Best lever gun

The 1895 Winc was the best lever gun I ever owned and shot and could handle modern cartridge . I had one in 30-06 with the long range peep and sold it when I need money in the 60's . BIG MISTAKE on my part . This is not my gun I stole the pic off internet

The 1895 Winchester was truly a modern gun in the cartridges it could shoot, I'll say that. The originals, though, are now out of reach for most of us as far as price goes. Closest I've ever come to one is one of the Miroku reproductions - very nice gun.

I don't do well with rifles as far as recoil, so a 30-06 lever gun never appealed to me. (Pistols, of course, are another matter. Not sure if I even have a limit on recoil with those.)

The Browning 1895 made by Miroku I believe the action was like there was 100 lbs of sand in it compared to my original I had so I never got on and the original ones are worth there weight in gold now . .

I'm just the opposite. I don't mind recoil on a rifle but not my cup of tea in a pistol. Ya I know, why am I shooting rimfire?

I've seen those old Winchester factory peeps on other classic Winchesters. We have an expert collector, here in town. He has no trouble spending 15K for an original that he wants and you can't fool him. That's saying something, because the collectible Winchester market is known for its frauds. No place for amateur collectors.

All the same, did the gun come from the factory with the sight? I'm no expert, but I believe that some of them did.

Like the Lyman #2 or the Marble tang sight they were a factory options . Winc did a lot of custom work in the early years . The 1895 had 2 different bolts and one was soft and head space could be a problem . Collector don't care since which one they have since it will not ever be shot. But a shoot like you or me you need to know if you buy one .

That explains it. Those old collectible Winchesters area a whole different world from stuff like we shoot, you're right. I do admire them, all the same. Many years, ago, I did get a chance to visit the museum in Cody, Wyoming. Well with the visit.

Has anyone ever made it to the JM Davis Arms & Historical Museum in Claremore, OK? I visited it several years ago when I drove Route 66.

Hello to all, I am a few hours new here, wrote and sent an intro but may have launched it into Purgatory.or was Limbo -

- Anyways for the topic here, I loved the Winchester Lever. I bet that 1895 was very nice to own and shoot. I had the short lived Winchester 1894. With an iron peep sight. It was a .375 caliber Big –Bore, in 200 and 250 grain. I loved that Rifle and I too had sell it when I need money. Worst mistake, however Winchester stopped producing the .375 bullets. It was a great bear and heavy brush gun.
