Winchesters made in Japan are of excellent quality. You can't go wrong with a Miroku made 1873

Quick edit- I need to see pics of your 55 mag lever gun!!! That has to be insanely powerful!!
Thanks for that info. Because of the thread HiBC referenced, I think I'll pass on both Uberti and Cimarron.

Pity, because they make rifles with the features I like. Octagonal barrel. Color case hardening. 357 mag caliber. 1873 model.
