Tom, here a some better pics of my Taylor's n Co Smoke Wagon. Model # REV/4108DE.
Like I mentioned the DE at the end of the model numbers are they ones that the T n C smiths did some upgrading on.

Look for the Deluxe models from Taylor's, those are the models that have been adjusted by their smiths..
When I bought my 3 Taylor's my LGS's distributor had them in stock so none of them have the custom tuning. Taylor's gunsmiths hand polish the action and upgrade to custom springs. That additional tuning usually costs between $100 and $150 extra.

A couple years ago it was $145.00 to get the DE.

You are closer than I was. The website lists the standard price and the DE price so I did some quick math in my head. I used the calculator on four models and they came out to $146.25.

I brought home the Colt today but the Henry lever action rifle and carbine have not come in. So, I ordered the other Smoke Wagon in .357 magnum that I need to complete a set.





I was talking to the manager today about stag grips for the Colts. He said he had good luck with Hillbilly Grips. I've seen some of their grips online and they do very good work. I haven't decided yet if I'm going to do it.

Keep an eye out here. Sometimes some really impressive pieces show up. I've bought a bunch of stuff from him.

https://www.boonetrading.com/collect...y-pistol-grips

The "American Ivory" faux-ivory grips are actually REALLY nice, and most wouldn't know they're fakes. Much much much better than normal faux ivory. None listed for that Colt right now, but inventory changes somewhat often.

Yes, those are quality grips. I will check back to see if they post some SAA grips before I make a decision.

The simulated American ivory looks very good and are a possibility. It's interesting, just last night I was reading about General Patton's Colt SAA and S&W .357 magnum with ivory grips.

I agree, that does look very nice. They did a good job on the CCH.
I'm patiently waiting for my Henrys with the CCH but nothing yet.

I started DROS on a Henry CCH 45-70 last week but I forgot to get pictures. The CCH looks nice but it doesnít have the same polish that the Winchester has.

Iíll post detailed pics when I pick it up next week.

Looking forward to more pics. Everyone likes pics of other peoples guns.
I'm anxious for my Henrys to come in so I can see what the CCH looks like.
I'm considering a .41 magnum for my next lever action. The Big Boy Classic and Big Boy steel frame (no CCH) have that caliber in rifle and carbine.

From my brief time handling my Henry while filling out the paperwork, I’m inclined to say it’s the best value between my Marlin 1894 and this Winchester I just started DROS on.

The Winchester is beautiful, but I’m not sure yet if it’s $1000 more beautiful.

The Winchester is also a competition model with short stroke action. The lever only moves about 30-45*

It is hard to beat a Henry and that's for sure. Even if you set price aside and just consider the quality.
I like Uberti SAs and levers but their levers can be $500 to $600 more than a Henry for similar models but your not getting 35% to 40% more quality.

I have the Uberti copy in .45 Colt, with custom maple grips. I'm looking for another SAA/SAA clone, but this time I want one in either 38-40 or 44-40. I posted pics of mine a while ago, but I'm hoping you folks won't mind if I post it again. :

I looked long and hard at the Ubertis and the only reason I ended up with the Winchester was impulse and wanting the name. I would still love to own an uberti. It would have been nice to be able to see both in person before purchasing but unfortunately that’s not an option.

I just made the pictures bigger for viewing pleasure.

I like pictures so post whatever you like.
I have two Gunfighters in .45 Colt and a Smoke Wagon in .357 magnum but I always want something else. I mentioned that I ordered a second Smoke Wagon. The problem is that Taylor's and Uberti have too many choices on their websites. I haven't even looked into Cimarron Firearms yet but I've read that they import Uberti and Pietta.

I can’t believe Marlin SBL’s are going for $2000+ on GB.

