Lever Action Rifles For Survival




What do you think about this video?

Jam Handy: Lever guns... no problem for home defense. You wouldn't even need the scope for inside the home type home defense. If the bad guys are 150 yards out, the cops and lawyers are going to ask you why you are shooting at them from that distance. But if trying to feed your family with a deer, 150 yards is about right with the scope. -- He made several good points, but I noticed he repeated some stuff several times. Not a bad video to give folks a heads up that what they might already have in their gun cabinet, or maybe what grandpa handed down to them, can defend their wife and kids... not everybody needs to go run out there and buy an AK-47 or AR-15. -- Someone posted they live in an apartment and a shotgun works for them... lots of nice 18" barrel, maneuverable shotguns for home defense. Best tip to share of all is for folks to get SOMETHING to defend themselves. In today's climate of riots and protests and looters coming out of the woodworks because they don't like somebody getting shot because they are a felon and resisting arrest, etc... best to have something ready to fend off the evil that is out there.

Ronald Dunne: I'd like to get one in .50 S&W.. that would be a blast and maybe get harder-hitting at longer ranges than the .357 or .44 mag.

hootiekai: Try to do a Marlin 45-70 SBL review when you can. I bought one in Feb 2017 and it did take about a week of some serious loving to get it into shape both inside and out but now its perfect. The QC on the Marlins still needs some honest reflection/resolution on the part of Remington to bring them back/up to the price and reputation they once had. If i had received it in the shape it is now after polishing the pickleens inside and out I would not hesitate to recommend it at a higher price than current asking, however unless you are a gun nut and don't mind investing time and elbow grease into making a classic one of your very own i would suggest looking elsewhere, at least at this point in time.

Joseph Fiorenzo: I am a big proponent of this logic and love that gun as as a companion to my carry recover. Great video too. In my opinion Marlin's side ejection and side loading gate makes it the best candidate for a lever survival gun. I think it is inevitable that other manufacturers not providing these features are losing business.

Alexander Moffitt: Did he really just say a 30-30 is only good to 150 yards? That hilarious, they can go over double that with ease. Iraqveteran8888 has shot shotguns and .22's out farther than 150 yards. Some people just don't know what they're talking about.

Wheels65: Its not intimadating unless your a American Indian!

rusty gray: Sootch had hair!!!!!!

Rob Tolley: quick detach rings, and that Leopold 3 x 9 sabr, 300 yes it is ment to be.

MsScruffy4: Did you say that rifle is a Winchester 94- is not the eject on the top- blocked by the scope? How does that work?

big mike: you video thumb nail is no good.

Michael Taylor: 45-70 any day of the week

That Dude: This video is very good quality for its age

Tim Hood: In the early 90's Winchester changed the Model 94 to an angle eject which allows you to mount the scope on top of the receiver instead of the side and they come pre tapped for one as well! Just passing that along!

Angelus Avila: would you recommend perdesoli lever action rifles

Donald Schumacher: I love my lever guns but I am so tired of people talking bad about my BLACK guns either you are for the right to bear arms are not. Your little comments you sneak in as much as you can are one of the reasons people are trying to take Black guns from us.

Fred Taylor: Thanks Shawn. I was just looking into it.

Fred Taylor: Is there a specific brand or caliber you would recommend? I've been thinking about getting one for some time. My grandfather had a Henry.

James Passmore: My eyes are getting a bit squinty. I have a headache. For a moment I thought he had a scope as big as the rifle on that poor lever action.

Dusty151: In reality, a lever gun will work for just about every self defense situation. I know it's not "tactical" and it's not a "go to war" rifle, but nothing most people can buy is. If I'm going to war, I'm going to shoot the enemy and take his gun. Chances are it's full auto, mine isn't.

Bayan1905: I picked up a Glenfield Model 30 (Marlin 336 with birch stock) in .30-30 about a month ago and one of the first things I did was order a Skinner sight which fit on perfectly since the Marlin receivers are drilled and tapped except for the very early 336's and the 1936 Marlins. The Skinner is a nice sight that really opens up being able to get a great sight picture. One thing about the lever guns, they are about as far from an "assault rifle" black look that politicians hate, not saying they won't get to them eventually since they want them all in the end, but it might be a while before they get to them and ammo is common and no one is fighting over them at the gun shops or online and they are still affordable.
