  1. I'd like some advice. I am interested in buying a lever action rifle and single action revolver (ideally in the same caliber, but not required). I'm a Marine and have a lot of experience with semi-automatics, but little experience with revolvers or lever action rifles. I primarily want them for novelty and fun shooting, which makes me think I should get a pistol caliber such as 357 or 45 LC 1873 or 1892 Winchester. I have no experience with these types of guns, so I don't know what else they are well suited for besides Cowboy Action Shooting, which I'd enjoy getting into someday. So essentially I'm wondering (to figure out which brand/caliber would be best): 1. Which is better between the 1873 and 1892? I've heard that the 1873 has a smoother action, and the 1892 has a stronger action (Although I admit I don't really understand what that means). 2. If I want to use the rifle for hunting, would the 30-30 caliber 1894 be better? 3. For the 1892, is the Chiappa Alaskan Takedown better or worse than the Winchester? 4. Rifle vs carbine vs musket argument? (Picture of musket attached) 5. For the pistol, which is better between Ruger Vaquero and Uberti? Or is there a better one than those? 6. Do Cowboy Action Shooters shoot a lower caliber so they can shoot faster and more accurately? (Such as using a 357 pistol with 38 special rounds in it). Or do they typically go 45 LC or 44-40 for authenticity?
  2. Howdy, I am searching for an 1892 carbine only in 44-40 preferably or 38-40. The perfect candidate would be one of those John Wayne commemorative ones with the big loop and the medallion with his face on it on the stock. Knowing those are very hard to come by, one of the new ones would work also. I'd be interested in an original as well, just as long as it's not in junky condition or is priced like an original 73. A Rossi carbine would be a distant fourth, but would need to be in 44-40 so that's a big stretch as well. Anybody have anything they want to part with? I have cash to trade and/or an 1866 sporting rifle with the 24" barrel in 45 colt as well as a C Sharps 1875 in 45-70. Thanks for looking.
