Very true. Like I said above, I don;t think there is anything right now that my Whelan can't do at least as well, but there is just something about a 45-70 lever gun that seems to move the soul.

I believe a chap named Newton, covered that some time back, the action and reaction thing.

Big bullets..big recoil.

Well, I took the Rossi to the range Saturday. Put about 50 rounds through it on an indoor range out to 25 yards. Accurate enough for anything I would ever need it for and so much fun, it put a smile on my face every time I pulled the trigger or worked the lever.

Yes, yes, it's the wife's...

Well, it has some flaws - the stock finish is no good at all. It's something I can fix with some fine grit and a small jar of satin stain. Still, it shows poor craftsmanship, and I feel a bit disappointed, but just a bit.

On the other hand, it seems more accurate than the Marlin 1894 I got just a year or so ago in 44 Mag.
