As a tactical Lever Gun, I can see a use for the rail...truth is, kinda wish I could buy a forend rail set up like that for my 336...but the AR stock seems like it is a bit low looks like all cheek weld would be lost if you used any type of optics

I thinking of getting one in the .22, and maybe even the 30-30 if it works out. It'd be nice if they made other calibers.

To look at it, I'm not sure how good it's going to feel in your hand, since the stock neck is a little weird, but otherwise, hey, why not?

Idiots are running around with "tactical" 10/22's, M&P 15/22's, pistol grip shotguns, etc etc, why not add a tactical levergun? I'd be hard pressed to come up with REAL arguements for why my Marlin 1894 is inferior in a home invasion to my M4, and could even think of a few reasons the 1894 .44mag is a better choice. I'm not really into rails, but some guys are. I keep a little flashlight taped to the side of one of my Marlin 60's for a walking light while coon hunting. A rail would sure make more sense. Heck, I wouldn't mind having a light mounted on my .30-06 for walking to the stand in the morning.

What they SHOULD have figured out is how to make a leveraction with a detachable box mag, and then they'd really have had something.

To each his own. I like the idea of producing a marketable "modernized" levergun that targets "today's shooters". Heck, there's a a "tactical" 1887 leveraction shotgun in the new Modern Warfare video game, and after running an '87 for cowboy action shooting (followed by a Win '97) and an 870, 1187, and Benelli M4 for 3-gun, I can say that I see the merit in the old designs, and frankly, if you modernized the furniture, there's no real reason they wouldn't keep up (except compared to semiautos of course).

Personally, I think THIS makes more sense than the Henry "Mare's Leg" pistols that are back on the market now (lumped into the same category of AR-15 pistols and AK pistols). They take 2 hands to shoot/operate, so what the heck is the point other than just looking cool? (And yes, they DO look REALLY REALLY cool).

Form trumps function in today's economy, so if a guy likes it, I'm glad that they can buy what they like.
