I am getting back into shooting after a long hiatus. Recently inherited several antique pistols and getting out and shooting them also made me get out and shoot the rifles I have had for awhile. One of the guns I didn't get was a Marlin 1892 in .22 caliber. A gun I admired for many years but never got to shoot. So now I am looking for a lever action to do some plinking with since all I have are single shot .22 rifles. I know that another 1892 is out of my league price wise and I also want something I am not afraid to damage. Wanting to keep the price around $300 which I am finding is really limiting except maybe to buy a Henry. Intrigued by the Marlin 56 and 57 but a 39A would be good too.
