I too love the old lever guns …
Over my years I have sold or traded away items that I really have never thought about again - and then there are several that I wish I had not done it or wish I had back --- A Win 94 in 45 LC was one of those...…. been looking for the right lever in .45LC or .44 mag …. but never seem to see one when there is $ in the glove.
2 levers that have always been on my lust list is a Win 1886 and, perhaps more so, a Win 71 .348

I fell in love with lever guns over sixty years ago. My first was J.C. Higgin's version of the Red Ryder BB gun. I take that back, it was my second. My first, was a plastic 1892 Winchester Mare's Leg like Steve McQueen wore in the TV series Wanted Dead or Alive. I think it was a Mattel product. It even came with a fancy quick draw holster like Steve had. Yes Virginia, I would love to have a real 1892 Winchester Mare's Leg in .44-40 but Santa ain't a millionaire.

I currently only have two lever guns, much to my chagrin, an ugly '94 Winchester .30-30 with the scintered metal receiver that is a good shooter and a new (Remington) made 1985 Guide Gun in .45-70. But at the top of my wish list is a Marlin 1894 in .44 Magnum and one in .45 Colt, preferably both in very good used condition with JM stamped on the barrel. I also would like to have a straight stock Marlin .30-30.

My first lever gun was a '73 Win and I've been lovin' them ever since. I don't have many current pics but here are some older ones. A few are in multiple pictures. I will admit that I might have a buying problem when it comes to these.:)
