Would like to own a repeater rifle. Does anyone know where to find one. 3030 or something similar.

Marlin makes a nice 30-30. The 30-30 delivers around 2000ft/lbs of energy at the muzzle. I hunted with one as a kid.

If you're set on a lever-action, the Winchester 94, Marlin 336 and the Henry line are good options. I usually find a good supply of these at my local gun shows, and I would assume you could as well.

I like my Marlin 336. (30-30)



I chose that one over any other because it ejects from the side so placing a scope is easy, plus, its just a good rifle.

The Winchester '94 and the Henry give you the classic look associated with the 30-30 round and the old west but the Marlin 336 offers a stronger action and more solid construction and is in my opinion a better rifle.
