I'd like to add a .357 or .44 lever gun to the collection. LMK if you've got one you'd consider selling.

Thanks.
 
What do you want to do with it? From a Cowboy Action perspective....A 1873 will always be faster but really want one cartridge length to be reliable. A 1892 will be stronger and digest more loadings but will be slower. Then a 1894 will be a bit stronger again but have the same clunkyness of a 1892. The new Henry is not in the same category and is priced accordingly. I would get a .357 Rossi before I would get a Henry.

I camp at some family property in CA. I want a CA legal firearm that would be suitable for bear defense.

Thanks for the replies. I replied to a few PMs. Thanks for the tip on Juggernaut, I wouldn't have thought that would be the type of thing they'd have.

Found a decent .357 lever at Willey Bros. Thanks for the tips. Still looking for a Ruger Mini14 in either 7.62x39 or .300blk.

There is a new ban on Russian ammo so 7.62x39 is going to be tougher to get and prices are $$$$ so the benifet of that cheap ammo is not longer a thing.

Not wanting for the cheap ammo, but want the larger bullet. There are a lot of bears where we camp and I would feel better with something more substantial than .223. Plus I am well stocked with 7.62x39.
