Ben Snyder: You hear it all the time about Lever guns being less intimidating than a
black rifle in SHTF. I don't think it makes a difference if you're outside
the "normal" places you'd expect to see a person with a rifle, you're gonna
get noticed no matter what it looks like. That said, I do like my lever
guns, but have no illusions of "just passing on by" just because it has a
wood stock and tube magazine.
guy west: found two marlin 3030s with scopes for around 500 is that a dessaint
Johnny Bratton: Can you address some of the following questions about lever actions and
tube feed rifles?
- Are there any issues with ammo in the tube with the tips of the rounds
"sitting" against the primer of another round?
- I understand that Hornady is making special lever action ammo with
special tips for safety.
- I have a Henry .356/.38 lever, and they only said that aluminum ammo
should not be shot in their lever action firearms.
- Is the lever action "safe" for the hammer to be "let" down, while there
is a round in the chamber? Can it accidentally discharge if dropped or
arrlmember: Great video! Living in CA I tend to shy away from autoloaders and I don't
like having to clean the gas chamber. I have a Marlin 336SC in .219 Zipper
that is a real tack driver, but do not load the magazine for safety
reasons, so it's a single shot. While I do have a .44 Magnum barrel for my
H&R Handi Rifle, your video has shown me that I really need A Marlin in
that caliber. I bought my Old Model Ruger Super Blackhawk in 1965 and the
recoil immediately led me to the conclusion that I needed to learn how to
reload. With a wide range of possible handloads, I have never seen a
reason to buy a .357 Magnum. A lever Marlin would be great to pair up with
a single action Ruger.
guy west: for the rossi m 92 357 38 soec cost almost 700 dollars. a used marlon
locally goes for around 450 to 600 used with a scope
jackal99: I have a Marlin 94 in 25-20, made in 1907 cool gum. scope mount is not
optional, lol. cool gun non the less.
edo flo: Why put a scope on a short range rifle that shoots pistol ammo ????
chizelhead71: One thing you forgot to mention is the low recoil on that puppy, especially
dudley litz: savage 99
The Chopping Block: You got that right. The .357 mag becomes a whole different animal when it's
fired from a 16" barrel. .357 mag carbine & revolver gel test: Remington
180 gr SJHP
Son of a Zombie: Wow, that is a best finished Marlin I've seen! Usually see gaps in where
wood meets metal - but yours is all flush! The gold accents look slick
DWings: keep in mind ppl that lever action of any caliber shoots long cartridges,
357, 44mag, 45 long colt, so unless you're rocking a revolver in a survival
situation forget it. I say get a quality lever gun in a rifle caliber,
30-30 good all-around imo, and upgrade to some nice skinner peep sights or
similar but dont go scope, too "fragile" to losing zero. 30-30 lever with
quality peep sights will make for a durable, powerful, med-long range
"truck gun" that you can throw around but can still reach out and touch
someone AND you can hunt with it...perfect all-purpose firearm for survival
Tom Masi: Good video & nice marlin rifle. I only have 1 marlin ,35 Remington,its from
late 1970s & like it. When I was growing up seemed like everyone was buying
lever actions mostly ,& now days seems like everyone is buying the m-4 &
m-16 or ak-47s military & cop version style guns. Sad to see the lever
actions lost its popularity, but hoping it comes back.
CBS MANITOBAGUIDE: GREAT REVIEW ,
guy west: im looking at a Rossi 357 16 in barrel
cody nelson: i have a 30- 30 winchester modle 94 and i love that thing
Steve Nottingham: I like lever action rifles. But a better bug out gun is a SKS. More ammo
available. Normal stock no scope. and you have better and faster ammo
options. We all have our favorite. I really like a lever action for just
hunting. Rounds are to expensive..JMO.. Nice video though..Peace..
Charles Deeds: 30-30 has much more energy and range than a 44 mag,, although i would
reccomend finding cover from my redhawh 7 and a half barrel, milk jugs gone
with iron sights :) 150 yards with a good shooter
DocLarsen44: I bought the 1894 in 44rem mag/44spl to compliment my Ruger single action
in the same calibers. I feel that the vast majority of hunting and SHTF
situation, here in the East anyway, will be at distances of < 100yds and a
properly loaded pistol round will do just fine in either situation. I have
a carbine of one sort or another in all of my pistol calibers except .380
auto. I even have a PPSh-43c w/rifle length barrel and working folding
stock to go with my Yugo M57, both in 7.62 Tokarev.
Friend of Crows: I like your videos, but Robert E. Lee was on the wrong side of history and
fought against America.
