:-D The 45-70 pistol that I'm attemping to aquire is called a magnum research-"BFR"(appropriate)!It is all stainless -weighs about 4.++lbs,has a 5 shot cylinder,long barrel-10.5"(guess).Single action. No real need except ones own ego!I don't think that any of the 50 cal magnums(pistols)are equal in ballistics! Shocked

When I took my Ohio concealed carry course, I rented one of those and put a box of cartridges through it while others were plinking away with 22 LR handguns. I didn't think it was that bad to shoot. It is NOT the equal to Smith & Wesson's 460 and 500 magnums which I've shot quite a bit.

Here we go, Marlin 1894 Cowboy in .45 Colt.



Replaced the rear sight with this buckhorn/ladder sight. The buckhorn makes a pretty good "ghost ring" for fast, up close shooting.


The ladder sight worked well out at 400 yards.


The German silver front blade stands out a bit better for me.

My vote goes with Pumpkinslinger. Even standard loads in a rifle will average 300-500 fps faster than when in a revolver. With the .45 Colt using the heavier range of bullets you have the equivalent of a 45/70 "lite". It is safer to up the load with a .45 than with a .44 Magnum since as caliber increases, pressure decreases with comparable bullet weights. The Marlins are built for stout and are capable of handling any pressures safe in a Ruger.

Hodgdon lists loads for the .444 Marlin and 30/30 Winchester in the 40,000 - 42,000 cup range. The hottest loads they list for "Ruger and T/C" firearms only just break 30,000 cup or so. Lots of room for safety.

All I can say is SWEET, that is after wiping off the drool from my keyboard. Those sights are great looking. Where did you get them?

every time that gun went off you could tell that he was fighting to keep from crying out.

It builds character. Very Happy
