this is one that I really like, very smooth action, slender but still a large rifle

the rifle is my favorite caliber - 45/70

the revolver also a favorite caliber - 45 colt

First glance...

(I've not yet had my coffee) revealed a Stevens Favorite with a tubular magazine. :-D Very interesting rifle, never seen one in person.

hint : not a stevens and it is a model 1886 [ nm ]

Oh, that was understood...

just my first impression on opening the post. It's also not a falling/rolling block (or whatever the Stevens Favorite is). I really should have my coffee before logging in. :-D

having my second cup now

Otony

pretty rare gun. i have bid on them for years, and finally got this one a few years back. very smooth action...some say the smoothest of all lever actions.

Is that the version with rack and pinion for the lever?

by Otony, Friday, May 01, 2020, 23:00 (95 days ago) @ cable

Those are truly the Rolls Royce of lever guns!

Otony

yes, rack and pinion. just glides easily

people, I am NOT "most people", but I LOVE the history behind the things. The 5 "W"s and how of the things fascinates me.
