Oh yeah now we’re talking. What calibers you running bango?

Left to right, a remlin .357, winchester .308, winchester .308, marlin .30-30, remlin .444

Did you put the new stock on the 88?  The one I got from my dad was cracked in the ususal spot.  I bought a laminate from Boyds; it was quite a chore to fit.  Sand, measure, repeat.

Yeah its a boyds pepper laminate.  Back when the hancock land by my house was open to motorized vehicles i was running the logging roads on my quad looking for lion tracks in the snow.  Forgot to put the rubber straps on, hit a bump and the rifle went flying off the front of my quad and i ran over it and busted the stock.  :bash:

I may regret starting this thread.  I’m itching to go spend some more money on lever guns.

Just found out henry is making .45-70, .357,  44 mag, .45lc, .410 with synthetic stocks, threaded barrel, and underside picatinny rail.  And i kinda want the .44.  It has a 20 twist, way faster than marlins .44s, so it should shoot the heavy hard cast rounds a lot better.  Do i really need it or have a use for it?  No.  But i still kinda want one.

Winchester 71 348 w.c.f.

Nice rifle.  I'd love to get one of those some day.  My 356Win can do most of what the 348 can, but I still really want one of those Winchester 71s.....

Now don’t let the anti-gunners get a look at those scary black lever guns. Pretty soon they’ll be wanting to ban “tactical” large loops and “battle style” peep sites.

Bango have you had problems with 1:38 twist marlins and 300 grain bullets stability?  Just curious as I may soon pick up an 1894 cowboy in 44 mag. Will probably stick with the 240’s but might want the option to throw the 300’s someday.

No personal experience, just stuff ive read.
