Let's see, Browning 22, Marlin 30-30, and Marlin 357.

I have a Marlin 30-30, had a Marlin Golden 39A .22 that I wish I had never traded off.
My dad had one of the take down, saddle ring Marlin .22 that they made prior to the 39As. He would get teary eyed any time he talked about trading it off.

How does that Browning .22 lever action shoot? It's a good looking rifle.
Mine does a great job. I wish I would have had the money to buy it when I was middle teens instead of my middle 40s.

i have a winchester 22 lever action..
how good is the 357 caliber lever? does it shoot 38 special?
and how are the ballistics of it?
I have never run anything but 158 swc 38 target rounds through mine. It is a great plinker with those. No noticeable recoil and not much retort. It hits where you are aiming. 38s are cheap to reload. It wouldn't be my first choice to deer hunt with, but if I caught an armadillo nosing around the yard...
