Bleg: I want to buy a lever action rifle…

Preferably in a pistol caliber and as of right now I am leaning towards .357/.38 special…

So talk to me about lever guns.

I really dont want to spend $1k on one or even the $600 or $700 it can run for some of the nicer models. I really dont mind if its a beater, but I want one that runs reliably.

Rossi makes one in the +/- $500  range which is a perfect price point for me, but I am reading that quality and reliability is hit or miss. Also, what do these guns look like when they are found in pawn shops? Whats the price points look like for used models?

Give me some insight, point me in the right direction and help me make a buying decision.

Thanks.

They seemed very solid, and noticeably lighter in weight than OEM Glock mags. Also, They had no holes in the back for round count. Not sure how I feel about that, especially if the 30+ rounders will be the same way.

*I did not buy.
