2. The tubular magazines are not safe with pointed bullets.
Hornady Leverevolution solved that problem:)
I have many, but not so far back. Oldest I have is a 50/70 Sharps Carbine. Then 30/40 Krag, Model 1917 30-06, 1903 A3 30-06, M1 Garand.
***2. The tubular magazines of lever guns are not safe with pointed bullets. Think about it. :-) ***
I believe Remington developed a tubular rifle with a spiral indentation around the magazine which offset the bullet tip from the primer on the cartridge in front of it. I also believe some foreign nation used the tube magazine in a military rifle with the same spiral grove set up.
Can’t remember the names of them.
