My 2 go to rifles are My Winchester Model 94 in 32 special and my Marlin Model 1895 in 45-70. If I was going to Alaska I would take my Winchester Model 71 in .348.

Thanks from DudleyDR

One of my favorite guns is the Marlin 1895 Guide gun. If you find a nice one buy it

Wow, I don't even know where to begin, so many choices of barrel length and caliber! I hate these kind of questions!

My go to are my only two, a 65 mod 88 Winchester .308 and my Browning 1886 SRC 45/70 . They both work very well and have helped fill the freezer over the years. The way or area I'm going to hunt makes my choice on which rifle goes with me that day.

I'd show my 1894SS, but I sold it for twice what I paid and bought a SA Scout.

Savage Model 99 in 358 Winchester and a early straight stocked Marlin Model 1895 in 45/70. Not much you can't handle with them.

Marlin 336C 30-30 and still waiting on #2 to come along. Pretty sure it's going to be a Marlin 45/70.

My 2 go to lever guns are my marlin cowboy 45-70 and my original Winchester 73 deluxe in 38wcf or 38-40. The 73 was bought new by great grandfather has a nice brown patina no rust ever, bore is perfect, has checkered aaa wood 24" octagons barrel with ivory tipped front sight and adjustable pronghorn rear.
Gun was handed down with a first gen Colt SAA with long flute cylinder built in 1913 chambered in 45lc with stag grips. Both guns get shot often.
Do you consider sharps lever guns?

Daytona, if you don't post the picture it didn't happen :) Seriously , How about a pic of the 1873 model Winchester.

Upload to, copy img link under photo in your library and paste in your post in thread.

Have a Marlin .450 MR with the longer barrel and pistol grip stock, kind of rare. Took a Miroku Winnie 95 in .405 Win to RSA a couple years ago, still have that. Another rare one is a Winchester 9422 Classic, only made for a couple years in the 80's. Just sold a Miroku Model 71 .348 and a Rossi 92 .44-40 Win. Keeping the Uberti 73 in .44-40 instead. All neat rifles.
