I think that might be an uncomfortable grip angle. Hopefully you don't have any of the problems I did.


Looks like a nice gun, you will enjoy I'm sure.

They look mean!

I think your grip angle will be fine if you keep it out and away from your body, like a stock is there but without all the restriction.
(That tends to be something I can't do on the field without thinking about it specifically)

Think long and hard before adopting one of those large loop levers. They may look cool, but they are hella impractical and, unless you are planning to spin your gun around on your lever hand (Terminator style) then you are sapping your lever of all it's efficiency of design.

Good luck with those sweet looking gun

Thanks for the advice Drum. Why is the larger loop harder to cock? Perhaps a longer cocking length which in turns slowing you down a bit? Just trying to understand why it's impractical and less efficient.

I wanted the large loop for the purpose of spinning the gun but I imagined it being a trick more than a practical move for in-game usage.

The larger loops do help if you wear gloves though, or have hands the size of gloves.

Good point on the gloves. I can't decide if I like gloves or not. I don't feel as in tune with the gun wearing gloves but I always put them back on after getting shot in the hand.

Large loop levers that I have seen so far, primarily original Winchester or copies thereof, are way bigger than even a gloved hand, unless it is a mitten or some kind of thick winter glove (in either case, the large loop cuts you no breaks in the trigger area).

In my experience, the large loops are for looks. If you want the quickest lever stroke, you'll want the traditional, fingers only lever shapes.

Otherwise, you get a lot of hand movement for less levering and imprecision from your large loop levers.

You wanna be a lever ninja, you gotta be fast.
