    Remember ...a 30-30 is about the same power as a 7.62x39!

    Any bets that they sell like hot cakes?

    At a cost of about $500, the walnut and steel version looks like a winner

    Brian,

    I think its designed for that Mall Ninja Security guy from "Shrine of the Mall Ninja" you shared with us awhile back. I think his name was "Gecko". I'm certain he has one in his security cart. LOL

    Isn't there some sort of regulation prohibiting the posting of obscene material where children might see it?

    The ONLY thing useful on that lever action to me is the threaded barrel.

    I'm in the process of filing the federal paperwork for a .30 cal suppressor. I'm tempted to thread one of my 30-30s for it. Maxim used to sell suppressors for 30-30 lever guns 100 years ago.

    But the CAR stock madness.... When will it end? There are even CAR stocks for NEF single shots.

    That's a disgrace to every lever action 30-30 that's ever been taken into the deer woods.

    Ram Line made, and maybe still makes, black synthetic stocks for Winchester 94s. They were great for wet Pacific Northwest weather. The stocks were otherwise the same as wood stocks. I think they made them for Marlins at one time too. Was hoping they'd make a set to fit the Marlin 1895.

    I suppose the new Mossberg might appeal to those who cannot get a semi-auto tactical rifle in their state or locality. I guess I'm a bit of a traditionalist when it comes to lever guns.

    I always kmew I was different. I thought it looks kind of neat. I don't think my Henry or Winchesters would object to sharing the gun safe with it or maybe I would just put it under the bed, doesn't look like you could hurt it. Besides 00 ruins the plaster and woodwork in the house where 30 cal only puts small hole after it goes through target, that can be repaired easily.

    It is a whole different generation men. I work part time in a local gun store/range. That robocop lever action has been asked for at least 50 times. All this "tactical" crap has a huge following. If I had a wall of mint condition "F" grade and custom shop winchesters, Rem Wingmasters, every rifle Roy Weatherby ever built, as well as my cases full of Pythons, Gold cups, etc, we would never sell much. Fill the cases with glocks, plastic springfields, Plastic Smith and Wesssons, junk AK look alikes or any other ridiculously priced stamped steet metal 3rd world army rifles, anything "tactical" and the credit card scanners run non stop. These kids shot LOTS of rounds, they just really don't bother with aiming. Most are happy with hitting a full sized silhouette at 25 yards with a rifle. For pistols they shoot at 3 or 5 yards on a target where the black is 7 inches. They think noise equals shooting. I slip back into the range and shoot 3 inch groups at 25 yards with a handgun and quarter sized groups offhand with a smallbore rifle, not even good enough to make it in novice classes of competition. I try to broaden their view a little and show them it can be done. They respond that my shooting style looks boring and they want to have fun. I never knew it was fun to miss. So much for trying to make them into marksmen. I think all the years of rapid fire video games has them trigger happy. We give a discount to military and reservists, so they show me their ID's before they use the range. Most of the military guys are not much better. (there are exceptions, we have some older military men that are fine shots, and a few college pistol team shooters who are great also) There is something that they commonly do called a "MAG DUMP". They load every mag they own and shoot the gun as fast as they can until the ammo is gone. If the firearm does not malfunction, they feel like they accomplished something. Every box of ammo has $1.30 to $2.90 profit in it, so blast away boys, the boss has bills to pay.

    If we had 50 of those ugly lever guns, I would have 40 of them sold by now.
