Whisperin' Wade SASS #36209 posted a topic in SASS Wire ClassifiedsI have a .45 caliber 1894 Marlin Cowboy with a 20 inch barrel, worked over by Widowmaker. It feeds anything in .45 caliber and is smooth as silk. Oh, and it is stamped with JM indicating it was made before Remington bought Marlin. It has the normal use wear and tear and is ready for your next match. $900 plus $50 for shipping to your FFL. I also have an IAC 1887 Winchester that has an action job from Lassiter. I'm not too familiar with these guns but this one has been worked on by Lassiter and has his "drop 2" loading feature. $650 plus $50 for shipping to your FFL. I'm heading to the Four Corners Regional in Utah at the end of April. You can pick them up there and save shipping. Contact me on the wire or direct at [email protected] if you have interest.
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?