I don’t remember how much they were new but I’m pretty sure they were nowhere near $2k

Yes, it would be nice to see and hold a lever action before buying but they're hardly ever in the stores. I've pretty much accepted the fact that levers and SAs will be special order only.
I like the Uberti SA revolvers that I have and I'm sure I would like their lever actions. I don't want my lever action collection to be all Henrys. I want a variety.
I hear what you're saying about Winchesters. The name is connected to the wild west just as much as Colt. I bought my Model 94 back in the late 90s when they came out with the Trails End in .45 Colt. I recently talked to the manager at my LGS about ordering Winchesters but he said they haven't had very good luck doing that.

I saw an Uberti Cattleman at a bass pro and it was beautiful.

This damn lever fever has got me. Now Iíve got Big Bore Ď94 375 Winchesters on my watchlist!

I'm going to have to start looking for some variety in my SAs. As much as I like blued finish with CCH frame I have to look for other styles. There's an engraved Cattleman with a white-heat treated finish that looks like nickel plating. The Ranch Hand is blued with CCH but it has a brass grip frame and trigger guard. The Outlaw Legacy is nickel plated and engraved. These special models are probably hard to find but I may get lucky over time.
The situation is the same with the lever actions but I do have some limits. I always prefer wood stocks and they have to be straight, not with the pistol grip. I like CCH but if I get another steel frame Henry it may be regular blued finish. The Big Boy Steel in .41 magnum sounds like a good choice to me. I could follow that with the Big Boy Steel Side Gate in .44 magnum.

I think I found my next lever action so the .41 magnum will have to wait.
Winchester Model 1892 Large Loop Carbine in .45 Colt. It also comes in .357 mag, .44 Rem mag and .44-40 Win.

I made the mistake of looking around on the Skinner sights website, while trying to figure out what I wanted to put on either my old 70's Marlin in 30WCF or my 20" 45 Colt 1894 Cowboy. I decided to go with Black Gold on the octagon barrel, and I'll swap the Williams from the 45 to the 3030. Or I may go with a red dot on it, since it's a hunting rifle.

But back to the topic at hand, those Skinner color case hardened sights are sexxxyyyyy, and now I'm on the lookout for a near-perfect case hardened gun to put them on. I just can't decide if a CCH Skinner sight would look good on my 24" blued 1894 Cowboy in 45 Colt, if I need a whole new rifle. The 24", with an Alaskan sight would be pretty rad...

Great guns, men! Good grief.

Outstanding!

I decided to go with Black Gold on the octagon barrel, and I'll swap the Williams from the 45 to the 3030. Or I may go with a red dot on it, since it's a hunting rifle.

But back to the topic at hand, those Skinner color case hardened sights are sexxxyyyyy, and now I'm on the lookout for a near-perfect case hardened gun to put them on. I just can't decide if a CCH Skinner sight would look good on my 24" blued 1894 Cowboy in 45 Colt, if I need a whole new rifle. The 24", with an Alaskan sight would be pretty rad...
I think a blued rifle would look better with blued sights and CCH sights should definitely go on a CCH rifle. Skinner and Henry seem to go together well so a whole new rifle could be a Big Boy Color Case Hardened Side Gate in 357 mag, 44 mag or 45 Colt.

^ That's similar to what I'm thinking, especially since until a couple weeks ago I never have owned a Henry, and still don't own a centerfire one. (I'll be picking up the Golden Boy I got recently on Monday afternoon. )

Thanks for the pointer, I did not know of Tombstone Tactical. Yeah - I know I can probably order one, but I'm looking to find one locally at a gun show..... Cash and carry, no tax, that sort of thing. Plus, I prefer to "taste, touch, and feel" guns before I buy, if possible.

So far, I've only seen one in 44-40, and that was on a table at a gun show in upstate WA when I was traveling for work.

That's good, it's always fun picking up a new gun. I just picked up a SA revolver earlier this week.
I only have one Henry right now and it's a brass frame Big Boy Classic in .45 Colt. I have a couple on order but with the way things are right now I don't know when they will arrive.

It also looks like the wood fit where the grip meets the receiver is actually better than on my Winchester. It looks pretty flush on your Uberti and on my Winchester the wood is noticeably proud where it meets the receiver.
