I really like Winchester's Legendary '94 and THINK I would like one in .45LC, but am concerned a wee bit about the action length of the '94 vs the o.a.l. of the .45LC. Should I worry? Would I be better served by a '92, perhaps?
I have a Win 94 Legacy in 45 Colt. The action will handle anything I have tried so far. I shoot mostly 325 gr Lyman gas checked bullets out of it. With most bullet designs you will run out of throat room before they won't feed in the action. The throats are relatively short at the end of the chamber.
I have a Win 94 .45 LC. It is kind of picky about OAL and certain bullet types. It likes and feeds certain brass better as well. Mine hates Rem Brass gaurenteed jam!! But when everything is smooth it a fine rifle!! :
I have a Win 94 Trapper in .45 Colt. In the almost 20 years I have been shooting it I haven't found anything it will jam with.
I've shot just about every type and brand of case, including old balloon head blackpowder cases with no problems.
I have shot loads with the short 200 gr SWC's up to the 268 gr Keith SWC's and this little trapper doesn't care. I guess it's an individual gun thing, but mine is most agreeable as to feeding and shooting different brass and bullets.
