He has to make his own ammo.
i just bought 100 rounds last weekend and the store had another 1,000 setting on the shelf
Just FYI, today is John Moses Browning’s birthday. His products are still being made as a testament to how great his designs were.
I build 1911s daily. Great design.
For DECADES I’ve owned a Winchester model 1894 Trapper-short barrel that shoots 44 magnum rounds.
Talk about DEPENDABLE! Not a single problem or malfunction after decades of shooting. The short barrel makes it easy to carry in thick woods and brush.
Wouldn’t trade it for ANYTHING!
Had an old .44 short barreled lever action Browning bush rifle. No recoil, smooth action, fun to shoot. Unfortunately it was stolen and I was never able to get a replacement.
Shoot a 41 mag out of your 410
Shove a 2×4 up your keister. Make sure it has splinters. Lots and lots of splinters.
410 is the same as a 45 cal. DUMBASS
Yep – that cartridge is getting into the chamber and out the tube for sure.
Nice series CFP (not sure about the Taurus selection, hopefully the have fixed their QC issues). Keep them coming. Everyone should be exercising their 2A rights. Don’t be a victim!
.45 Colt can be hand loaded to .44 Mag levels for your lever gun.
One of my lever guns is an Evil Roy 1873 Winchester Short Rifle (replica) from Cimarron/Uberti. A beauty. Short-stroked and very fast shooting. I too prefer .45 Colt, esp. for rolling your own. What readers may not know is that the long throw on a standard lever action deer rifle is way too long (as in, wasted) on a rifle that shoots pistol-caliber cartridges. So my #1 question would be, “Can it be short-stroked?”
Isn’t there a risk of the bullet bouncing off hard item and hitting him?
Frangible ammo disintegrates after striking target.
No — go to his YouTube channel and watch his videos with regards to shooting steel. The man knows what he is doing.
Ol Hiccup 45. Blow hard full of hot air and BS.
Everyone is entitled to their own dumbass opinion, no matter how dumb or how ass it is. You have made it abundantly clear that you are not a fan of this particular YouTube personality. That’s your dumbass opinion and you are entitled to it.
Says Tito the anonymous nobody who is doing nothing but running his yap.
Thanks. My 1st Amendment right. Have a good one fellows.
Though he and I disagree on many guns, he is entertaining and I enjoy watching his vids.
I’m a lever action fanatic myself. Much more of a Winchester fan than Marlin. I also like the Henrys and Browning’s. But Ill take the Winchesters over all the rest. I enjoy Hickock 45 video’s. Thanks for posting them
I have a JM stamped 1894P in 44 Mag but I’m going to get one of these new Ruger made CB LTDs. The Marlin design is superior to all others IMHO. So glad that Remington is DOA. The Remlins were a disappointment.
Browning 1886 Anniversary
Fit and finish on these Browning rifles is incredible. Each one is a piece of art.
Anyone see that staged shooting at a dance hall?? Totally fake, they have got to do better, the pictures of body’s laying on the floor are from a 2002 flip phone camera, don’t know about you but my cheap phone takes 25 mega pixel images.
When u text an image, it’s resolution is decreased drastically.
No such thing as a REM 70 in 30-30 or a Marlin Lever in .308.
Correction There was a lever ..308 inch Marlin Express…
Yeah … the 308 MX and 338 MX were real things and are collectables these days.
I don’t post many comments, but I’m here every day, several times a day; and also, a fan of Hickock45. I like these Hickock45 links! Thank-you!!!
Marlins are fine weapons. But Henry’s are just a little finer.
I bought an old 45-70 breech load and love it! Its just simply fun to shoot and will take a bear down in one shot.
The movie Wind River does a good job representing that round taking out bad guys.
That was one intense ending of a movie!!
YOU WILL BE NEEDING A 44 MAG FOR TAKING OUT DEMOCRATS
As a breech-loader (single shot), it sure does need to take down that bear with one shot! I’ve got two in .45-70, a Ruger No. 1 for serious heavy loads and a still-shoots Springfield Trapdoor for Cowboy Action loads that are pretty much authentic for the time. Easy to reload, being straight-wall cases.
keep up these posts, love ‘em
Thanks for posting these Kane – that’s the kind of music I prefer.
If you dont already own an 1894- correct it. No they arnt getting any cheaper but people think nothing of spending $1000 on a phone that will be obsolete in a few months.That 1894 will last you a lifetime.
