I have seen a lot of 357 lever guns. Only have 3 requirements. 1 I would like for it to shoot 38spl reliably. 2 would prefer a side loader. 3 not cost $1,200 and prefer it cost less than a ruger 357/77. But if my only option to get a side load that can't tell the difference between 357 or 38 is to spend $1,400, so be it. It seems like ever 357mag lever gun is like this. "It runs 357mag great, but" That but is something to do with 38spl.
