Good evening, I have just joined the forum. Been a SG certificate holder for 30 years and recently got my FAC (four weeks from start to finish so big thumbs up for Northumbria Police). Had a life long interest in all things gun related, especially older stuff, ie from mid 1880s to 1980s. Just achieved a boyhood dream and bought not one but two lever action rifles so looking forward to lots and lots of practice with them. Also looking to start reloading so interested in advice and tips relating to this and got no gear yet so anybody selling I may be interested.

welcome, there's lots of fun to be had with levers. with reloading there's lots of discussions in here about new user set ups etc, and levels of kit, so get searching :)

Miss my days at the Louisa.....455 Webley speed shooting as a guest of Consett club.
Nice range. Glad it never got closed.

What lever actions do you have?

Had a Winchester 94 Trapper in 45 Colt for a while.
Recently added its younger brother to the safe....a 9422
Getting a Winchester 92 Trapper take-down as soon as the paperwork goes through.
