does anybody make one? I am looking for one, because i like the feel of lever actions, you can load the mags with a round in the chamber, my bro, me, and my dad all have one (ammo commanality), and it would look bitchin with an aimpoint.

anybody?

Winchester used to make the 1895 in '06 in the original production run, but I'm not sure if they produced any when they made that repro run a few years back. Either way you can find one, but you'll pay out the nose for it.

I think there are some issues in regards to a spitzer slug in a tubular magazine...

Ever heard of the BLR?

Different magazine, but it's sure as shit a lever action.

Browning BLR maybe?

I believe Browning does, but it's box-magazine rather than tube-fed, because using spitzer rounds in a tube-magazine can lead to... detonation issues.

Oh, and it's .30-06, Short for .30 caliber, design of 1906.

i know what you are saying. i would run only soft point ammo.

You could have a tube loaded 30-06 but you would have to load the ammo yourself with roundnose ammo seeing that no one makes any and find a way to convert a long action lever rifle.

You can get a Savage 99 in 308 which is about the same thing as a 30-06. Other than that it's Winchester 1895 or BLR.

Go to a funshow and work the actions of both, I think you will find the Marlin to be much tighter. This is what I did and ended up with a very nice Marlin 336 for $200. Also I would try to find a rifle in 35 Remington, much better ballistics. I kick myself for getting a rifle in 30-30 only because I didn't know anything about the 35 at the time.

There used to be. Hornady has just developed a new bullet they call the Evolution. It's a spitzer with an elasto-polymer tip rather than the hard plastic. It deforms under recoil and won't set off the cartridge in front of it. Check it out at www.hornady.com. They're really cool.

Edit cause my link didn't work.

I have a Browning BLR, that is chambered for the 7mm Rem Mag. It has a 3+1 box mag.

Check out the Browning BLR. They make long action lever guns.

I have one in .308 and it's a pretty handy little rifle. The action cycles a lot betterthan the Marlin or Winny.

Browning used to market one called the BLR. It could be had up to .300 Win magnum, I think. It used a rather unique action as well....Here is a pic of one:

Well I just tried to look up the current ballistics info on Remington and found the current 30-30 ammo is better than the 35 Remington. The info I was going on was from an older reloading book. I guess they haven't been developing the 35 as much. BTW the difference isn't that great but based on what is shown and the greater availibility of 30-30 I would go with that. Keep in mind the 30-30 will only be good within 200yds unlike a 30-06 which is effective 300+yds.

i really want to have this as sort of a " oh shit, put the red dot on the zombies" gun that i could use to hunt with (smaller stuff), and hand to someone in a SHTF situation.


and it would look bitchin with an ACOG
