I was thinking about using "Shameless Porn" as the title, but figured that might attract the wrong kind of attention. :shock:

At any rate, I invite y'all to post .45-70 related pics of a favorite rifle, or collection, or dream rifle, or whatever.

Here is my beloved Mirokuchester 1886 Takedown.

That's some pretty nice wood on that "plain jane" 1895, clarkfork. 8)

shootrj2003, could you tell me about that ammo, one of those bullets looks odd. It could be my eyes, but it looks like one has a lead bullet with a copper nose. :?:

:D Stubby little critter-getter! I like it. Almost shortened the barrel on my GG to create something like that but decided I wanted more barrel, not less, so I traded for a 22" 1895 Marlin. Marlins are great lever guns!


My old Guide Gun.


The newer 1895 and my .22 Marlin 39.


Marlin 1895 on an elk hunt in October.

I can't think of a rifle I'd rather carry for timber or brush hunting.

Here is my Marlin 45/70:



And my T/C Contender Super 16 .45/70 (my next step with this will be a Williams FP, as I really like the peep on my M1895G):



And if you are curious as to a size comparison between the two, this is the best that I have right now:

I see that we are in full agreement on what to use for Elk. Actually I use this same setup for all of my big game hunting. This year I almost nailed my Elk with the 44Mag........damn, maybe next year.
