The reason you don't see them is they are to costly to machine,however Tarus makes several that are copies of the old Winchesters and as such are great guns. They make one that's a copy of the old Win. 1906 and others that are copies of the 1890 style(I think) I have an original Win. 06 and have thought I may get the copy to keep my original from wear. I promise you you will love a good pump I still see some of the old Remingtons around too.
Henry makes a slide action 22, very reminiscent of a turn of the (last) century Winchester or Remington gallery gun. I haven't tried one, but my wife has a Henry Golden Boy 22, extremely smooth action, accurate and reliable. Also, Henry has great customer service. www.henryrepeating.com
They weren't that expensive used when I was younger and I loved them.But I am still partial to levers which weren't that common.The drawback is they both have lots more little parts than the bolt or even semi,s. sam.
the rossi's were bought out by taurus but are still being made, the last one I got a few years ago was in 17hmr and that is fun. I believe they were still in that $250-300 range. I had a henery and was not imprressed. I spent more time fighting with the extractor than firing it so it went down the road, traded it toward my 204.
I did find that Remington made some Modern versions...the Remington Model Six from 1980-88, the 760 from 1952-1980, 572 Speedmaster from 1952-1988, Sportsman 76 from 1985-87, & 7600 Rifle & Carbine from 1981-2002/1986-2022.
Currently they offer the 572 Speedmaster in .22s/l/lr. Looks like they continued the old 572 line nicely. BUT they stick it to ya for $600+ for the dang thing...grrr.
I'm still hoping for something REALLY sharp & modern-looking, like the benelli..
