Lever-action rifles are rifles with which the type of action which uses a lever located around the trigger guard area (often including the trigger guard itself) to load fresh cartridges into the chamber of the barrel. On the down-stroke, the spent cartridge is ejected from the chamber and the hammer is cocked. A spring in the magazine forces the next round into the chamber; locking the lever back into position sealed the rifle back up into firing position.

Antique lever-action rifle[edit | edit source]
Based on the Henry rifle, this centuries-old firearm design can be easily found around the Point Lookout area. This lever-action rifle is modern variant on the design, that is, being chambered to fire modern 10mm rounds. Holding ten in the tubular magazine, reloading is a matter of pushing up the spring from the base of the barrel to the end of the magazine and twisting the barrel open. Once open, one gently slides the ammunition down into the magazine rim first.
