    Winchester Model 94 in .30 WCF (30-30) made in 1917.

    I havent shot it because I don’t know what ammo I can safely shoot without damaging it...any suggestions or is any good enough?

    There are manufacturers who make "Cowboy" reduced cast bullet rounds that should be a little easier on the rifle - for example:

    At the same time, modern 30-30 ammunition is not loaded to higher pressure than 1917 30-30 ammunition was. I would have a knowledgeable gunsmith inspect it first, but it should be fine with full power factory loads.

    Just one rifle... Glenfield 30 (336 copy). My father gave it to me for a birthday present. Never had a use for a .30-30 rifle, since not allowed to hunt with it in NJ, but would never sell it. Not just because my father gave it to me, but it was before they started putting safeties on them. Half cock is good enough in my eyes.

    Did have an Uberti 1860 Steel frame reproduction, in .45 Colt. Sold it, as I really never warmed up to it. Nice rifle, but should have got something with a front handguard.

    I do have Century PW87... but not a rifle. Might be a cheap Chinese shotgun, but it definitely is fun to shoot a shotgun based off the 1887/1901 pattern. I do hope to one day get it cleaned up, possible some sort of finish work... but it works fine.

    Damn some of y’all have more lever guns than I have ARs! I only have one right now. A Ruger 96 .22mag. Always wanted one and found one a couple years ago. I had a Savage 99 in .308 for a while but sold it. I would like to have a Winchester 87, most likely a modern copy so I can use smokeless 12 gauge instead of bp 10 gauge. And I am playing with the idea of SBRing a .45 “mares leg” and threading it for suppressor use.

    Only two currently.
    Marlin 336 straight stock (RC?) in 30-30. Currently working it up into kinda of a quasi scout type thingy, just need to hammer out the optics.
    JC higgins 36A (?) Just a re-branded 336 from the 60's I believe. Great rifle, shoots like a house on fire.

    Future plans, Henry in .22, .357, and possibly 45-70. I really like the current Henry stuff.

    I only have two: Marlin 1894 .44 mag and Henry H001 in .22lr . I grew up with a Win 94 in .30WCR and will always enjoy Americaís First Assault Rifle.

    I met a collector of Marlins who had several large safes with drawers stuffed with various models, variations and years. Must have a few hundred immaculate rifles.
    It is in vain, sir, to extenuate the matter. Gentlemen may cry, Peace, Peace but there is no peace. The war is actually begun! ...

I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!" - Patrick Henry in an address at St. Johnís Church, Richmond, Virginia, on March 23, 1775.

    One Marlin 1894 in .44 mag. Bought it specifically to FUDD out in the woods and shoot deer in states where only straight wall is allowed. Haven't done that yet, but I do check zero every year. Shoots quite well even though the front sight hood moves around. I could probably fix it with a little attention, but as this model is recent one with no collection or sentimental value, I don't usually play with it. Hell I don't think I've even cleaned it.

    I would shell out for one those Winchester lever shotguns though.

    For whatever reason, I see lever guns on the social from time to time with modern (keymod) rails, optics, and suppressors. Seems kind of silly, but kind of cool in a way.

    Had a lot of fun the other day at our gun club shooting steel silhouette targets with the .44 Marlin for the first time. The .44 really hammers those larger heavier plates! Knocked them down consistently to 100 yds but beyond that I was having troubling figuring the drop (wet ground not showing any hits). Out to 50 yds quick shots were knocking down 4Ē plates easily. At 75-100 yds I had to take a few seconds to aim more carefully. But starting at 125yds it seemed to drop quite a bit more.

    Had a couple of Marlin 1894C .357's and one in .45LC in the 90's when I was shooting CAS. Foolishly sold them. Recently picked up a Henry Big Boy Steel in .357 to fill that void.
