    If you have no earthly reason for that 44 Rossi, I wonder what you would want for it, I just got a S&W M69 44mag wheel gun and want a brush gun to match it! Thanks, Stan

    Stan, Im sorry if I came across as wanting to sell the Rossi, that wasnt my intention... "Brush gun" is about what it would be good for. It's a nice little carbine and Im not willing to let it go just yet.. it is a nice set with my older Uberti pre-Cattleman .44.. Lord knows I looked long enuff to find one! I believe the box and papers are here somewhere too. Kinda cool for "cowboying up" but neither one for hunting!
    Thanks for expressing interest however.

    I recently bought a '79 Winchester 94 in .30-.30, mfg. right before Olin/Winchester got out of the firearms business. These late 70's 94's have some CNC machined parts replacing the stamped parts of the early Post-64's. Mine is a traditional top-eject rifle without a cross-bolt safety. The action is strong and I'm very happy with it. I did research this for a few months and it was the absolute best I could do to own a piece of history within my budget.

    Initially I wanted (and still want) a Model 94 in .357 mag but I cannot afford it. Hopefully Marlin is reading this thread, because I see a lot of you also want the same!

    I love these two, 45/70 and .357 mag. Both JM-stamped relics :)

    You've got some great calibers there.
    That .375 has gotten rare!
    If I could add, or maybe trade, it might be a 95 Winchester in .30-40.
    That could replace the .30-30 and .375 guns, although the 95 is a bit larger and heavier than the 94, so that might play into things a bit.
    .30-40 is a great round and both the 180 gr. and 220 gr. loads are healthy! (2430@2360 & 2200@2365, respectively).

    I think I'd like one in .44 Mag as well!

    Oh yeah, and one in one of those handgun rounds, too!
    That would be a blast to shoot! =D
