My favorite bullet in it is the 300gr Hornady XTP. I'll have to look through my logbook to see what loads I used.

Wow those are nice looking. Don't know how they passed me by the first time.

Sure are. Hey, some of those look darn familiar. Are you sure they're not my guns? Which one is your bear gun?

If either of you lived in California you would be considered to have a mental illness.

Welcome from the USA in Tx . Nice looking gun . I normally don't like black guns , but that one is sharp . I'm going to guess it is a 444 , 45-70 , 50 Alaska or something large . I love the peeps and the scope mount is something I never seen before on a Marlin . Is the stock plastic or rubber and where is the target ?

Welcome from Kansas. So are the Australian Polar Bears domesticated or what?

Thanks, I like all sorts of guns but I love leverguns!

On Friday, Feb 21, my 444P will officially be my hog gun again; that is the day I pick up my (new to me) Marlin 1895G chambered in .45-70. Finally, a bear gun. I'll post pics shortly after I pick it up. I need a new group picture anyway to show the Leupold scope that the 444P is now wearing.

Welcome from the frozen tundra of Wisconsin, WWCowboy.

As for that mount, I recognize it as an XS scout mount. Have set up a couple of my lever guns with the weaver scout version. The gun is also a 45-70 or 450 Marlin, if I'm not mistaken. Tell us more.

It is snowing outside so I can't take em out for a photo shoot, but I'll prop them up and do it inside.
The disease is called NCG symdrone!

1st left is the Uberti, two Rossi's in 38/357, then 5 Henry Big Boys in 38/3457, then a Octogan barrel 22 WMR Henry, 2 octogan Golden boys and a little round barrel Henry.

KiLo, a little fond of the 38/357 cartridges? A guy I work with has three of the Henry Big Boys; .357 Mag, .44 Mag, and .45 Colt.

I have yet to own a centerfire pistol cartridge Levergun (or a Henry of any kind but I would really like one of the round barreled .22s). I've only had one .22LR Levergun; a Browning BL-22, my nephew has it now.

Good looking group. I never get tired of looking at pictures of other shooter's guns!

If you look close, you will see the last on the right is the round barrel henry in black, cost $179.00 + Tax, close to $200.
It is a good little shooter and has a smooth action. which is typical of a Henry.
I had to do a "Steves slick job" on the Rossi octogan. It was rough!
None of the Henry's have been hard to cock, but they probably would not meet TX's idea of slick as he knows when a lever gun is easy to run.
If you lived in NC, I'd sell you that little Henry.
You will not be dissapointed if you buy one.
As to the BL-22, they are bringing over $500 in perfect condition.
Better get it back if you can. I sure liked miine that I had for 5+ years.
I traded it even to a dealer for the 22WRM Henry.
