Mossberg 400 Palomino

Notes: The Model 400 was built from 1959-71, and was for the most a standard-pattern rimfire lever-action rifle. The receiver was slab-sided, with a tubular underbarrel magazine and a lever loop curved to fit the pistol grip wrist of the stock. The stock was of the Monte Carlo-type, with checkering on the pistol grip wrist. The fore-end was short and squared in cross-section; the pistol grip wrist cap and the buttplate had decorative white spacers. Barrel length was 24 inches, with sighting being done through a spring-leaf and elevator rear sight and bead front sight. The Model 400-A was virtually identical, but used a fixed notch-type rear sight which was dovetailed in and replaceable. It is identical to the Model 400 for game purposes.

The Model 402 was a carbine variant which proved to be far more popular than the rifle version. The Model 402 was introduced in 1961 with an 18.5-inch barrel, but this was replaced by a 20-inch barrel in 1964. Sights were simple but adjustable, and sling swivels were standard.

Mossberg 464

Notes: This lever-action rifle hearkens back to earlier rifle designs of the early 20th century, with a classic design graced by some modern features. It is heavily influenced by the Winchester 94, and is meant to replace it as a US-built traditional lever-action rifle. The stock and foregrip are hardwood finished to look like walnut; this makes the rifle lighter while not spoiling its traditional looks. The .30-30 version is available with a straight wrist or a pistol grip wrist; the rimfire model is available only with a straight wrist. .30-30 models come with a 20-inch barrel, while the rimfire model uses an 18-inch barrel. Sights consist of a folding adjustable rear sight and a bead front sight, and the receiver is also drilled and tapped for a scope mount. The manual safety is on the tang; when it is applied, the trigger movement is blocked.

Mossberg 472

Notes: The Model 472 was introduced in 1972, and is based mostly on the old-style Browning-designed Winchester rifles, but with some elements similar to those of the Marlin 336 and the Mossberg 400. Production continued until 1982.

The locking-bolt mechanism is basically pure Winchester, but the trigger mechanism was attached to the lever loop, enabling very rapid firing. The Model 472 is side-ejecting, so it is possible to have the rifle drilled and tapped or grooved for a scope mount, though it does not come from the factory in that condition.

The basic version of the Model 472 is the Model 472PR, with a pistol grip wrist stock, curved buttplate, a short magazine, and a 24-inch barrel. The Model 472PC is the carbine counterpart, with a 20-inch barrel but a slightly longer full-length magazine. (The Model 472SC is the same weapon except for its straight wrist stock, and is identical to the Model 472PC for game purposes, the Model 472SR is the same idea, but based on the Model 472PR.) The Model 479PCA is essentially an improved .30-30 version of the Model 472PC; the Model 479PR is an improved Model 472PR, and the Model 479SR is an improved 472SR. The improvements made are all in the area of their safety mechanisms, and they are all identical to their predecessors for game purposes.

The Models 472SA and 472SB Brush Guns were chambered for .30-30 and .35 caliber respectively, used straight wrist stocks, and had full-length magazines (for the length of their 18-inch barrels). Mechanisms were the same as the other Model 472s.

Reeder Alaskan Classic

Notes: This is a highly-customized version of the Marlin 1895. The standard barrel is replaced by a shorter but heavier 16.25-inch barrel, with Reeder Deep Throat chambering to allow it to digest virtually any sort of ammunition. The barrel is also target-crowned, and engraved with scrollwork and the legend "Gary Reeder Alaskan Classic." The iron sights are replaced by an XS Ghost Ring rear and Reeder Barrel-Band front sight. The standard tubular magazine is replaced by a heavy-duty tube tightly secured to the barrel. The stock has a Pachmayr Decelerator recoil pad on the butt. The receiver is also engraved, with hunting scenes of the customerís choice. The ejection port is greatly enlarged, and the action lever is likewise enlarged. The action is tuned to be super smooth in operation. The metalworkís finish is bead-blasted stainless steel, except for the engraved sides of the receiver, which are bright stainless steel. However, a black ChromeX finish is optional.

Twilight 2000 Notes: This rifle does not exist in the Twilight 2000 timeline.

Remington Nylon 76 Trail Rider

Notes: The Nylon 76 is a modification of the Nylon 66 semiautomatic rifle; it is basically the autoloader with a lever attached to the bolt and the semiautomatic feature removed. This weapon was supposed to appeal to people who wanted a modern equivalent of an old-fashioned rifle, but it seems not many of those existed, and the conversion of the Nylon 66 to a lever-action rifle didnít really work that well, either. Production was stopped after less than two years.

Ruger 96

Notes: The Ruger 96 includes four rifles in four different calibers. All have an 18.5-inch barrel and are roughly the same size (about 37 inches long), and are similar to the Ruger 10/22 but in lever-action. The action is of course, entirely different, being a magazine-fed lever-action rifle. The receivers of the rimfire versions are made of aluminum alloy, while the .44 Magnum version has a steel receiver. The rimfire versions are drilled and tapped for a scope; the .44 Magnum version has an integral scope base.
