Some really good advice on this thread and no great need for me to elaborate other than to say that the BLR forend can be problematic with regards to accuracy and that there is no one size fits all fix for this. Also, if the rifle is scoped, the scope will sit high which combined with a poor trigger and poor forend design, is not conducive to good shooting.

There is still some room for improved lever action rifle design. Somebody mentioned the classic Savage earlier, a bit of a shame that this was discontinued. Sako also made the very nice lever action Finnwolf in the old days with its solid action and bedding platform. This was before Beretta took over, back when they used to ream barrels, not customers.
