It would look better if the rail stopped when the receiver did, or just a little bit after.

I guess it appeals to people who want a fat yet fast bullet like a .44 Magnum or .45-70 Gov't, but then also want a weather resistant and slightly lighter gun which easily accepts various useful optics such as red dots.
You can of course get something similar as an AR15, but you're looking at less common and more expensive ammunition and also casings for handloading, and in some jurisdictions they don't let you hunt with guns like that (or worse, they don't even let you own it period).

>>51642247
Modified lever actions have existed since the 1890s.
>>51642257
No matter how much you seethe White Lights are good if you plan on shooting in less than daylight, and Red dots are fine/better for some than irons or magnified optics.
>>51642452
Yes and no.
I want a heavy, large projectile, lead bullet that is under 1000 fps or give or take, and a suppressor. The best, most economical option to do that is .45/70 or 44 Magnum / 45 Colt (depending on what you are setup to reload for, none are cheap, but all actually do have factory ammo available). .45 caliber suppressors are much more common and lighter than .50 cal ones as well.

Right now I'm thinking about building a .510 whisper bolt gun off an action I have, but thats just planning.
>>
5.56 is only good for wild coomers. not enough torque for reliable pig killing, and I don't think you want to get close enough for it to work well, cause if you see 1 piggy there's more somewhere very near...
>>
>>51642247
I just want a threaded henry rifle thats not plastic
>>
>>51642247
I don't know but it makes sense. All the big levergun rounds have a short range that a red dot will do you fine and nobody is complaining about easy to use scope mounting What gets me is the stainless models have this ugly gray laminate. Why not a normal shade of wood? Why did they put gray on silver?
>>
>>51642439
that's literally just an 1895 with a scope. what makes this "tactical," exactly?
>>
>>51642247
the Dark 1894 is unironically cool though.
>>
>>51642490
Varmint and up to deer. The .300 blackout however can do anything a .30-30 can, and is (somewhat) available. The reason tactical lever actions are kinda a thing right now is the fact the cartridges they are in are typically subsonic.
>>
>>51642490
Deer. No joke. Use the correct ammo and it’s perfectly fine. Most states it’s legal and acceptable. Look at the ballistics for a 20”. It’s basically made for hunting m’dude.
All copper hollow-points. Barely sheds any weight and has great velocity.
>>
>>51642708
You can just buy the wooden furniture, the regular big boy furniture fits the model x. Or you you can pay the relatively small fee to get it threaded. Only one other person here has said that they are awesome to suppress as well.

If I owned a cheap crappy Henry or Chiappa lever action I'd be tempted to tacticool it because the idea of a tacticool lever action seems cool to me. But the Deluxe Winchester model with high end wood grain stock deserves better than that. And at 24 inches length I like the iron sights with it's massive sight radius. So that being said, what is the most reliable cheap lever action on the market? Now I want to tacticool one up.
>>
>>51647266
Are you gonna pop some zogbots when they go door to door?
>>
>>51642452
458 socom can achieve near identical performance to a 45-70/450 Marlin in an AR-length action. And the 450 bushmaster is a good alternative if you live in a straight wall cuck state, cheaper than 45-70 and available at wally world or any big box retailer. The only real perk with your picrel is that it's a more durable and reliable gun, while sacrificing ammo capacity.
>>
>>51644744
I am pretty sure I checked and they match but I could be wrong. I think maybe the buttstock might match but the handguard does not.
>>

I despise feral hogs. I had to stop leasing the land for cattle because of all the ruts, it got dangerous to keep any livestock out there. I use .308 and just leave the corpses for the carrion or their buddies.

Fuck off with that, you’ve never had feral hog. It’s nearly inedible, tastes like absolute shit. If I’m so hard up I have to go get feral pigs processed, I need to revaluate shit.

That's kind of a big deal. I like the idea of big bore ARs just fine, mind, but there's the pros and cons. Also there's just plain a different feeling with an AR15 and an old fashioned lever-action rifle.

>Who the fuck started this trend and why

My guess is Gabe Suarez. He's the first one who wrote an article I read back in the late 90s probably for American Survival Guide talking about using a lever action as an alternative to the semiauto rifles and 10+ round magazines that were affected by the Assault Weapons Ban then in place. His was a Marlin 336 with a leather butt cuff, sling and the rear sight off a 1903A3 if I recall, but the accessory market was different then too.

A .30-30 will drop a man just as well as a deer, and used lever actions go for much cheaper than an AR-15 so NBD if you use it and it disappears into evidence for months or maybe forever. 50 state legal, and the press and prosecutor can't gas light the public/jury with muh evil a salt raifu bullshit since it looks like a cowboy/deer gun.

It can be pretty based if you have a threaded barrel with some subsonic ammo, otherwise it's a little outdated. Though I feel a lot of people forget that lever-actions were about the best at dropping people or animals quick before the introduction of reliable semi-autos, and just because there are better options doesn't subtract from how deadly it can be

This was really the start of "tactical" lever guns. There's always been optics and even suppressors on them, but this was so radical and out of left field that it really threw everyone through a loop and got people thinking on how to bring the lever gun forward without adding an A2 birdcage and adjustable M4 stocks. Marlin's Dark series is a really good take on the concept.

As for me? I just want an M1895 in 7.62x54R

>>51653408
Nah he describes it in the article. Its a 336 shortened to 16 inches with an 870 front sight and a 1903a3 rear sight. he does say though "In retrospect, the standard sights that came on the rifle could have been improved a bit and then left alone."

