I have two Winchester Model 94 30/30 carbines. Both are old and owned a long time.

I also have a Henry Carbine lever action in .357 Magnum/.38 Special. I bought it ~5 years ago from a local guy. He included some nice reloaded ammo. They were nice as I tested them. :)

I'd like to see your lever guns. I am looking to add to my collection. Thanks

I've got 2, the first is a Marlin 336CS 30-30win that my wife bought me for our first Christmas together in 1987.

The second is a Mossberg Palomino 22 from sometime in the early 60s. It was found in a storage unit clean out. A little rusted but shoots great.

This one rode in a saddle scabbard from MO to MT at the turn of the last century. The owner wanted to be
a cowboy.
It may have been involved in the squabbles between the cattlemen and the sheep-men that occurred
while he was in that part of the country.
He showed up back in MO in the middle of the night and would never talk about any of his experiences out west.
.
The front sight bead is about plumb wore off from riding in that scabbard all those miles. It sat in a closet for more than
60 years and was filthy when my wife's Grandfather showed it to me.. I wouldn't turn loose of it until I had cleaned it up.
He said the gun deserved to be with someone who appreciated it and gave it to me 50 years ago. It still shoots plumb center.

Fine looking older lever guns! All the ones here are pretty modern, nothing old.

Here is a Winchester Model 1895, built about 1902, chambered for the 405 WCF.
That's a dandy! Teddy Roosevelt's favorite lion tamer, I believe.
I've owned a few over the last couple years. Had a couple Savage 99s, a Marlin 336 and 39a, Winchester 92 and 94s. And my latest purchase is a Rossi 92. Gotta take a few pics of whats in the safe when I get the time. Like the revolver, lever action rifles are a uniquely American creation. Everyone should have at least one of each!

I am a Marlin guy and don't even own a Winchester rifle. I guess the oldest I have is a Marlin 1946 39a and second place would be a 1950 Marlin 336 in 35 Remington. Here is the 1950 Waffle top 35 Remington.

It even has the factory paper in it.

I've never owned a Marlin but looking around for one. We have an active market around here.

The oldest lever gun rifle I have is a 1946 Marlin "waffletop" 336 carbine.

But if were talking lever guns in general, then this Winchester 1887 10 ga. metal buttplate "shoulder buster" is my oldest.
