My wishlist for lever guns is one in .327, .357, & 30-30.

I always liked lever guns in the old school loads. I have 2 Winchesters, One is a model 94 in 38-55 and the other is a 94/22 Classic (made only 3 years) and it shoots .22 shorts, longs and long rifle. Also have a Navy Arms brass frame Henry in 44-40. I think my wish list would be a model 94 Trapper in .45 Colt and a model 92 short rifle in .32-20 or 38-40 and I would want them both to be Winchesters....I'll have to keep hitting the auctions...

I have a Winchester 94SE pre safety Saddle Ring Carbine Trapper in .44. It will digest everything I feed it including semi-wadcutters slicker then snot. I recently purchased a made in Connecticut Marlin 1894 in .44 and I'm now considering selling the Winchester. Why?, because the Marlin is soooooooooo much smoother, and the guts don't fall out the bottom when I work the action. Also, the Marlin is much more accurate with lead bullets with the Ballard rifling. Just my 2 cents.

I just picked up a Winchester 94 in 30-30. Built in 1979. Must have been a safe queen as there isn't a mark on it, looks as new. I've been looking for a nice one for a long time. I sold my early model when the kids were young. It shoot real nice.

1) .327 Fed Mag

2) Marlin's planned re-issue of the .357 (they re-did the tooling, new .44's are rolling out, but no one has really confirmed new .357's)

3) I don't know that it can be done, but a lever in semi-auto cartridges (if any can be loaded to take advantage of the longer barrel--so 9mm, 45 acp)

4) Re-issues of some of the recent classics chambered in rifle rounds, like .243

I like the idea of all of them, but I am an ready buyer for the first two.

something new and all Ruger

I have thought about this for awhile and come to the following conclusion. I'm no engineer , so I don't really know if this is really possible.
Resurrect the old Ruger model 96 in 327 Federal in two barrel lengths a 16.125" and a 20.0". The smaller barrel in a compact size stock, the longer in a full rifle. I would pick the 327 because it's a straight walled pistol case and can be reloaded with carbide resizing dies. The recoil from a 327 rifle should be almost non-existant, but still have decent lethality at 125 yds.
I think this would be a 21st century 32-20, an outdoors mans rifle, but not a big game rifle, small to medium game at relatively close range.The ease of reloading makes it an enthusiasts cartridge, but economy of scale could make the 327 viable once it became more popular.
I picked the 96 model because it's a more modern design, magazine fed( could use pointed bullets), could be hammerless, the savage model 99 was quite the modern design many decades ago.
I could envision a single 7, or 4" sp101 to accompany a rifle like this, maybe even sold as a set.

I still want an affordable stainless Marlin in 357. The Rossi 92 is great though.

I have an older Rossi in.357/38spl, It's an Interarms,Amadio Rossi, made in Brazil, Alexandria VA importer. I was just shooting it. I like it a lot, it shoots great and hits my steel target very hard. It's a hoot, love it !

I have replaced the wood , so it looks great too.

I'd like to have a Marlin 1894 in 44 mag, it's on the list.

I know this isn't the Winchester style but I've always wanted a Savage 99 in either 308 or 243.

Honestly I'd like to have a 45-70 and a 30-30 in either Henry or marlin. That's my wish list anyways.

For Ruger to make a take-down .454 Casull to match their Redhawk line of revolvers. Perfect long gun to compliment the Alaskan and for those that travel to Alaska and only want to carry one caliber for bear protection... Take-down for travel and packing.

The only one I would even think of adding would be a JM Marlin 45-70, I am set on the rest.

Just finished my lever-action bucket list....

My first: Cimmaron (Uberti made) '66 Yellowboy in .45LC
My second: Cimmaron (Uberti made) '73 Short Rifle in .357
My third: Winchester 1887 shotgun (Coyote Cap special) in 12 gauge
My fourth: Winchester (Miroku made) Deluxe 44-40 with pistol grip stock
My fifth: Winchester (Miroku made) Deluxe 44-40 with straight grip stock

My fifth and last rifle... has the greatest wood on it that is in my safes. Grade IV, at least... maybe better. Serial Number is 00022. Bought if off of Gunbroker and got lucky.

In leverguns... these are all that I wanted.... and they all shoot good...

NOTE: To prevent redundancy... pictures have been moved to the "Rifle" section, lever-action picture thread....
