Steel Lever Action .30-30 Side Gate.30-30
The first smokeless cartridge ever issued in America in 1894, the .30-30 placed more venison on the table and more antlers on the walls than any other caliber. Designed from the get-go for the lever action, it’s remained the ultimate medium game hunting cartridge ever since.
The blued steel Henry Lever Action .30-30 Side Gate is constructed from the bottom up to get optimal performance from this decent cartridge. Handy at only seven pounds, this well-crafted handgun has exceptional accuracy, hitting strength sufficient to pin the largest deer, and mild recoil owing to the small chamber pressure and the rubber recoil pad.
A 20-inch round barrel offers adequate open sight radius for successful close to medium range engagements. A drilled and tapped receiver gives the possibility of simple scoping for stretching out farther. Side ejection keeps discharged casing off the scope and out of your line of sight, with wasted brass traveling towards the front to make it safe for left-handed hunters too.
The five-shot tube magazine may be loaded from the front or topped up via the side gate. While deer rarely need 5+1 capacity, pigs or coyotes may. Smooth and quick cycling of the sharp, precisely machined action allows fast follow-up shots while retaining the sight image. Great balance and compact 39-inch overall length enable this rifle shine in thick bush and hill terrain, with plenty of accuracy and power for wide country hunting too. In a pinch, it’s a good defensive alternative with a traditional, innocuous appearance.