My Dad is a collector. His are 9.5/10 to 10/10 condition wise. He got me one for Christmas a few years ago. I wanted one I could use instead of display. 1894 30-30 Condition 8.5/10. Shoot it regularly. Accurate and fun. Never had a malfunction to date. Beautiful piece of history. Hmmm…I might have to pull it out and shoot a few rounds out back today if the sun comes out.
Agreed, I have a few. I love my Winchester 94-22 most. Just a great plinking rifle.
1,000 yeas for the Hickock 45 videos!
Let’s bring a bunch of them to D.C.
I met Bill several years ago. You can’t tell in the videos, but dude is a giant. One of the tallest people I’ve ever met. His son is the cameraman & he’s about the same height.
Bill? Try again, his name is not Bill.
That marlin will probably take down a bigfoot
I have the Winchester 30 30 lever action. Just like new, never fired. The 44 is a very big gun. I limit my self to .45s and .357s
They’re big enough, hopefully. My friend uses a 357 with bird shot for rattlesnakes.
Not that big out of a rifle.
I like 1894. Marlins. Winchesters too. The original AR.
That stoopit CIA Vice article about el Chapo shows a photo captioned “high caliber bullet stuck in a fence” and it’s an entire unspent round that someone stuck in bullet hole. Lol. Please.
I also like the pistol description in the Monterey Park shooter article: “magazine fed semi-automatic assault pistol”…..good lord they are really trying hard to scarify any firearm….except maybe an old muzzle loader.
I saw that. Of course, it was an AP writer (translation: 24 year-old female “journalism” major)
Love listening to words of wisdom, delivered in monologue from long and deep experience.
I have the Marlin 444SS
Its .44 Magnum on steroids.
The rounds for your 444 look like dild0s, they’re so big.
The random gun stories just make CFP even better. Keep it up!!
I really want the new Marlin (Ruger made) 1895 45-70, it’s a thing of beauty.
Ruger will do good things with the company. Quality will finally return.
I have a 1895 marlin guides gun in stainless with jm stamp it’s awesome
I don’t the the Guide Gun comes in any other caliber than 45-70.
The only thing bad about a 45-70 is they kick like a mule
I love the .44 mag round. I have three pistols and a Marlin lever action in that caliber. Great deer and hog gun.
I also have a couple44’s…that 44MAG Mares Leg kicks like an irritated mule with 44 plus handloads. It’s really tuff on me.
Those mares legs are sweet though.
just bought a winchester 44 frontier army last week
The “cowboy” thing never did much for me. That said, the sound of that action alone has my interest peaked. Like others already, thank you CFP for a nice distraction.
Love the gun articles. Nice job.
I regularly check CFP for news and opinion stories. CFP’s recent inclusion of Hickok 45 videos is icing on a sweet cake.
I am an old fart, with weapons training in the Army, LE, and civilian courses. I like guns. I own guns. I carry guns. I shoot guns. And, I work on guns. I like Hickok 45, and I like to hear him talk about guns and love to watch him shoot guns.
Yes, while I always can go to Hickok’s website and watch any of his posted videos, it always is a nice break from the current depressing news cycle to spend a few minutes listening to and watching Hickok 45 in action.
Thank you, CFP.
Gun awareness is SWEET! My wife learned about her Kimber Micro 9 on the CFP site and promptly went and bought one (The BelAire in tiffany blue and chrome- very Barbie) then went with a bunch of hens and took the CCP class and now the ol’ gal is packin’ heat 🙂 Now I call her by her nickname: Yes Ma’am.
The Kimber micros are sooo sweet.
I thought ccp is bad
so you will not be straying any more
Whenever Hickok is around, no 2L soda bottle is safe.
Good ol’ Hickok 45.
Wait…. it’s a Marlin 1894 but it’s a .45 Colt that he says would be the last lever gun he’d ever part with. Smart man, he picked the correct caliber between the .45 Colt and the .44 Mag. 🙂
Ahhh… okay, he later picked the .44 Mag. Well, there’s no accounting for taste. (Note to those who don’t read sarcasm: Both are great cartridges and both are terrific in the 1894!)
Did you see those bullets going in the side feed? It’s literally a door to another dimension.
I dig it
I have read that some American soldiers in Vietnam had their lever action rifles sent to them to use instead of their M16’s. .30-30’s I suppose, which are approximately the size and power of an AK 7.62×39 round.
Unlikely Ron, but a pleasant story. .30-30 rounds are not part of a standard Gov’t load-out, so they’d be unlikely to get the ammo. Additionally, though I much prefer the art of a lever gun, the sad truth is an M-16 is a far superior tool in modern combat.
