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.

This lever-action rifle is modern variant on the design, that is, being chambered to fire modern 10mm rounds.
