And I finally got it done. Not gunbroker, but the marlin 1894. It's a 1979 manufacture .357, and it came via a good guy from the Campfire who responded to my classified plea.

Just picked it up today as I'd been out of state visiting family in Kansas. Took it out back a while ago and it put 5 into a piece of cardboard with a 3" magic marker circle on it. 4 of 5 in the circle offhand at 50 feet mad me happy.

Gonna spend some serious time with this one.

I like the Marlins, have a few, 44 mag, 30-30, 35 Rem, 45-70. All JM earlier guns. But.............
Love the Winchester and the clones. Nothing carries like a 92, 94, 86 or 71, nothing, love them. But I'm going to scope the Marlin 30-30 with a 2 x 7 Leupold and the 35 Rem with a 1 x 4. peep of some kind on the 44 and 45-70.
Have a Rossi 44 with a 16" barrel and a 357 Stainless 20" barrel. Both nice out of the box, will be doing the Steve's Gunz upgrades this winter.
What I need is a 94 in 38-55 or one I can send to JES for a re-bore.

The best deal, often the case; get your gun directly from Steve. He packages the price of the new gun with his work and you save time and postage back and forth.

Just a thought.

Try reading this by Jim Taylor. I supplied some of the bullets for the test.

I bought a Rossi 92 in 45 Colt several years ago, slicked it up from youtube videos, deleted the safety and put a rear peep sight on it in place of the safety. My up close eyes got bad and I couldn't really shoot it very well. I did the sacreligious and put a red dot on it, it is now one of my favorite rifles. They are very strong, I run some pretty hot loads through it.

Thing I noticed about the Rossi is that the blued ones are much slicker than the stainless.

Altgough I really like the 1894c, think if I was to buy another levergun it'd be a 92 in 357. They're just so light and handy. I like the look, feel, and packability of the 16", but the 20" points easier. I'd just roll with the factory sights.

I would seriously doubt it.

Liability would be thru the roof, IMO.

Rossi certifying them to be safe is another matter. Joke's on them if something blows.

Call him and ask.

I wouldn't have to acquire the 454. The LC with WFN heavy cast bullet is hard to stop and most bodies would have two holes in them. One in and one out. You won't recover many bullets. Heavy bullets at moderate velocity was one of the things Elmer Keith taught me. Handgun calibers also can gain a bit of velocity in a carbine barrel. Be Well, Rustyzipper.

Agree.

A .45 LC full house load is about all you gonna want. It'll do what you need it to do.
