How much for a decent leveraction .357?

    I've got a GP100 and am going to be getting into reloading soon so in theory I'll be having an abundance of .357 rounds.

    Been getting the itch to get a lever action rifle in the same caliber....mostly for target shooting and probably varmint hunting too.

    I know nothing of lever actions though so I was just wondering about how much I need to think about spending for a decent rifle.

    Nothing fancy, just something that shoots straight and is reliable and doesn't cost much...basically the "GP100 of leverguns".

    See if you can find a used Rossi. Its a copy of a Winchester 1892 and a nice gun. I have a Navy Arms I picked up for a little over 300 at a gun store. When I bought it it felt better than any Marlin 94 I have ever felt and when I got done changing the springs and polishing the internals it felt 10x better than that. The only complaint I have about it is the sights but a Marble semi buckhorn rear sight in the future.

    cool....300-400 was the price range I was hoping to get in so these suggestions sound good to me so far

    Didn't consider the .38spl factor....do all these .357 guns shoot 38spl too (like a revolver) or only some of them?

    As long as it is a round nose flat point type bullet my gun will eat it.

    Pistol-caliber carbines cost more than rifle-caliber ones. I'd expect to pay an extra $200 or so for a new one.

    Mine is well fitted and finished. It is not, however, like the nice walnut on my higher-end Marlins. It is neither checkered, nor walnut.

    Depends what you want it for, and what you want to spend on it. $399 is at least $100 less than you could expect to pay for a walnut 1894C; probably more than $100 less. For that, and for the immediate availability, I bit. I won't feel bad about actually using it as intended, that way.:)
