I have a Browning Lever Action B92 that is a .357 and it's sweet to shoot, and has a gorgeous finish too!

I have a Winchester model 92 in .45 Long Colt that is well made that cost half what I paid for the Browning. I have yet to shoot anything but target loads out of it.

I would love to try a Henry rifle, but the opportunity has yet to present itself.

I had a Puma Model 92 in .357 years ago and it was a well made. Even the wood was nice.

Henry's are nice, but I do like my Ole Navy Arms 45LC!

Depending on your budget, I have 2 rossi levers 45lc and a 357, they nice for the money, all the rest are marlins 22lr, 357, 2 44mags and 3 45/70s, can't beat a marlin. Only thing I can say is don't buy a New York Marlin. The quality in not there. You want a JM Marlin

The Henry's are fine, but I do not like the way they load. I'll take my marlin any day.

How it loads is why I like the Henry. Living in Wisconsin there is nothing worse than unloading a lever action and having the ammo all drop in the snow. With the Henry they all drop in my hand. Just my 2cents worth.

To each his own, that's why there are so many choices out there.

You get what you pay for. If you spend less $$, you get less quality. I too have been shopping. I have held some real sloppy junk in my hands over the last few months. I am kind of spoiled. I am comparing everything to my old Winchesters and my Dad's Savage 99.

The new Henrys are really nice, but you are up into $750 plus for the best of the bunch. I was thinking about the new 41 Mag and 327. Thought they were the cat's meow....until I found my cost would be at the $750 mark....I can get a lot of early Winchester for $750....so have not been able to drop the hammer on one of them. Most anything I have touched with a new price tag of $400 and less have not been worth the $$ in my opinion. Just no quality to the ones I picked up.

Keep your eyes open on Gun Broker for some of the used Winchester, Marlin, early Rossi's, etc. You can find some great buys on straight wall cartridge guns if you keep watch...

I've got a few Marlins and a Rossi Ranch Hand. The Marlins are smooth, run perfectly and shoot great. The Rossi runs pretty well but I've not gotten to accuracy testing yet. Initial testing I hit what I was aiming at so it'll probably be just fine. You can feel and see the quality difference between the two brands but there's also several hundred dollars difference in price. The Rossi is a good working gun, especially for the $. I might even pick yo I've of their carbine in 45 colt.

I've read/heard done not so good stuff on the new Marlins though. No first hand experience but the stuff I've read sez spotty quality and ho hum accuracy. I'm kinda wanting a 45-70 but I've not pulled the trigger on getting a new marlin. Was hoping to find an old jm like my others...

Careful Mike those 45-70's will grow on you. I bought a Henry CCH in 45-70 started shooting it and now have a Chiappa Ridgerunner along with a Browning 1886 and waiting for a Henry all weather. 45-70 is a gas to shoot especially at swingin bowlin pins Al
