Molly, my little LSI/Puma M92 Trapper in .357 Mag did the job Sunday evening. Dropped this 8 pt in its tracks at around 90-100 yards. I loved this little carbine before. We just bonded a little more now. Really appreciate the Firesights. I'm usually a rear peep, front gold bead guy, but the fiber optic sights just jump right into place and make open sights a lot easier for these tired, old, not so good eyes.

Sergeant Major, that is a fine looking rifle.

I had a brief affair with a Win Big Bore in .356 Win. It was one of the models with the checkering. Beautiful lever gun and a really slick action on it. That was decade or slightly more ago when .30-30 ammo was running around $8-9 a box for the regular stuff. I got the gun home then realized that the $25 or more a box then was bit rich for my blood and traded it back in for something else that didn't cost as much to feed. Wouldn't mind that one back now.

I like the "backup Elk rifle" idea.

Those Big Bore Winchesters actually make sense as a easy handling thumper. Unfortunately that was when all the rage was the new developments in whiz bang, new group of zippy magnums were becoming the rage. A lever gun just wasn't cool when you could have the latest .270-338 STFU proprietary rocket mag to brag about. Never mind that guys were buying next canyon over chambered rifles for stand hunting at a few hundred yards maximum in places that didn't even have canyons.

Glad the Big Bore got some face time in the thread.

Someday I'll get the DVD from Steve's Gunz and give it a good going over to really slick it up, but knowing me that's far down the trail.

It came with the fiber optic sights and I've long been the kind of guy who has to have peep sights on his traditional lever guns. But dang if these things don't just snap into place when flip the gun to my shoulder all lined up. And like yours, this is an accurate little gun. I've only ran it offhand at 25 yards, but it shoots snug little groups with a variety of ammo and the .357 and ..38s land in nice clusters not too far away from each other. I'm just not going to mess with that so as much as I love traditional sights, I'm sticking with what's working well.

I really love this little gun. I'd get rid of my AR before I got rid of my little 92.

As you can see, other than the sights mine is box stock as far as finish goes. I'll have to bookmark your pages on the refinish and the loads. Good site.


Amos my friend, good god that thing is sick...

A nice lever action is def. on the "bucket list"

Thanks. Did you see the shot a few posts up where she's sitting on the rack of an 8 pt buck I took with her Sunday evening? Yeah. Love this little gun. It's just such a pure pleasure to walk with that if I had any property I'd probably being taking her for frequent walks just for the pleasure of doing so. LOL.

Yup. I used a 180 Grain Federal Power shok JHP. I'd have preferred a soft point in that weight, but that was what I could find locally with just time to check sighting and verify or make any needed corrections.

For me 100 yards is pretty much max for the .357 and only if you feel comfortable with the ability of you and the rifle to put the round in the right place. 75 yards and under is even better. This is on smaller Texas deer and not those big northern deer. A .44 mag or good loaded .45 Colt will usually be a better choice for hunting in a handgun calibered carbine, but .357 Mag will do the job well if you do your part. The .44s and .45s will make a larger hole and more often leave an exit hole. That's also what I happened hand and I had good confidence in the little Trapper. You also have to remember that back in the day plenty of fellows hunted with Win 92s in .32-20, .44-40 and similar handgun rounds.

Well I've been told before that back in the day using rifles with handgun calibers was even popular for shooting people. I was told that in the old west it was too inconvenient to carry two kinds of ammo, so it worked out better to just have one caliber.

I just happen to have a Ruger Blackhawk 6.5" in .357 Mag to go along with it. Very convenient indeed.

I call short barreled lever guns, especially when fitted with slings and peep sights, Redneck Assault Rifles. They do a good job too.

One forum member just asked me a question about a gun I have.

A current production (Miroku) 1892 carbine in .45 Colt with a sixteen inch barrel. This is the only one that I have seen with the 16" barrel. All of the rest of the ones that I have looked at since I got this one about four or five years ago all have 20" barrels. It is a pretty handy little tool.

I really have a lot of fun with the pistol caliber lever guns. I just picked up another 357 last Thursday

I can finally join this thread.

Here's my Big Boy .44 carbine with a Brass Stacker sling. I think both the rifle and the sling was worth every cent.

My New Henry Long Colt

I'm an olde guy - 71 - grew up on westerns living in the west. Never had a lever action rifle before. Can't say that any more. Picked up a Henry .45 long Colt and am most pleased with its accuracy.

I came very close to getting the .45 LC myself, but in the end, I decided I wasn't ready yet to invest more money into reloading yet another caliber. The .44 just gave me more ammo options. At least for the present anyway.

My first lever gun was a .22 Henry several years ago. It was soon followed by a Henry .44 and later a .357.