Ulises Corado: did he flinch at 2:18??.. lol
Jon Neet: I have a Marlin Model 1894 too. I put a set of scope mount rings that
also allows me to use the open sights. It makes the gun that much more
Bill Blinky: I know pretty much zero about firearms. However this was an enjoyable &
informative video. Actually I was quite surprised at how quiet it was on
the shooting range. I expected a loud discharge. To be honest with you, I'm
not familar with the phrase 'bug out' and will go and Google it.
Michael Elliot: I have that baby in 44 mag. Awesome and deadly accurate.
mikey johnston: How much for the rifle
Sixgun Symphony: A good choice for states like CA, NJ, and others with an existing AWB.
SAPman G: What rail system are you using?
srspower: You don't want to use pistol cartridges for hunting, way to much of a
trajectory and nothing like enough range. A l,ittle .17hmr rimfire would
out perform a .357 magnum lever action in the field let alone a .222 .223
jeff bloom: how accurate is the scoped rifle?
Tom Nelson: I'm trying to decide between a 357 Magnum bolt action (Ruger) or a 357
Magnum Lever Action rifle.
Darth Glenamus: ROSSIE
WanderingBarbarian: I enjoyed this vid. I love lever actions and this only encouraged me more
to look more deeply into the 44 mag or 357 mag rifles... especially since
you have the ability to feed a pistol and a rifle with the same ammo...not
to mention you can use the 38 spl or 44 spl loads as well. It's definitely
a great option in a survival/bug out situation-dependable rifle and not as
intimidating. Thanks again, keep up the great work!
farmmur: I bought a Winchester 30/30 way back when I was 16. Since then I have
bought other rifles, but I always end every deer season using that old
Winchester. I am 64 now and the fascination of a different caliber is not
there anymore but I still love the hunt. I am now selling some of my guns
and giving the others to my grandkids except the 30/30, a muzzleloader,
a side by side double shotgun and a Marlin 39a 22. That is all you really
need to hunt with.
roderray: I have a marlin golden 39A My dad bought it in '65. I also have a marlin
.35 cal as well as a .30 .30 I have killed a lot of game with all but the
.30 .30 I bought it from my uncle , it has never been fired. When my
grandson gets old enough to start hunting it will be his rifle. Great guns,
thanks for the vid,
Uzeil21: I love my 84 winchester 30-30
Riad Ahmed: You like it that's all modern fight is not relates to red indian and
buffalo modern fight about money casino , extortion , enjoying privet
prostitutes , celebrity etc and oil mining logging invading etc.
MrAwsomeshot: marlin 336 in .35 rem was my first gun. its been passed down from grandpa
to mom to me. I still load for it and carry it in the bush.
Hashmountain: I own the Marlin 45-70 guide gun, a great weapon but the ammo is made of
gold judging by the prices.
cads2880: i have a Marlin 30-30 and i simply LOVe this rifle. very accurate, good
knocking fire power at med range, good mag capacitie. i realy like lever
samuraitactical556: 30.30's with the new Hornady Leverevolution ammo takes that 150 yd round
and makes it a 250-300 yd gun.
Orka DRLJAČA: obvious question : why the gold triger?(i mean is it real gold?) ofc, it
dosent look tactical or how you say, militant
GOBRAGH2: Ever have any unexpected firing from a lever action, since the rounds sit
on top of each other in the tube? I know there are ammo tip options, but
its a safety concern that was brought to my attention. I'm interested in
getting a center fire lever action because rim fire is tough to find where
Smoggy Williams: 30-06 for survival? Or to be more accurate, take down?
gageoninja: Now would a Red dot halo sight be better on one of these guns? I can't
really see myself with a scope on a smaller rifle like these marlins or
other lever action guns.
SOCAL3800: no way.... if crap hit the fan and that is all you had, then yes. but
rifles are not ideal for home protection. they will go through walls to
easy and you could end up hitting somebody you didnt intend to. I shot a
30/30 through 1/2 bullet proof glass at 100 yards. A shotgun with a high
brass waterfowl load is the best for home defense
Thomas Fennell: Winchester 94 30-30 is an all around rifle. A Marlin 336 30-30 is just as
good. Either one would be suitable for personal defense as well as hunting
MrRexQuando: I have never had a "take down" firearm but maybe a good idea for survival.
MrJake985: Make that Boar. Sorry for the typo.
Rudedogma: @redlegagent You "action" the rifle by turning it on its side. With a
little practice it's not too difficult.
