General | Latest Info

In recent decades, Lever Action Rifles have appeared to be on the ropes. We lost some great designs, including Savage 99 and Winchester 88, and sales of traditional Lever guns were slipping. In the early 2000s, Winchesters ' best-selling 1894 saw its first break in production. More recently, Marlin was out of production for several years. But, baby, look at Lever actions now. Marlin is back and selling new variations of their 94 336, and 95 Lever actions as fast as they can make them. Winchester is also back, and faithful reintroductions of their classic Lever gun consistently sell out. Although production runs are huge, Browning's sleek, fast BLR offers modern alternatives. Mossberg reports steady sales of their 464. 30-30. Henry, very much Lever-Action company, is doing well. And there are other alternatives, including Big Horn Armorys new Model 89 and some excellent off-shore reproductions of classic designs. Right now, Lever Action is once again hot. And in my opinion, it deserves to be.

Savage 99

Arthur Savage was an inventor and man of the world, creating things from railroads and streetcar lines to naval torpedoes. In midst of it all was born his design for rotary magazine Lever Action Rifle, and the rest is history. Savage saw shortcomings of contemporary Lever actions and Set about to improve the platform. Where traditional Lever actions were limited in their use of spitzer-tip centerfire rounds in tubular magazine due to dangers of accidental detonation, Savage 99s rotary internal design solves that problem and allows use of more accurate bullets. In addition to building a better mousetrap in terms of magazine style when compared to Winchester and Marlin, Savage also does away with external hammer in exchange for his patented hammerless, striker-fire Action. This, in turn, allows use of a much heavier bolt, which gives 99 ability to safely handle higher pressure smokeless cartridges than comparable Lever actions of time. If those improvements were not enough, Savage also incorporated angled side-eject that was a more friendly alternative to top ejecting lever actions, especially as use of scopes was embraced by hunters. Following proof of concept with short Marlin production, Savage opened doors on his own factory in Utica, New York and commenced building Model 1899. Though Arthur Savage himself moved on from his firearms factory to pursue a a of other ventures, from orange growing to radial tire patenting, Model 99 would remain by far his greatest testament with over a million rifles produced in nearly century time.

UNLIMITED VERSATILITY

PENNSYLVANIA Deer HUNTING IS generally a short-range activity. Seventy-five yards IS likely average shot for MOST deer hunters, with quite a few being closer. Long shots are not the norm in GOOD deer habitat, where cover IS thick. PENNSYLVANIA Deer hunters have used lever-Action rifles or slide-Action rifles for deer for years.

The partnership between Marlin Firearm Co. And Hornady Manufacturing has enabled lever-Action RIFLE to make long-range shots in big games. They have changed VERY definition of lever-Action RIFLE; lever-Action rifles are NO longer just short-range rifles. Marlin last year introduced its new XLR RIFLE series to take advantage of Hornady's new spire-point, flex-tip RIFLE ammunition.

Winchester Model 94

The Winchester Model 1894 is certainly one of the most iconic American firearms ever. With more than 7 500 000 rifles produce, it has earned its place in history. It was the first to be chamber for smokeless powder cartridge,. 30-30 Winchester, in 1895. It was and still is a light and handy rifle. While it is available in other cartridges today, the. 30-30 is classic deer medicine and makes a great choice for deep woods hunters of the East. Modern variations can be topped with scope if you so choose, but even when using iron sights, rifles and cartridge are plenty of guns for average woods shot often inside of 75 yards. Rifle is available in both rifle and carbine lengths, ie, think longer and shorter barrel choices, respectively. I personally prefer longer barrel, as it increases the sighting radius when shooting iron sights. Many of the new 1894s are what are know as angled eject, meaning that spent cartridge casing is thrown out of the receiver at angle, so the scope can be mounted on the center of bore, nice and low. Early Winchester 94s were top eject, throwing empty cases straight upward and making scope mounting impractical.
