Suggestions on a Lever Action Rifle

I am looking for a lever action rifle. It can be new or used. It has to be .357/.38. It has to be something on which I can mount an aperture sight.

I intend on using it as a "walking around" rifle on our place which is heavily wooded. Most shots will be under 50 yards and fleeting. Targets are typically feral hogs, snakes and raccoons.

The factors I am using to evaluate possible rifles are:

Reliability (feeding seems to be the issue);
Smoothness of action;
Weight (lighter is better);
Length (shorter is better); and
Cost.

I would appreciate your opinions.
