Ok, so here's the rifle I remember, I can't remember the model or specific designation.

There's a Winchester rifle that was one of the first repeaters. Seven shot capacity, IIRC, loaded through the stock, and to load each shot you'd push the stock down, which would use a lever action to eject the old cart and load a new one in. That is, there's no actual lever you pull, it's done by actually pushing the stock down and back up, a skilled shooter could roll it off his shoulder.

centerfire or rimfire? Bore size?

It's centerfire to the best of my knowledge. I don't know the bore size.

Maybe a model 1873?

Are you speaking of the Spencer maybe? That and the 1860 Henry were the first metalic cart repeating rifles as I recall.

It's not an 1873. I'm starting to doubt that it was a Winchester, that might've just been a tag I put on it arbitrarily.

I thought it might have been a Spencer but I saw that the Spencer has an exposed lever. The weapon I am remembering doesn't have an exposed lever, the action was contained within the stock.
