MT - the 22 pistola is still scheduled for the end of September (Uncle Sam check). There is a possibility that I will be able to use the funds from selling one of my 45 colts for the rifle purchase. The money I budgeted (that which I used to buy the Bisley) for a house project was over estimated so I may just have to use said dinero for a rifle! The Mrs. doesn't think my logic holds water but I ain't dying of thirst neither :biggrin:
The only problem I see with the Marlin is the cost. As far as I know, the only 45 colt offering from Marlin is in the 1894 or 1895 Cowboy which is above and beyond my means (躔ish). I sure wish Marlin sold a 20" 336 in 45 Colt...no brainer...just the way I like it :wink:
There is a big gun show coming next month that will provide the best choice and opportunity to find a 45 colt lever gun. I'll keep my eyes peeled.
MT - prices are dependent upon availability. Gun shops don't seem to carry the 45 colt in this area (they're all more than happy to order it for me though...from 躔 to 軆). I saw one at a small gun show two weekends ago for 躣.
It seems the further south I look, the better pricing becomes. There's an outfit offering a new 1894 CB 45 colt for 蹎 located 2 1/2 hours south of me. I may need to reach the CA border to hit the 踰 mark :biggrin: I'm in no hurry - I'll keep watching the gun shows and making phone calls.
PS: I love shooting the Bisley! The only recoil that I'm feeling is with 300 gr. loads. The back of the trigger guard pounds my middle finger. I can lower my hand a bit to avoid the bite but then the grip (gripe) just doesn't feel right.
