Gross...

Somehow, they managed to put three rails on it without making it any easier to mount a scope or better sights.

If you want a tactical lever action, add a ghost ring sight or a simple optics rail. Also, I think it would make more sense to do in .357 magnum, 30-30 really limits ammo capacity for very little ballistic advantage. It's also not well suited for fast follow up shots... It's a good hunting round, but not a great choice for a combat round.

And a tactical adjustable stock should NEVER go on a lever action, it is disgusting.

Needs a bayonet lug and "Rifleman" style speed loop lever. I can add the vertical foregrip, light / laser mount, and NcStar "Eotech" later.

Just kidding.

After last year's Chainsaw Model 500, I didn't think they could get any more rediculously useless, but I was wrong.
This ranks right up there with the goof "tactical" Mosin-Nagant 1891/30, except (unlike Mossberg's design team), that guy was intentionally being rediculous.

Oh my! This can't be real. How could any gun designer think they could ever sell even one of these. I can see how people might be interested in a lever action rifle with a syn stock and a rail but this?

How about having it is SS?
It could work as a tactical rifle in Kalifornia....

I would have to hold one before I shoot it down,,,

Lateck,
It holds no tactical advantage over a normal one, it just has a bunch of useless stuff on it.

If I lived in Kali, I would get a marlin 1894 in .357 magnum with an XS rail for modern optics mounting... Not a 4 shot hunting rifle with a useless tri-rail and pointless stock.

I don't think it would work very well for anything the way it is designed now.

It has three rails, but none on top where you might want to actually mount a scout optic. It's a 30-30, I don't see much need for a forward grip and a bi pod. Maybe a flashlight but why three rails and none on top?

I doubt you would get much of a cheek weld with that stock. Even if you could, it appears you would need to add a foot of cheek pad to get your eye up to the level of the sights let alone using an optic.

Bird cage flash hider on a 30-30? Some things are just wrong.

I don't see where this rifle offers any gain over a Marlin 30-30 with a scout rail and ghost ring sights. I think it falls far short of any conventional lever action due to the poor stock position. IMHO it has no useful purpose except to get rid of some extra AR parts they didn't know what to do with.

I agree with all the posts, BUT, sometimes we (people, not US) buy stuff just on the
looks alone.... It looks like an assult rifle.... (not)

I think it will sell, look at the Ranch Hand, (rifle/pistol???)
