Default 308 rifle

I am looking for a lever action 308 rifle. Would appreciate some input on where to look. I was looking at a model 88 Winchester on gunbroker, but saw a henry that looked pretty nice and it was new.

If you are looking for an AR platform look at this Armalite...

Edit: Oh, lever action, nevermind.

I have a 308 in the BLR. I can't say anything negative about it.

Savage made a lever 308 back in the day. I think it was a model 99.
I had one for a short time and liked it alot. Unfortunately if was relieved from my possession by the local riff raff...

That model 88 is as good as it gets. Carbine that is matched by none when it comes to balance. Look very carefully at the pistol grip curve under the lever to be sure it's solid. I broke mine and had to have it repaired. Only thing that's ever gone wrong with the rifle and I've had it since 1964. Also have a BLR in 7 mag that generally stays in the gun safe unless I'm looking for a loooooong shot.

Some would argue that the BLR isn't a "true" lever action, but I could care less what they think. There are simply no bad things to say about them. Bought 2 of them in the past year if that tells you how I feel about them (one in 7-08, one in .308).
