Rossi makes a sweet little lever action carbine in 45 Colt. I have no logic behind that recomendation. I got to shoot one recently and it was a hoot.

I've got the Rossi Puma 18inch ported .454 / 45 lever.  Love it!

I saw one of those in Stainless Steel with a black, (Ebony?), stock and it looked good!  Bill T.

Yep.  I changed the sights and removed the safety (put the rear sight there), but the recoil pad is standard (and needed!)

30/30 will always be around, especially in the back country towns, we'll "assume" one has to run to if the SHTF.

Love the 45Colt round, and in a lever action is very good. But 30/30 ammo is actually cheaper, than others listed.

Thanks billt, glad to see your not a "lever" gun fan.... ::)



Only pic I had of my Model 94, 30/30 Winchester A.E. (pre-japanese), and 1891 Mauser. NO TOES! ::)

I got a .44 magnum Trapper model so I would have ammo compatability with my Contender pistol. If I didn't want a pistol caliber I would get a 30/30 instead. They come in a trapper model too but I would stick with the 20" barrel for rifle calibers.

Got to agree with whats been said about 30-30. Good all round cartridge and available EVERYWHERE. I have Marlin and Winchester. Marlin is my choice when I'm in the woods.

in lever action rifles I have 3 .22rf (2 Marlin 39 and a Winchester 9422)
A 1866 Uberti in .38 Special
a 1872 Uberti in .357 mag
a Winchester 94 Buffalo Bill Commemorative in 30-30
and a Marlin 1895CB in 45-70.
I used to have a Rossi 92 in .357 but sold it to a friend in a moment of weakness. I figure I'll be able to find ammo for at least some of them in a SHTF scenario  ;D ;D

sorry but no pictures(yet)
