    To each their own, but plastic/black furniture and pic rails just do not seem right on a lever gun. I understand the advantages that some of those modern things offer, and I thoroughly enjoy modern things (you did see my AR build thread, right?), but it still doesn't seem right. Hell, even most scopes on a lever gun seem out of place to me.

    Again, to each their own. It's just not my thing. Also, sometimes it's just fun to hate on something over something stupid like appearance. :p

    You seem really bothered by other people’s opinions.


    Need Moonpie to come over and give you a hug?

    Hoji won't have that nagging thought in back of his head that he is going to scratch, dent or mar that rifle while hunting, especially at night..............

    I doubt his will be a safe queen...............

    I guess that's one advantage to having a gun that's not made of beautifully figured walnut and highly polished blued steel. You don't care when you beat it up. As much as I like to hate on them, I'll give them that. If I was going to be dragging a gun through adverse conditions during a hunt, tossing it behind the seat in the truck to be bounced around, or doing anything even remotely rough on it, I'd rather have one of these than a safe queen.

    It still ain't right though. :p

    I drag my blued steel and wood guns through brush and mesquite as well.
