Default Lever action rifle from parts?

So I'm throwing out this question purely out of curiosity....

Has anyone ever assembled a lever action rifle from parts? I've been doing some research into firearms that people build and I was curious as to whether or not lever action rifles were as technically challenging as revolvers are.

Furthermore has there ever been such a thing as an 80% or below lever action rifle receiver?

I saw a article where a guy made one from scratch. He was quite the garage machinist, came out beautiful.

I know all the parts can be had online. http://homesteadparts.com/shopcart/commerce.cgi

What do you think an 80% receiver would cost?

Depends on the time it takes to make. John browning loved square corners in pockets. Will need to be edm'd, and that's not very cheap. Prob in the 250-350 range all said and done. Don't quote me on that price! Maybe less maybe more.
