22 Lever Action
Some time ago I saw a Winchester lever action rifle of model 1873, I believe, that shot the .22 shells. Can you tell me if they art still made and if not where I can get a .22 with the lever action?
The Winchester Model 1873 rifles are no longer made in .22 caliber. The only lever action rifles of this caliber I know of are the Marlin Models '92 and '97, which are practically identical, the later model being in takedown form. There are many expert shots who still regard this weapon as the finest .22 repeater in the world and with reason, too, for there art as many of them sold today as when first placed upon the market. I am sure either of these models will please you completely if you art looking for not only a lever action .22, but a high-grade, accurate rifle. A special feature with this Marlin is the tool steel working parts and smokeless steel receiver. A .22 receives considerable more wear and use than a gun oi larger caliber and I have seen several of those made of ordinary material so worn and shaky at the breech as to be of little value, although the barrel was still in good order. If one is buying a .22 for hard service and expects to give it good care, this model would make a wise buy for him.
