Love the 92's and 94's. But it's all about nostalgia. The hard part would be the missed shots! Opportunities to dump a wolf or coyote are not to be squandered!

Find a Savage 99 in 284 and you'd have a heck of a nice saddle rifle. I find myself taking my daughters Ruger compact in 243 a lot.

Just set you up a trim hunting rig. No need to go primitive to get comfortable on horse back.

My 200$ used Marlin 30A will stay inside a 10" circle at 200 yards with factory ammo off hand. I dont mind bashing it around and factory ammo is cheep! Hope that helps.

What scabord do you use I dont have one but it sounds cool.

Check out that winchester 94 in 375 win. that is in the classifieds. I would snatch that thing up myself but my dad has one ill inherit someday anyway. That thing packs a mean little punch out to a couple hundred yards. Would probably put some second thoughts into a grizz too, at least make him walk funny....

Well, this is bad.................. it was on my mind when I went to bed and I woke up with an idea.

I am thinking of a short bareled (24") 7mm with 168 Bergers , no brake (to keep it short) composit stock, low profile scope like a small NXS like a 2.5~10x32 with a ballistic turret out to 700 yd. Mounted to a bedded steel rail with 3 rings. That will fit in a scabbard made for a scoped rifle.....

Big n Green are you in???

Sounds like a little Tikka is in order! or as much as I hate to say it a model 70 super shadow, they are rough but thay shoot good and you dont have to feel bad when you scuff them up.

I am thinking of a build from scraps I have around. Might be fun, you know a "special purpose" build on a budget.
