I am in the market for a tactical 30-30 lever action. I know that there is the UGLY Mossburg and Marlin 336 Dark.

Does anyone have an inside to when/if Henry will come out with a Big Boy X in a 30-30?

Didn’t Henry come out with a big boy and a side loading gate 30-30 recently? That’s the only thing I’d consider new over a Winny 94.

I don't have a muffler for that size and don't have the money nor patients to get another muffler at this time.

My Omega 300 will work just fine with 30-30
I just let that glorious thunder roll on through, but lever guns are tuns of fun so if this is your first it definitely wont be your last and 30-30 is no slouch.

Ya i've had a few Henry's and wasn't too fond of them.

I have a Marlin 1894CST in .357 that is quite fun. Unless you can get the Henry in the side loading 30-30, I'd look at a Marlin or Win94. That whole front-load-gotta-take-the-rod-out-bullshit has always been a deal breaker for me... .22's being the obvious exception.

I also have an Uberti 1873 lever gun in .357...and damn that thing is sweet
