So at risk of sounding like a heathen… A random thought. I’ve shot Rossi, Henry, Chiapa (I am not going to bother with that) and Marlin in pistol calibre lever action.
Marlin (side eject) is chunky, built like a tank and needs a new lifter out of the gate, but beyond that, it’s probably one of my favourite lever actions.
Henry (side eject) - similar in the chunky tank department. Smooth as silk. Has it’s own little nuances, but also my favourite lever action.
Now we move to Rossi (Winchester clone) and Winchester it self (all top eject). I am not impressed with the action. Am I the only one who likes the idea of owning a lever action Winchester rifle, but when it comes to actually shooting it, it sits at the bottom of the preference ladder?
