Lever Action Tactical Rifles

 You laugh but while producing an expert declaration for a Highland Park, Ill. case, I found that in the three years before the 14th Amendment incorporated the Second Amendment against the states, Winchester was advertising its repeater as two shots per second.  That is 120 shots per minute, comparable to an AR-15, perhaps very slightly slower. Hence, YouTube is now awash in tactical lever action videos.

 But an AR-15 is magazine fed.  The Winchester lever actions were only 18 rounds.  That's okay, you can buy lever action speedloaders on Amazon.

Here is a homemade one in use.


  1. There are box-magazine lever actions, as well: The Savage 99 and BLR are fairly elderly examples

  2. The last time I checked, Winchester lever actions are magazine fed from a tubular magazine located parallel to and underneath the barrel.
