I have a strange attraction to these lever action .22 centerfires, but don't own one ... yet. Funny thing is that it would be strictly a range toy.

I picked up a Browning B92 in 357 today. The wood finish is in bad shape and needs to be re-done. It was $599, probably too much, but there aren't many of these around and I couldn't walk away.

Speaking of Browning lever guns - I have a Browning BL-22 that I absolutely love. Great little gun.

The Browning lever guns are nice, but the prices are high anytime you see them.
Even the BL-22, which I really like, is now high, compared to the semi-auto 22lr long guns out there.
But look at what the nice Japanese made Winchester 1892 models are selling for.

Which reminds me, the same shop had an old Savage box magazine fed bolt rifle chambered for .25-20. Interesting, but a pretty plain rifle with not much to recommend it that I could see.



Funny you should say you saw the Savage. I've been looking for one, but in 32-20, and in very good condition, for a long while, because I'm invested in the caliber.
25-20 is a pretty expensive cartridge today, unless you load your own, or look around at some of the obscure companies that load for cowboy action shooters.

Just you TRY to find a deal on a Winchester Model 71 OR the Miroku Browning clone of the 71.
