Have a question: Would a 1884 model Trapdoor Springfield be considered a lever action? If so I have 2 more. How about High Walls and Low Walls?

JM Marlens
Model 92-.22
Model 39A-.22
Model 94-.25-20Win
Model 1894CL-.25-20
Model 1894CB-.32 H&R Mag
Model 1894CB-.45 Colt
Model 1895/336-.45-70 Government

Rossi
2 Model 92's-.44 Win

Uberti Model 73-.44-40WCF

I like lever actions and pump actions, single shot or magazine feed!

Welcome, Warren. Indeed, if the rifle or carbine's action is opened or operated with a lever, the arc of which is on plane with the bore axis (like most of the common lever action repeaters), then we'll call it a lever action.

We could have quite a discussion on what may constitute the makin's of a lever action firearm... but for now we're just a bunch of folks who like the more-common, post-'73 lever action repeaters.

You and your armory certainly fit. Shall I post your name on the Mojave Lever Crew Membership Roll? Thanks for joining in!

My Spencer and my Sharps and Hankins Navy Carbine are both levers, so your trapdoor definitely is too.

I haven't watched many episodes of Wagon Train (but I am correcting this oversight), but one I saw just recently had Ernest Borgnine as the guest star.

During a gun battle with renegades, Ward Bond's character Seth Adams handles his Sharps carbine with aplomb, and reloads with skill. It was nice to see.

Seems pretty clandestine. I canít even find an official website, just some blog about a guy receiving his ticket order form.

One thing to note is that the image on their site seems to be wrong, I don't believe this one has checkering. If you notice in the description it says "None" for checkering and if you look at some of the listings on GunBroker, it is showed without it as well.

I have been eyeing one of these as well, but would prefer it with checkering like in the stock photo.

That doesn't look like a 20" barrel in the picture either. Looking at other models with 20" barrel, they seem correct, this one doesn't. it looks like the Trapper length (16") in the picture.

I did notice that but figured Winchester would have the correct image on their website. Guess we’ll have to wait and see. I emailed the GB seller for an ETA on shipping and their response was “as fast as possible” They use three day shipping, but if they don’t ship it for a week they may as well have just gone ground.

Usually I prefer plain stocks on lever actions. But, I wanted a Henry in .357 magnum and I liked the CCH steel frame so I ordered the rifle and the carbine even though they both had checkering. I'm sure the checkering will not bother me at all. Excuse the picture, it was taken from my computer screen to show my son what I had ordered.

Tracking in my 45-70 went from delivery by EOD today to “possible delayed” with no delivery date.

I need to hold one of these CCH guns, I really like em. Henry really has stepped up in the past few years. I'm not all that happy with my Long Ranger, yet. I just need to put some more factory ammo through it.

Really looking forward to a range report on your new gun

The picture is some kind of artist's rendition so the CCH looks weird. They will look much better in person when they come in.
I'm very happy with the fit and finish on my Big Boy brass frame in .45 Colt. The action is very smooth but I have not shot it yet because of my ammo situation in that caliber. I do have some factory .357 magnum ammo so I'm ready when the two new ones come in.

Oh, you're going to really like that Henry .45 Colt. I have one and it's my favorite rifle to shoot in the desert. Right along my Henry .357 Classic.

When you track it, does it show actually being picked up and some scans of it moving across the country?
If not, it's not been picked up and there's no idea how long until the seller actually even hands the package off to the shipper.
Was it coming from or passing through somewhere that's getting bad storms/weather right now?

I'm really looking forward to shooting the Henry Big Boy .45 Colt. I have a Winchester Model 94 Trails End in .45 Colt that's a pleasure to shoot. I've had it since the late 90s so I assume it is American made. I'm expecting the Henry to be just as much fun to shoot as the Winchester.
These are the only two lever actions I have until the two Henrys in .357 magnum come in.

I think the 357 is the perfect lever gun caliber. You can bump them up to a low end 30/30 or make mouse fart loads...its cheap and easy to load.

Your going to love em.

I'm really anxious for the rifle and carbine in .357 magnum to arrive. They should be here soon because I ordered them weeks ago. There's no outdoor range near me so I'll have to go to my local indoor which has a 25 yard maximum. For shooting a lever action standing up that should be fine.

I need to order another Taylors/Uberti Smoke Wagon revolver in .357 magnum. I like to pair up a cowboy revolver with each lever action.

I need to order another Taylors/Uberti Smoke Wagon revolver in .357 magnum. I like to pair up a cowboy revolver with each lever action.
Got to love the Smoke Wagon. Those Taylor's n Company gunsmith do a great job tuning them .... mine has a perfect trigger.

Pennstater has a couple Italian SSAs that are beautiful and shoot great

If not, it's not been picked up and there's no idea how long until the seller actually even hands the package off to the shipper.
Was it coming from or passing through somewhere that's getting bad storms/weather right now?
It had moved across the country and the last stop was Bloomington, which had me very nervous.

This morning it reappeared in walnut with no delivery date and an hour later it was on a truck in city of industry. I got delivery confirmation from the FFL today. Crisis averted, lol!

Mark, my Taylor's indeed has the tuned trigger work and shoots like a dream.
Still fiddling with the Pietta, but, it's getting close. Real close.

The Taylor's in the back?



I've got the same tile in my house. It's just not that clean

Yes, Taylor's in the back. I couldn't ask for a better shooting S/A in .45 Colt.
Clean tiles: It's my wifes hobby. Everything! All the time.

It's easy to ring 12" steel at 100 yards, standing, offhand with a .357 lever carbine. Perhaps not every shot, but 75%... (6 of 8 rounds - 18.5" carbine [might take 9 but I load 8]... and I'm not the greatest rifle shot.

Email or text away my friend. I might get in 18 holes tomorrow, or as many as I can...
