My dad always had a real fascination with the lever gun. He would say you could get a real fast second shot to which I always replied if the first one is good no need for a fast second shot. I do have several lever guns but very seldom shoot them any more. I do plan on getting my dads last lever gun out this summer, a Savage 99 model 243. I removed the scope and replaced it but have not shot it as of yet. I also have two Winchester model 1892 rifles that are getting almost too valuable to shoot. One is a 38 WCF or 38-40 and the other is a 32-20 which I do not consider a deer caliber.
I'm on along search for my dads rifle too. I think it got sold by an outside family member to some guy in Cross Forks, PA which is near where our family camp was ( from 1920 to present). Dad had a Winchester Model 55 in .30-30 caliber, probably with a half or 'button' magazine. He bought it at Pierson's Hardware in Renovo some time after high school( 1933 ). The model 55 was only made from 1924 thru 1935 so that narrpows it down a lot. The serial number MAY BE in the range of 18000 thru 20550. It may or may not have been a "take-down" model and should have had a half magazine. I just received this eve a lot of info form my sis in Emporium that indicates it's either at camp or was sold in Cross Fork so I may put an ad in the paper some time to see what comes of it. These leverguns sure are intruiging no matter who the prev owner was.
