I should have defined that I meant The the older guns,like mine.The newer ones,with tang safeties,often have scopes.
I confess that I know very little about these fine guns,except that I kinda like them. Just as I like the Winchester '94.
I'm pretty much a bolt gun Guy,and about 90% of my rifle shooting has been with them.
But the last two guns that I bought were levers,and they are getting most of my attention lately.
