Does anyone know of any aftermarket levers for the Marlin 30-30 rifle? I'm looking for an enlarged loop like the one John Wayne uses in True Grit (easier to use with gloves on).

Thanks!

I was never a huge fan of the really large loops, but I do like the "in between" size marlin is putting on its new compact .45-70!

I've been pleased with the one that's on the WWG Alaskan Guide.

Ditto Wild West. Bear in mind that it's not a drop-in and must be fitted to your rifle.

WWG for the Big Loop Lever, DRC for a more moderate sized loop. I bought the DRC for my 336ss-LTD and the fit was a perfect drop in. I later lightened the lock pin plunger spring by 1/2 coil to smooth lock up. I love it. I had the WWG big loop lever on another rifle and while nice it ended up being a bit too big for me. I think that one was designed with hunting in really thick gloves in mind where it would excel.

Be safe

an enlarged loop like the one John Wayne uses in True GritI now you have a Marlin and not a Win. 92, but this thread (http://www.gunsnet.net/forums/showthread.php?t=94011) may be of general interest.
