    Have they ever explained how and when guns gained personal awareness?

    Is that when they all started jumping in folks hands to kill people?

    Not that it really matters, as my guns are very well trained and mannered. They won't even jump on you like the dog does, but, they still like people....

    Not much experience with lever guns here. I recently had the opportunity to shoot a '94 in 30-30 and found it a revelation.

    Never been much a fan of 19th century firearms, but I totally get love for the 94. It is light, fast, and reasonably quickly reloadable. It is sleek and beautiful to boot.
    The loading gate and cartridge shape make fast reloading a skill to be acquired, and the grip squeeze lever trigger lockout is something to get used to.

    However, I definitely see the reason for the love of this rifle/cartridge combo.

    Back in the black powder and fulminate days they were still sorting things out and those arms are only interesting from a historical perspective, and I recognize that is the thesis of this thread.

    The '94 was only two JMBrowning innovations away from being a fully modern weapon, and is beloved in art and hunting lore.

    How many people know that the Model 1886 Winchester and the Model 1892 Winchester and the Model 94 Winchester are essential the same design action? Well they are.

    I'm looking at possibly getting a couple Uberti reproduction Winchester lever guns. Really like my Uberti 1873 Cattlemen blackpowder revolver.

    I have a Uberti/Cimarron 1873 Winchester. So far so good. The only thing I did was replace, well actually the gunsmith did, all the screws with harden screws. Other wise works like a charm. I got .45 Colt and it works but I'm not so sure I might not go with a 44-40 instead especially if I was experienced reloader and going to use black powder. The 44-40 seals better because the round is a bottle neck cartridge with black powder as was intended.
