First Look: GForce Arms Lever Action Carbine

by Braxton Taylor

Following the release of a .410-bore lever-action shotgun last year, for 2024, GForce Arms has just unveiled the “Huckleberry,” a new lever-action carbine chambered in .357 Mag. The Huckleberry is outfitted with a 20-inch barrel which allows the powerful .357 Magnum cartridge to achieve its full ballistic potential. Its tubular magazine will also hold 10 cartridges. The GForce Arms Huckleberry lever-action carbine is a classically styled Western lever gun with Turkish walnut furniture. The stock has a straight wrist and a lever loop wrapped with a strip of leather. Though traditional lever guns typically come with “buckhorn” style tangent sights, the GForce Huckleberry instead is equipped with more modern high visibility sights, making target acquisition easier.
