For you guys with the side loaders, how do you deal with mashing your thumb to load the round? I just recently got an m94 and it sucks loading a round in it.

Not sure on the 94 but I would think its the same as the 92. You can use a lighter gate spring or maybe cut into it to make it a little more forgiving. Is it the gate or pushing the rounds up the mag tube that's harder?

Otteray, nice collection, Sir....That little 1892 is sweet.

Vin63, how is that new 73 treating you? Those are so nice...

Golfish, thanks, it is fun to reload the cartridges with a heel based cast bullet and up to a couple grains of Bullseye. The lightest loads are whisper quiet. Accuracy falls apart past 25 yards, lol.

I'm not a reloader (yet) but I can sure understand why you would have to, and want to reload for those rifles. I'm a big fan of the rifle over the carbine.

Do you shoot all of them?

I bet that 22LR is accurate ?

With close to a ton of scrap lead to cast with for free, you bet I reload them all, except the .22s, of course.
These old .22s are accurate and have the heft and feel of the larger calibers.

Both are early 80s ranger 94's chambered in 30-30.
Top one has only a box of 20 rounds through it by me.
Bottom I recently transformed into my deer rifle. Leupold m8-20 ier scout scope from 60s. And Leopold Detacho scout base and rings. With Wilson magazine tube sling clamp.
Both leather covers I made, bottom one is a cheek riser version for the scope.

Default Here's my Rossi r92





Took it to ASR today for some metal plate plinking. It's chambered in .357/.38 special, 16" barrel, with large loop lever. I added a bit of leather lacing to the lever. Doesn't really add that much padding, but since it took a bit of effort to put on, I'm too lazy to remove it, haha!

It's a very fun gun! I let a friend fire it a few months ago and he put one in jail later that day! We took his carbine to the range and he was hitting the plates right out of the box.

MY 1974 Winchester 94 in 30-30.



My pre Rem Marlin 1894C in 38/357. This would be my survival gun, if I had to narrow it down to just one.

I use my index finger - first to compress the gate spring with the cartridge, and then push it passed the gate into the tube from the rear of the cartridge.

It's like butter. It will be a great rifle in .44 mag and larger revolver calibers when they make it available. I hopefully plan to use it in a couple of precision rifle (revolver caliber) events in CAS soon.

I like to hold the rifle by the receiver in my left hand, with my thumb near the loading gate. Grab a cartridge with my right hand and push it half-way in, but not all the way. Then use my left thumb to hold the cartridge in while I grab another with my right hand. Use the second bullet to push the first one in, and stop halfway. Repeat till full, the last cartridge is the only one that you have to push in all the way to where the gate can pinch you.

My rifle holds 9, I normally use the tip of a 10th round to push the 9th in instead of my finger. no more pinching.

That's how I do it too, I'll dig out the 94 and post a pic.

I just push the round in most of the way and follow it with the next. On the last round, I hold the gate with my thumb's first knuckle as it gets to that point. Once the last round seats in I pull my thumb back and let the gate close. Even so, every once in a while she bites me.

Top is 22 Marlin 39a w 24" octagon barrel added williams target peep rear sight and globe front sight - a great shooter and worth 600% what I paid for it in 1975. Tube holds 18 LR or 24 shorts.

Bottom is 357/38 Marlin 1894 with williams rear peep sight. Hand load 125g jacketed bullet with H110 powder and get 2000 fps that will punch through 3/16" steel at 100 yards.
