Very nice rifle, I have several Rossi's I have a 44 Mag in Stainless, paid $411 two 357/38 Specials in blue one old one new $395

I collect Winchesters, but they can be pricy I just paid around $500 for a 32/20 That needed a lot of parts, stock, forearm, front sight, magazine tube and I just hope it will shoot.

Nice rifle! I have always loved .45-70s. In fact, I have been looking at a modern Browning 1886 Winchester .45-70 with lust in my eyes. .45-70s make great black bear rifles (or grizzly back-up) especially with Randy Garrett loads http://www.garrettcartridges.com/.

Thanks,

Yeah I've been shooting the Winchester .45-70 rounds and it thunders for sure. It's a 20 inch barrel so it's only 2 inches longer than the Marlin guide gun.

I've seen video where a guy hunted with a .45-70, took down a Bison with two well placed shots. That's a big critter, I'm pretty sure they don't go down easy if you're not aiming too good.

It's a lot lighter a rifle than I thought it would be for sure. The recoil is great too, instead of the snap you get from .30-06 and .308, it's a shove on your shoulder.

I would like at least one Winchester though. Problem is I would want the replica of Theodore Roosevelt's .405 1895 Winchester and those are NOT cheap. He named his "Big Medicine" and took down game with it in Africa.
