Just looked at their website, and they have "Lever Action" listed on their Rifle search list, No mention if it is for a new version of the Model 99 Rifle,.


Anyone have an inside track on what the Company is planning ?????

That model 99 was a sure enough dandy in 308

I read that there was talk of lengthening the action to handle larger caliber ammunition

That is strange.It seems to me their CEO said a while back they wouldn't go back to the 99 because it would be cost prohibitive.Of course,maybe their not coming back with a modern 99

I do love the fast handling of a good lever action!

Forget that fear of gravity-get a little savagery in your life.

I'm mounting a scope on a 99 takedown in .300 savage for the up coming deer season. Looking forward to trying it out.

They actually did that and made one in 30/06 and one in 270 as prototypes they auctioned one off for charity and he other is on display at there corporate offices

I always thought the 99 would be fantastic chambered in some of the short mag cartridges

I have a couple different 99s including the me in 358 and yes it’s a deer hammer it’s also kind of rare in that caliber and when you find it expensive, mine was a hand me down from a child less uncle who adopted our family when my dad died

Being a winchester fan (blame John Wayne and westerns) I always thought the 99 was an odd looking duck. That is until I handled one. The 99 is something special and a classic. I'd like to have one.

My youngest boy’s first rifle was a 99, one I bought when I was 17.

I always thought they were the ugliest levers ever made. Mine is a 308 but shoots about a 3" group at 100 so it never leaves the house.

My dad’s model 99 was a 308, which he gave to my son. All of mine were 250/3000, which my son now has. We sold the 308 and the other 250/3000 when I moved to Illinois where rifles are not allowed for deer hunting. Probably should have kept the takedown one, but didn’t.