Blame it on the retards who put buckhorns on the modern lever guns. Fucking buckhorns suck and block like 2/3rds of your field of view, when a shallow v rear sight and post would be better. People tend to upgrade not to the shallow v rear sight but to peeps because if you are upgrading the peeps are better and most Americans are used to AR sights and then at that point why not add a dot for fast shooting?

buckhorns are great as long as you know how to use them and the gun isnt a 22lr. 22lrs range is too short to get anything out of the buckhorns.

The ability to mount a light, red dot, and suppressor doesn't make something tactical, nor does use of polymer or carbon fiber. These are just standard modern features/materials that are expected as a bare minimum. There isn't really a reason to not include these features unless you want an antique look.

.357 Magnum is pretty damn effective as a revolver cartridge, now add all the zip you give the bullet with a 16" or longer barrel.

1.) Leverguns are fucking fun.
2.) A supressor on heavy subsonic 44 special or 38 special rounds makes for a very quite shooting gun.
3.) Why not throw a red dot on it? I mean I am an iron sight grognard, but even I can see how they're okay on leverguns and a flashlight is too, especially since I use my 44 Henry big boy (case hardened, octagon barrel - useless but cool features I gladly payed more for) to pop aggressive coyotes and hogs of all sorts, and deer and the flashlight is quite useful.
4.) Lever actions are fucking fun.

Anon... Do you like... think about what it would be like to shoot these before you type these replies?

I wouldn't call it a trend, but I honestly I don't have the time or money to deal with typical lever cartridges. It's nice to have options though. Not EVERY brand new lever action needs to be a puritanical homage to the 1873 winchester or the 1860 Henry, just like not EVERY new 1911 pistol needs to be a government 1911A3 or 1970 issue series 70 with novac sights. Or not EVERY pistol has to be a glock 19 or something.

In an absolutely shocking development which shook the earth of the gun community, it turns out to ACTUALLY be possible to sight in an optic while taking the drop of your given cartridge into account! Seemingly, this was actually what they did with old blackpowder guns lobbing pinball sized lead bullets back in the 1800s, as suggested by recent archeological evidence.

Yet more shocking, is that some lever-action rifles were actually built around high speed smokeless 'spitzer' cartridges (such as .303 British, and more recently .243 Winchester), using non-tubular magazine designs stacking the cartridges next to each other instead of front to back.

These brand new developments will SURELY change the gun world overnight!

Cold Steel Italian Longsword. It sucks. It's heavy, imbalanced, lacks a distal taper, crossguard comes loose after one or two cuts and the stitching on the grip digs into your hand if you're not wearing gloves. On the plus side it's nearly indestructible. I actually like my budget Deepeeka(far left) better. Although I wouldn't recommend either. Deepeeka's quality are dice rolls.

It's almost like people want to be able to mount accessories without the aid of a gunsmith. Besides, classic lever actions are still being made, these existing doesn't somehow destroy all previously existing lever actions.

Same. Leaf shaped blades make me rock hard. Dagger is Sting. No idea of who made it. No maker's mark or anything. Only identifying marks on it is a serial number stamped into the top of the crossguard, pic related. I suspect it's one of the stunt swords that Weta sold off after finishing LotR but I have no way of proving that aside from it looking like the extra stunt swords they were selling during that short window. So, who knows.

The longsword is a Darksword Armory Sage. Which they modeled after Glamdring. Grip is different and it lacks the gems and runes of the movie's version but it's a solid sword. Super comfortable and easy to wield.

All my swords, axes, spear and mace are "battle ready". High carbon full tang. Some have peened pommels, some are rattail. Not entirely sure about Sting but it does have a peened pommel, which tells me it's more than likely high carbon. And if it was decorative you'd figure it would have all the extra detail like the runes and gold leaf design on the grip.

If you want a battle ready sword check out kult of athena. Lots of choices there. Lots of good deals too.

Does it come with tritium sights? My eyes are getting a little fuzzier so this would be a nice touch. Would like to get one if they do have the right sights.

To be fair, that's not too extreme a tacticooling. Making it black is not so big an issue, the paradrop lever cover is actually a very good isea, and a single rail on top is actually useful. It's waaaay better than some shit I've seen.

Via the legal channels & methods to acquire a Category A&B Firearms License, I've been a legal gun owner for years, it is an easy process to get a firearms license (Cat A or A&B anyway) in Australia, as long as you are not a greasy criminal type.
It is as easy as paying some $30-$35 for a permit to hunt feral animals on crown land, completing a safety test which is so easy that if you fail it you really shouldn't own a gun, fill out the application paperwork with a person of a particular profession (Police, Nurse, someone who can open a post office, Chartered accountant etc) to sign you off as fit and proper person, submit your paperwork and then once approved you pay for the license and get your photo taken, takes a few weeks, then you get a permit to acquire your first firearm which will take 4 weeks on your first purchase.
Make sure you have a gun safe that is secured/fitted before you get your gun, then the cops will come out to inspect storage, after that as long as the cops are happy you have an adequate safe that is bolted securely (or weighs 150kg or more empty) you are good as churches.

The late Col. Jeff Cooper described a "Brooklyn Special", a mostly stock 30-30 lever-action fitted with a ghost-ring aperture rear sight. This for places that ban or severely restrict handgun ownership.

The website is convenient if you want to look up if a model has distal taper, it helps in this regard, even if buying stuff somewhere else. Often not even the manufacturers have blade thickness at base and tip on the website.
