How badly would you want one of these? I just saw one at a pawn shop. Pretty rare gun, I'd say.

Not all that rare but I do want one, at least I've been thinking about one in a .44. They are nice, light, and very handy in the wooly bugger country that is the ozarks.

Default just my 2 cents

Got one about 12 years ago at gun show in Tulsa. At the time I paid about 275 for it new in box with papers. Without a doubt it is my favorite rifle that I have, at least up to the boating accident. Paired it with a Ruger security six with 6" barrel. Fun at the least. That Winchester has spoiled the day for a few of the yotes in our area.

I missed out on one in 45 Colt. Didn't have the cash in my pocket, and when I got back it was gone.

If the price is right, GET IT!! Especially if it doesn't have the annoying cross-bolt receiver safety.

I had my eye on a 16" saddle ring carbine Trapper .44 Mag and ended up getting a Ruger 77/44 instead.. If anyone on here has a Winchester .44 saddle ring Trapper in .44 Mag that wants to trade for a Ruger 77/44 stainless, shoot me a PM

I have a 94 Carbine in an elephant caliber (.375) and the recoil is brutal , now one in .357 mag would be a lot more controllable in that platform.

Doc - the .375 Winchester is ballistically similar to the .35 Remington:
200gr-250gr bullet @ 1900-2200 FPS. That's a medium game cartridge

For some reason on the little 94 carbine that round is just brutal on recoil, so it kicks like an elephant
I've let several people shoot it, they won't usually fire more than 1 rd.

Doc - you should try shooting a .450 Marlin, .444 Marlin or .45/70 from one of those Guide Guns.. Recoil is downright brutal!


I so badly want another saddle ring Trapper carbine!

They can't be that rare. I bought one two years back for not much money at all. 250 if I remember rightly.

i have been looking for either a marlin or winchester in 357 mag for a while as a companion to my 357 mag revolver figure would be good to have a rifle and backup that eat the same food

just out of curiosity whats the askin price?

That depends on a number of variables. The last time i shot a 92 browning marked carbine in .44 I found it quite enjoyable. Of course I had a 200 pound frame at the time and had years shooting firearms with much worse recoil. I once had a ruger number 3 carbine in 45/70. I still hold that little carbine responsible for damage to my neck vertibra. {ouch}

I had one of those almost 30 years ago. It was an extremely good quality model 94; high polish blue, strengthend reciever, extra good quality wood. I never understood why it was completely overlooked as a hunting gun/caliber combination. As for recoil again, that's all relative.

Sweeeet! Sounds like you had an XTR version with the nice wood and checkering.. I forgot about those Browning '92s! Thanks for the memories

I think the Winchester '94 Black Shadows were pretty cool with the black synthetic stocks. Use the cheap-ass plastic synthetic stocks for hunting and plinking to preserve the your wood.

I have one in 44. Wonderful little carbine. It is light, slim and compact, making it the easiest long arm I own to carry. It is pretty accurate too with peep sights or a scope.

They are nice - saw on here for 700 dollars recently in a store. Little high but it eventually sold.

A firearm is a tool for me. If the gun doesn't come with the pre-64 premium, then go for it.

No sense spending more for a gun you're going to use. With use will come handling wear and then reduced resale value.

Keep in mind, some 357 lever guns do not like to cycle 38 specials. It's a gamble every time you buy, regardless of make or model. There is some debate whether you should deer hunt with a .357 lever gun. However, there is no debate with the 45 long colt lever gun I have.

I have a BLR in .450 marlin, I handload it way down to make it practicable. 1800fps and 300gr HP make it a bit nicer to shoulder. You still don't want to shoot more than 20-30 shots through it a session. IF the gun has too much recoil to practice enough with it, it's time to sell it.
