my gun smith, he mentioned that the cost of ammo and shortage needed to be taken into consideration?
    Lovely round though

    jakewire a Marlin 444 is worth waiting for, its my pick as the most useful out of 30-30 444 or 45-70. Ammo has never been a problem I reload with Hornady 265 gr fp at 2275 fps sighted at 160yds it will group 1.5" at that range. I have a Marlin 30-30 and 45-70 also.

    jakewire and Wildman like this.
    Velocity is thrilling,but diameter does the real killing.
