    Well, a 2-400 pound hog close to me in thick brush is enough of a reason for me. A Bear would also be plenty reason. And you never know when Skookum will show his ugly mug. Wherever there is thick brush there is usually something mean or pissy that lives in or around it.

    I have never seen such blasphemy in all of my life.

    Scopes on leverguns...what will they think of next? Before too long, someone is going to pimp out a .45 Colt with night sites and a laser.

    .45-70 Ported

    Off Topic, but I just don't like the looks of the XS mounts...way too many "teeth" sticking up. So, I just went with the standard affair on my .45-70 Guide Gun. Warne bases and quick release Warne mounts.

    Yep, my gun is the ported model and I like it that way. :neener:


    pretty wood...both sides :)

    It's about to get worse. XS is coming out with a tri-rail to replace the forend of a levergun.

    Can't wait:neener:

    Nice rifle, esheato. What is the finish, and is that synthetic furniture or wood?

    I wish I could claim the idea for that rifle, but I can't....I bought it from a guy on here all dressed up.

    Specs are as follows...

    - Marlin 1895GS base gun

    - MPI fiberglass stock [comes with Pachmayr Decelerator recoil pad]

    - Gunmetal Gray CeraKote from Fit 4 Duty on all parts, with Micro-Slick on bolt

    - DRC Custom Big Loop lever, stainless

    - DRC Custom magazine follower, stainless [replaces the stock plastic follower]

    - WWG "Bear Proof" ejector, stainless

    - WWG trigger kit, stainless

    - XS Ghost Ring sights

    - XS Lever Rail, short

    - Leupold FX-II 2.5x28 IER scope, matte, duplex

    - Warne Maxima quick-release steel rings, low, matte

    Co-Pilot

    WWG Co-Pilot.....the scope is forward because it is a take down, just one more reason.

    FLtoAK05,

    Aaargh -- I think that Co-Pilot is my I-must-have-it du jour!

    That is one slick-looking piece... Techie and retro all in one. It would make a beautiful Big Brother to my Winny Trapper .357.

    Tax dollars, here I come! ;)

    Hey Tom,
    Here's my guide gun:
    BillWeddlemuledeer1881Marlin12Nov07.jpg
    a 1881 Marlin 45-70 , double set triggers for fine work, with Smith Ent. full buckhorn and ladder sight, with sight ups posted to 300 yards. Uses a Lyman/Gould 330gr lead bullet @ 1500 fps MV.

    Back to your 16 1/2" carbine. What powder & charges are you going to use?
    I would think with the strong action you could use powders like IMR 4227, 2400, get excellent acurracy, and minimal muzzle flash. I would keep a rear ghost ring sight for backup, low profile kind that slopes up , not like a pedastal that can get bent or broke off.
