To The Side

Marlin made the decision to make their Lever - Action Rifles eject to side with the introduction of Model 1889. This allowed Marlin to do a number of things that no one else was doing at the time. Side ejection allows Marlin to design a cartridge carrier that is dependent on cartridge length. The way cartridge carrier works on all Marlin Lever - Action Rifles is the opening of the lever allows one cartridge to exit the magazine before the carrier raises up to block the next cartridge before it can also leave the magazine. This makes the Marlin Lever gun invulnerable to variations in cartridge length, variations that might otherwise cause feeding issues. This was a big deal at the time because cartridges with improper neck tension could have bullets slip back into case bit from recoil, causing them to be too short to feed reliably. There is a lot of weight pushing against the bullets ' nose during recoil when all those cartridges are in line. Marlins cartridge carrier design is a big deal now because it lets Model 1894s chamber in. 357 Magnum fire. 38 Special cartridges with no worries. Likewise, this 1894 SBL chamber in. 44 Magnum can fire. 44 Special and. 44 Russian just as efficiently. Marlin 1894 SBL see here come chamber in. 44 Magnum and carrier allows the owner to shoot a wide range of bullet weights and lengths without worrying about feeding issues. I 've always thought Marlin Lever - Action Rifles had the best cartridge carrier for this reason. Another aspect of these Lever - Action Rifles that has always been a relevant feature is their bolt design. 1894s father was Model 1893, and it had a square bolt and a long enough receiver to accommodate the most popular rifle cartridges at the time. It is important to remember that 1894 is nothing more than a smaller version of 93, trend that was popular at the time. Both Marlin and Winchester designed the popular Lever - Action Rifles chamber in Rifle cartridges first. Winchester was developed in 1886 while Marlin was developed in 1893. When it come to chambering Lever Actions in pistol cartridges, both manufacturers shrunk down earlier rifles to fit short cartridges and labelled them 1892 and 1894, respectively. Some will argue that Marlins 1894 has more in common with the Marlins ' first pistol - caliber Lever gun, 1889, but I disagree. 1894 retains one of 1893's best features and one that was missing in 1889: two - piece firing pin. 1894 SBL come chamber in. 44 Magnum, which has chamber pressure of 36 000 pounds per square inch. Combine that high pressure with the size of. 44 Magnums case head, and combination yields tremendous bolt thrust. Bolt thrust is the amount of force cartridge put on Rifles breech or bolt face.

Current Situation

In recent decades, lever Action Rifles have appeared to be on the ropes. We lost some great designs, including Savage 99 and Winchester 88, and sales of traditional lever guns were slipping. In the early 2000s, Winchester's best - selling 1894 saw its first break in production. More recently, Marlin was out of production for several years. But, baby, look at the level of actions now. Marlin is back and selling new variations of their 94 336, and 95 lever actions as fast as they can make them. Winchester is also back, and faithful reintroductions of their classic lever gun consistently sell out. Although production runs are huge, Brownings sleek, fast BLR offers modern alternatives. Mossberg reports steady sales of their 464. 30 - 30. Henry, very much lever - Action company, is doing well. And there are other alternatives, including Big Horn Armorys New Model 89 and some excellent off - shore reproductions of classic designs. Right now, lever action is once again hot. And in my opinion, it deserves to be.

Modern .44 Magnum Firearms

There are certain considerations to be made when choosing to carry a revolver - caliber rifle as opposed to carrying a revolver when hunting. The first consideration is price. On average, good Lever - Action revolver - caliber rifle will cost anywhere from $800 up to $2 000 depending on brand, make and model. Depending on your budget, there are lot of options to choose from. Some of the more popular ones are Henry Repeating Arms Big Boy rifles that can be chambered for assortment of revolver Cartridges 327 Federal Magnum all way up to fat. 45 Long Colt. Big Boy chamber for The. 44 Magnum Rifle, which can also shoot weaker. 44 Special rounds for target practice, cost only $900 brand new. The most expensive option that I 've seen so far is the Navy Arms Winchester 1892 Lever Action Rifle that goes for $2 132. 90 on Cheaper Than Dirt. It improved version of the famous Winchester Model 1886 designed by John Moses Browning from days of yore. There are more affordable rifle options like Rossi Circuit Judge in. 44 Magnum, SA - DA revolver carbine. But it negates one huge advantage rifles have over revolvers because they use the same 6 - round chamber and the same forcing cone found in revolvers. Then there are semi - auto. 44 Magnum rifles Ruger used to manufacture, most recent model being the Ruger Deerfield carbine, but production was stopped in 2006 because of its high price, not to mention it only hold 4 rounds in its rotary magazine. The next consideration is size. Being inherently longer by virtue of its stock and barrel length, rifle wo be as easy to point, at at at aim and shoot as a revolver. Itll also be relatively more cumbersome than revolver for animal defense scenarios where charging bear is only 10 yards away. Another consideration is the length of time it takes to reload. Revolvers can use speedloaders while most. 44 Magnum Lever - Action rifles can fit up to 10 rounds in their tubular magazine. Not that it would matter too much when hunting where often, assuming youre facing animals broadside, single hardcast semi - wadcutter 240 - grain bullet in lungs will be more than enough for quick humane kill. But considering the bear defense scenario above, if you have to face two charging bears from 10 yards away and you unfortunately dont have enough ammo in your rifle tubular mag to take them down, youll be at a real disadvantage if you have to reload one round at a time if youre carrying Magnum revolver with speedloaders this shouldnt be too Big of issue. Lastly, there is rifles heavier weight to consider, although depending on where you stand in argument, this can be considered advantage rifles have over handguns. Since rifles are heavier, youll have to carry one over your shoulder with a sling, and even then youll feel sore after hours of carrying it that way.
