I'm in the market to buy another one of those "evil" black rifles. However, with recent events and possible bans without a grandfather clause coming down the pipe, I've been reconsidering my decision and thinking lever actions may be the way to go. I have a Win 94 30-30 and love it. It's a 1950's model and still functions very well. My thought was getting a lever in 357. I'd assume that levers wouldn't be on the list and as far as longevity goes, a lever has fewer working parts than the AR15 and does not require near the maintenance. So from a SHTF perspective, and an AWB perspective, what is everyone's thoughts on levers? Love my AR15, but a weapon that requires regular maintenance, as well as rely's on magazines for ammo feeding, I'm really thinking long, long term levers and bolts are the way to go. They don't need any extra accessories and fewer parts that may need to be replaced. I suppose with a lever you could always damage the ammo tube, but who knows. Thoughts?
