Ok so I've been wanting a lever action rifle for a long time and my only dilemma is what caliber I should get it in. I've leaned towards .30-30 for availability but I also own a .357 mag revolver and currently reload for it. I really like the old cowboy idea of a matched pistol and carbine...
In a perfect world I would have bought a Marlin 1894 CSBL back in the day when they came out.
BUT... I didn't and I am currently in the market for a .357 lever action
I would like to get one with he following features but seems like that is unlikely
16 inch barrel
