    Wrong rifle sent to Volko - it was a doozie

    so first times for everything.....

    one of our customers bought a semi auto Winchester on gunbroker....I forget what model.

    He comes in, we open the box...poof! Winchester 1895 lever action in 30-40.

    Cool rifle for sure, but back it goes. Back when rifles were rifles. Thing is definitely full sized. Actually felt great in the hands.

    That's really cool. I actually almost bid on a '95 in 30-30 a few months ago. Much shorter barrel though.

      Back in 1999 a dealer tried his best to sell me a 1895 in .303 Brit. Made me a great deal, offered layaway, tried his best but I was getting married and thought I should hold onto my money. What a mistake. She's long gone but I would have still had the rifle...

        Would'n'chya like to be there when the other guy opens his box and there's a "semi auto Winchester ... I forget what model".

        No one ever wished they didn't have a gun.

          You would think “inferior” product on these old levers. However, they were so over designed and tight back then it’s like holding a bat.

            One of Teddy Roosevelt's favorite rifles. Also it's a JM Browning design.

              We have one (or more) in stock in case you need one.

              .30 cal US (30-40)

              Lyman factory upgrade sight.

              In a sense, you could call a lever a semi-auto.
              All you have to do is swing the lever!

                    LI Ammo what was the purpose on the second hinge where your hand goes on the lever? I didn't know that.
