"Well, I hope Santa does not have a problem coming down my chimney with a Miroku -1892 -357 in one hand and a pre-64 Winchester 1892 -30/30 in the other."

If Santa finds you an 1892 chambered in .30-30 he is a magic old elf, indeed.

I still love my Marlin Guide Gun in .45-70. Short, handy and can pack a wallop. .45-70 has got a lot of versatility if you handload.

My lever action craving will then be satisfied.


He will with the pre-64 Winchester 1892 -30/30. The 1892 was only chambered for pistol caliber rounds (.44-40 and .38-40 initially). It took the 1894's improved and stronger mechanism to handle the power of the Smokeless .30-30.

I’m glad I’m not the only one with the itch. I’ve been doing modern firearms for a while but always wanted some lever guns. Unfortunately I’m going to have to get a ‘66, a ‘73, and a ‘92. You know, because.

Rolan, I really want one of the new Winchester ‘66s. Can they handle .38 +p loads? Wouldn’t do many, but always curious.

I also have a Winchester 94 Buffalo Bill .30-30 with the 26" octagon barrel. My father purchased it back in the mid-60s. It is in pristine condition and has never been fired but it has very little collector value. Seems that they mass produced the hell out of them.
And I do believe that there are better editions of the Winchester 94s out there to be had.

My next purchase will be a Original Henry Rifle model in .44-40 made by Henry Repeating Arms. I just haven't pulled the trigger yet.

Nosigforyou,
I'm not really sure. I haven't seen one in "the wild" yet. I CAN tell you that they are a lot more difficult to take down than an 1873. The side plates are dovetailed into the frame, whereas the 1873 has removable side plates.
