Hi from Western Australia.

I've had a long term interest in lever guns having owned several over the years. They were mainly Winchesters but also included a Rossi stainless 20" carbine in 44 Magnum, which I let go on leaving the farm for the city.

I only have one lever gun at present, an old 32 WCF Winchester 92, which is something of a bitzer as it sports a Model 53 barrel.

I'm currently looking at acquiring a 38 / 357 Rossi 92 16" carbine that will be used in pistol cartridge lever action silhouette competition.

Bitzer - Australian/New Zealander for mongrel dog or person of mixed race.

That describes a lot of my firearms. Thanks for the new word!

Welcome from GB. I'm not the only Pom** on here but you'll never hear any whingeing from this one.

**Actually I am British but that's just a generic umbrella nationality as I'm from the Isle of Man, and we are so very different from the English..!!
