American As A Lever Action Rifle!

Everyone has their own favorite rifle but if you stop and ask most gun connoisseurs they would probably reply a lever action!  Lever action rifles were the main characters in many a western movie and to this day are still used by hunters everywhere.  I myself have many memories of my lever action.  One of my favorites involves a western Montana bull elk that came out of a lodgepole pine stand bugling in late October.  My lever action worked just fine!  Unfortunatley this hunter had a case of the nerves and the bull walked away unharmed.

The lever action is into its third century with little evidence that we have tired of them yet.”
