OK I want a new Lever!


Registered Users do not see the above ad.


Found a 35 Rem used here in town. Should I go for it ? Or hold out for a 44 mag?


I own a Win 30-30, and a Browning 243 BLR

Well, the answer to that is simple: You buy the 35 Remmie and THEN hold out for a 44 Mag!

You also will need a 250 Savage, 7-30 Waters, 32 Win Spec. and a 357 Magnum, at the very least. If that doesn't get you divorced, I don't know what will?!

Can't go wrong with the 35 Rem. Depends on you are going to do with it.The 44 is a lot fo fun to whack steel targets. Then again you can't have too many leverguns.

I'd agree, both would be great! However, if only one seems possible now, my vote would be for the .35 Rem. It will give you approximately 100 yds more range (IF that matters!) about 250 vs 150 yds for good loads in either one. The new(er) LeverEvolution ammo gives the .35 a bit more ummfff and I found it also shot more accurately in my .35 Rem. Buffalo Bore also makes a high Octane load, 220gr for the .35 if that interests you. Nothing wrong with the .44 and I enjoyed my 1894/.44, but it cannot reach out quite as far effectively as the .35.

And don't forget...

Those hi-performance new Marllin rounds... the 308 & 338 Marlins. with LeverEvo bullets, they would stop even a running black bear in it's tracks. Fast, well built, and strong. Fit them with a low power scope, and off you go. I'd say tho'. you should have both of them, one in each chambering. For Collector's Value you understand.

BTW, I have one of the Winchester Mdl 92s of a few years ago, the one of 1000 edition. In 45LC, which, with shortened strong 454 Casull brass, can be loaded to (250 gr lead bullet) about 1600 fps. Yep; danged good short range deer or black bear Rx for sure!

Not original in their lockworks, but flawless in their operations. Way better metallurgy than the pretty Italian clones, but not loved by purists.

I've been through a couple .35's over the years, and recently I picked up a .44 Mag rifle. It's not a lever gun, but the ballistics are the same. I love it for lightweight power, and fun to shoot.

Ballistically, it's no match for the .35 Remington past 100yds.

If, like me, you wanted the ultimate 25-75yd brush rifle, it would be hard to make a call. If you think you might ever need another 75yds, the .35 might be a better bet.

You can load these in std 45 colt brass. No need to trim 454's.
