"tactical lever guns" What the actual F#^k. side saddles, pic rail foreends, flash suppressors. You name it and these fuggin mongoloids have it stuck, taped, and screwed onto a lever gun. they look like something stick would throw in a puddle with a half dead salmon. i just dont understand it.

Apparently they sell and make the company money? I could say the same with threaded short rifle barrels. I seem to recall folks chasing velocity and now they are cutting barrels.

Lot of people have herd mentality no accounting for them. A bucket list gun for me has allways been a m94 AE rifle in 7'30 waters, finally picked one up, it had a huge aperatured XS peep on it and was replaced with a m8 leupold 4 x. Looks good handles nice , it's a sight set up to handle the cartridges potential...mb

Maybe for folks in ‘ban’ states? A lever is a pretty good self defense firearm, so tarting one up optics, ammo carriers, and a light may make sense to some. I think they are hideous, but then again I think the same of most of the new Henry lineup. I also don’t live in a ban state.

Gitem_12: I burst out laughing at your posting - thank you for that.
I have traveled all over Alaska on 4 Hunting trips and 7 fishing trips and have NEVER seen anyone (Alaskan or non-resident!) lay or throw one of their firearms into a creek, river, stream, lake or ocean!
NEVER!
The idiotic entity now known as small twig is laughable in his self - but you made me laugh out loud with your righteous and well earned dig of him.
Keep up the good work.
Come to think of it, along with Alaska, I have never seen an armed adult human being in Canada or ANY of the western states (and a couple of southern states!) where I have Hunted intentionally place their firearm IN the water!
Dipschidt, does not begin to adequately describe small twig.
Thanks again for the hoots.

I am converting to the darkside as we speak. There are some facts one has to face. The lever action is still a great design and a relevant repeater.


As one that has busted stocks on Bolt actions and Leverguns because I’m hard on them and outdoors most of the time I’m switching to the more durable stock and forend. The wooden stock is a levergun weakness !

A word on the forend, I don’t know why but often I’ve ended up with busted rear band screws from recoil.

I would never own a bolt action without a synthetic stock

honestly, I could see the benefit of a mounted light. that would likely make a dandy camp gun. but pistol grips, and telescoping stocks?

Hey I reasoned it out, they are actually formidable rifles, why not make it more so.

Mine are all stainless so I would just leave the blued junk with wood

Life is too short for cleaning and oiling rifles or repairing wood.

I am proud to own, shoot, hunt and enjoy several lever action rifles of all vintages
Although none of my levers are tricked out tactically
Everyone is entitled to their opinions -
and I as a rule insist on paying the full 2 cents their opinions are worth 🦊

I do not get paid for giving manners lessons but will do so for free on rare exceptions
Call my wife fat and my kids slow witted if you will, but derogatory comments about what I am shooting at the range, or hunting afield will be given a complimentary lesson in manners - in full

Mall ninjas discover leverguns...
Their rifle, they can do what they like. The rails, some call 'em cheese graters, might be handy in camp.
Wonder if the telescoping stocks get longer when something pretty strolls by?
Manners are important though. Just look, say " Uh huh" and keep walkin'. Save the snickers, giggles and head shakes for later. Kinda like what sidelock snobs should do with inliners...

There must be some market demand for that configuration. It looks pretty awful to me, but all of my Marlins are REAL Marlins, blued CM and walnut.

Here's another thread I ran across on one of Marlin's aberrations. I can't believe Marlin had the nerve to thread this gun for a suppressor. It just goes against lever-gun tradition:

There's a guy on, I think, mountain men who has a lever gun with rail, forward mounted scope, rear peep, suppressor, bipod in 460 S&W.
Made by big horn armory.
Oh yeah,, he has dredlocks too.

Suppressor and sub sonic 45-70 rounds work fantastic for pigs in Texas. The suppressor also helps soak up recoil so you're back on target quicker and the hogs don't spook as quick. Pretty simple purely functional attachment for anyone who actually uses their lever guns for hunting. As to the rest of the mall ninja dressup, to each their own. Some folks feel the same way about stainless steel. It's not what their grandpa had, so poo on it. Reality is that it's far more functional for someone actually using the gun on a regular basis. Simple facts.

I don’t want one myself, but I see no sin in outfitting a levergun with the means to mount a light, can, or sighting options. Might not be traditional, but functional doesn’t have to mean butt-ugly, though it often ends up that way.

I was recently served by a bartender who overheard my buddy and I talking guns. The kid (20-30 years old) was an official member of the Man Bun Club, carefully trimmed beard, skinny jeans and all. Surprised us when he started gushing about the different guns he bought recently, how well they shoot, and what's next on his agenda, and what his shooting buddies are using. Not surprisingly his guns are all tricked out tacticool this and badass that - stuff that I wouldn't be caught dead with. But, by golly there he was either a Millennial or awful close to it and excited about guns and shooting which gives me a glimmer of hope for the future.

And yes he respectfully listened while we told him about our recent acquisitions, asked intelligent questions, and admitted that there are some "old" guns that intrigue him but that he needs to learn more before spending money. All in all that one encounter was yet another example of not judging a book by its cover.

I could see the other folks at the bar becoming agitated by our conversation and lack of attention from the bartender. Screw 'em. (But our guy did comp them some drinks as an apology for neglecting them, another notch in my estimation.)

My gun club suffers from the "Ninja-warrior wanna-be" crowd. AR 15 style rifles with every attachment possible. Blasting away at 25 yards, spraying brass all over the range where it will remain as it seems that if you own one of these you can't pick up brass.

I wouldn’t own one unless it had see through mounts. eek

I have a couple rifles with expensive synthetic stocks. Certainly ugly. sick
I offered a choice, a beautiful walnut stocked early Model 7 in 223 or a late model 700 with their synthetic stock to my youngest. He grabbed the synthetic 700.

Civilization has been on its last legs starting when synthetic stocks came out.


I prefer classic.

Yeah, if it gets the younger generation into levers I’m all for it.

Why wouldn’t a pic rail be useful on a handy lever in the timber?

How are the younger generations going to enjoy lever actions when the boomers hoard them?

The equivalent of boomers modifying surplus firearms….

/\ I will second that.

I am happy these rifles are attracting some of the younger crowd into the shooting community.

Most older guys like me won't buy one...and that will help keep the price reasonable for those youngsters!
