I'm telling you brother, I absolutely love my Winchester model 94, and I think I may have an ol loop lever in the gun safe. I have taken many a buck with it. it has a very attainable cost and is extremely reliable, my normal shot distance with it while hunting is 50 to 75 yrds and if your hunting the scrub it will bulldog through anything you need it to. The next day we have off together we will head to the range and I will let you try her out, I bet 5 bucks you will fall in love.

Don't you have to be 21 to buy a handgun? scratch

That's a fine lever action. Is it .45 "long Colt" (aka ".45 Colt") cowboy rounds? I've been looking for a good truck rifle to handle my Taurus Judge ammo so I don't have to monkey around with carrying different calibers.

Cool

I don't know that particular model, but I carried a Winchester carbine on my cousins ranch in the Australian outback, it came in very handy once or twice. I love the Winchester action and the one I had was incredibly accurate. I much prefer them to shotguns or bigger bore hunting rifles.

Amen Greyson...... A-Freakin-Men.

I grew up with winchester, the model 94 is the firearm that tamed the west in my humble opinion!

Yeah, except it was already tame by the time the 94 came out.

With millions of the model 94 sold it has to be the most popular lever gun ever produced. Just be careful because buying guns can severely hamper your pipe and tobacco PAD.
Very Happy

21 to buy a hand gun... not to own. And Alex, I've shot a winchester .30-30 many a time, and I owe you 5 because I DO love it.

Its not a rossi but I like 45s too. Look on your local ARMSLIST.COM and see what pops up. Some time you get lucky, some time you have to have patents.

Mr. Plumbernater, can I please just stop by your house and have a pipe and a good long conversation? I'm hoping you got some decent tea, and a firing range near by...

Don't have one but it is the next one on my list. Have Marlin's, a Winchester Model 94 Trapper and a Uberti 1873 with the octogan barrel, all 45LC and all fine shooters IMHO.

Which one is your favorite 45LC lever action rifle? One day, I want to get one. I know next to nothing about them, and haven't shot any lever-actions in 45LC--they've all been .357. I'd prefer a stout carbine, just as a truck rifle.

The 45 long colt is a good round. If you get into reloading you can load from mild like the cow boy loads, to stout like a hunting load. The lever actions are strong , espesially the marlins. The marlin 1894s have a short action that is sweet to work, and a 45 in the hunting loads pack a pretty good thump. I had a marlin 1894 in 44 mag that is a nice rifle. you can shoot 44 specials and the magnums. Gave it to my dad for coyotes.

Oh my that's beautiful. I like iced tea plenty. So I'll be over.
You can shoot both magnum and special in it? Doesn't the length of the round affect anything?

Marlins seem to be popular. I picked this up in the spring. 45/70, Lots of power in a compact package.

Gorgeous rifles, guys. One day I'll have a sweet lever-action in the bunch. Sadly, I probably have to sell a bunch of boomsticks to cover medical bills. Neutral A man can dream, though. Cool Guns just make me feel good about the world. Laughing

For nostalgia you can't beat the Uberti 1873 with the octagon barrel. It is basically a replica of the old Winchester 1873 (top eject). It is a very well made firearm. The downside is that now they are going for around $1200. The receiver is case hardened and it has very nice furniture with a very smooth action. For an all around shooter/hunting rifle I prefer the Marlins. Smooth action and I like the side eject. Mine is an older model and I have heard rumors to the affect that their quality control has gone down somewhat. Again, just rumors I've heard. The one that is a nice shooter but kind of sounds like a John Deere tractor when cycling is the older Winchester Trapper. for awhile Winchester quit manufacturing the lever actions. I've heard that they have started manufacturing them again (by Maruko in Japan) but I haven't seen any personally. For a "Truck Rifle" my choice would be the Marlin, both because of cost and for durability. I'm sure others probably have a different favorite. I am still interested in getting the Rossi as it reminds me of the old Mare's Leg. I think that Henry also produces one now.

IMHO the recoil of the 45LC in a rifle is very managable. It has less of a "sharp" snap that the 357 has in the same rifle. The 45LC is more of a slow push. Remember the velocity is a lot slower and you are pushing a 255 grain bullet. I have heard that the 357 Marlin is a heck of a hunting rifle because of the increase in speed and ballistics coming out of that longer barrel.

Thanks Mike, interesting thoughts. I'd have a hard time throwin' around a $1200 rifle in and out of my truck, and as you said, the Marlin might be the best way to go. I'll keep an eye out for an older one (I prefer a good, old rifle with personality, anyway, dollar-for-dollar, too...) and maybe even in .357. 45LC is fine, but it's also an expensive round, and I don't reload. Looks like I'll have to see about a .357 wheelgun as a sidearm and get a Marlin .357 instead. Darn, more hardware? What a shame. Rossi Ranch Hand Lever Action 710492

PS, I save all of my 45LC brass for any of you that reload, in case that interests anybody.

Thanks again.

The marlin rifles were taken over by remington in 2009, Their quality is hit and miss since. The good ones were made before the change in owners. Look for the JM stamp on the barrel in front of the receiver. That will tell you its a true marlin, and not a remington made marlin.

Didn't Sturm & Ruger go corporate or something, too? I've heard some people who've been concerned about them going down the tubes, too. Neutral
