My dad  was in the navy during WW-II after the end of the war his ship would go from island to island in the south pacific, the ones we bypassed to tell the Japanese that the war was over.  He was in the landing party and said that they were issued lever action rifles from the ships armory and they used standard military ammo.  When he told me that the only rifle I could think of was the 1895 and was surprised to hear they had them onboard the ship.
After the first shot the rest are just noise.

This is a great article comparing the original Winchesters vs the newer reproductions by Miroku for Browning as well as Winchester.

Thanks HawkCreek!...A very nice read.

Hoping to kill a bear with my 405 this weekend.
