Yes this is a bit "over-thetop" or "tacticool" for a 30-30 lever action gun, but never-the-less, it makes me happy. Looks aside, I will focus on the function of the weapon.
THE BAD- The action and loading the tube. The action- I now own two leverguns, this one and a marlin guide gun. My experience is not the best with the Mossberg. In order to load the round a metal "elevator" picks up a round and feeds it up to the chamber at a 45? degree angle. This frequently causes failures to feed. I've tried using more force when cycling, different rounds (round tipped remington, hornady leverevolution, etc...) and both have their issues getting stuck before chambering. The marlin I own cycles differently, and has no issues feeding. Loading the tube- No matter how I hold the rounds, or what type of round I use each round seems to push it's way inside of the tube, closing the tube cover, or pushes the round out and onto the floor. The manual states that each round is suppossed to be held by the tube cover as you load the next. Not so.
THE GOOD- Love the ATI stock and the muzzle brake.
OVERALL- FLAWED ACTION/LOADING PROCEDURE, BUT FUN TO SHOOT WITH ACCESSORIES NOT FOUND ON OTHER LEVERGUNS.
Not an expert, but I hope this helps someone to make a decision. I rated it in the middle as function is a neccesity for me over "coolness".
P.S.- Hope to buy a Henry in the future to compare actions.
