LEVER ACTION FIGHTING GUNS
That's the title to an interesting article by Gabriel Suarez.
But make no mistake friends, as a fighting (anti-personnel) weapon, the lever action is just as useful and deadly today, on a lonely stretch of highway in the bad part of town, as it was in the dusty cow towns of the Kansas Territory more than a century ago.
Our findings were that there is very little that a realistic rifleman (acting as an individual - not a member of a military rifle squad) can expect from his weapon that the lever action cannot deliver.
He also notes that leverguns are more jury-friendly. They just don't scream "Rambo wannabe" like an AR-15
