  1. New to me Winchester 94 30-30

    Winchester & Team Winchester
    I bought a 307 Winchester chambered Marlin barrel from a forum member I'm going to put on my Marlin 336W. I didn't like the thought of not having a 30-30 and have been looking around thinking I'd probably get another Marlin. Then I remembered that my buddy I was going to share a gun show table...
  2. Winchester Super X not always burning all the powder

    The 45/70 Govt.
    Hi, Today I was shooting my 1895 GG at the range in preperations for the mandatory (in Norway) big game test, now I know my gun shoots great with 405 grains lead bullets with GC that I load myself, but as I got 100 rounds of Winchester Super X 300 grain hunting bullets when I purchased my gun it...
  3. Winchester vs Marlin Rifling

    This past weekend I went shooting with a friend. He has a 1990's Winchester 94 and I was using a 1948 336, both in 30-30 shooting Core-lokt 170gr. When I hit the steel (~150-170 yds) it made a loud ping and swung the target. When he hit it he knocked it off. Would this be caused by the...
  4. What do I have here? - Winchester 1894, 4-digit serial #

    Winchester & Team Winchester
    Not posting because I'm interested in selling, just curious what I have as I don't know much about it. I inherited a rifle that has been in my family for a very long time (there's pictures of my great, great-grandfather holding it anyways.) It is a Model 1894 Winchester in 38-55 with serial...
  5. 7-30 waters vs 30-30 Ackley Improved

    General Gun Related Off Topic Stuff
    I have an opportunity to buy a winchester lever action for really cheap(100 or so) and I may rechamber it to 30-30 AI or 7-30 waters and I would like to know which would be better. I need decent range (250 yards). The cheaper the better. I will be willing to put 300 dollars into my project. Any...
  6. Which 45/70

    The 45/70 Govt.
    Which 45/70 should I get. I am not extremely recoil sensitive. I have shot a 30-06 and a 300 win-mag. I don't really care if it is a single shot, lever action, or one of these bolt actions. I would prefer that it is under $1250 with optics or peep sight. Doesn't matter who makes it. Need one for...
  7. Family Heirloom 1892 Winchester Lever Action Made 1904

    Guns Of Our Fathers
    This was given to me by my father although its still at his house in Canada, it was aquired in Florida at the ROTC building in Pensacola in a brown type wax paper loaded with packing grease. Paid $19 dollars for it in 1967 or round abouts. I did some looking around and I found S/N: 301041...
  8. Field gauge fully chambers in my Winchester 30-30

    Winchester & Team Winchester
    I just purchased a Winchester 30-30,model 94 (production year 1977) at a local gun show. I own a 1972 Marlin 30-30 too which I cherish and maintain like a new vehicle. I have "nogo" and "field" headspace gauges and to my astonishment when I inserted the field gauge it fully chambered in this...

    The Marlin XL7/XS7 Boltaction Centerfire Rifles
    Bought a Marlin XS7 .308 with a mounted scope today at a gunshow. I am more of a handgun owner but wanted to start using rifles. How do I find "accessories" like a bipod, stocks and other items I would need for this specific model? I know it seems like a stupid question but all of you had to...
