Legacy 1892 stainless carbine
I always thumbed my nose at lever actions. I bought this one in .45 colt 'cause it was a steal and love it more every time I shoot it. It is lightweight, thin, accurate out to 100 yds, low recoil and a joy to lug around strapped to a backpack. Kids and ladies love shooting it too.
The only caveat is a stainless carbine with a dyed black, wooden stock is kinda homely.
Love it to death.
