LOVE the coin inlays and tackwork on both..........I do tackwork on my Flintlocks to simulate Native American historical firearms.
NICE WORK !!

I've been on a rimfire kick this summer, so I'd have to say my favorite now is my Browning BL-22. I've put a couple bricks through it lately.

The Rossi Trapper in .45 Colt is also fun, I recently took it on a week long camping trip to southwest Arizona. I kept it loaded with 250 grain Speer Deep Curl hollow points.

My favorite is my 1894 marlin cowboy ltd in .45lc. My prettiest is a 1866 44-40 Cimarron brass frame musket. My 1876 NWMP carbine 45-60 has the most thump.

You can mitigate the recoil from the 45-70 by reloading, if you are set up to do so. As an example, the 300 Remington JHP is a good bullet to cut recoil and 5744 is a case filler powder that is regularly used to duplicate BP type loads with smokeless. Of course Unique has been a favorite for light loads with cast bullets for decades. The secret to the 45-70 is not velocity, you just let the bullet weight do all the work and smile.

Well, I only have one... but back when I had three, this one was still my favorite...

It's a Rossi 92 in .44 magnum. Started out as a 24" rifle, but it's only got a 17" barrel now. I wanted something that nobody made, a carbine, but with the heavy octagon barrel. Only way to get one was to buy the rifle version, and have it cut down. So I did. Then I went to outfitting it as a defensive weapon.

It has a large loop from Steve's Gunz. It also has his peep sight that replaces the stupid bolt safety. The factory rear sight was removed, and the dovetail filled. Then the top flat of the barrel was drilled and tapped, and a piece of leftover picatinny secured to it. On it is a Sig Romeo 5 red dot, and a Stream light in a Thorntail mount. The pretty to look at, but painful to shoot curved metal butt plate was removed, and the butt straightened for a recoil pad, then a leather ammo cuff added... I would like to soften the edges of the loading gate some, and maybe put a lighter spring there, but everything else is smooth as can be. Still holds 10+1, and is very accurate, and fast. It's the single most fun rifle I own to shoot. This little combat cowboy carbine can travel with me to states where my AR cannot...

Favorite?
Pre-remlin Marlin 336 in .30-30.

The one I would like to get more time on?
Marlin 1895 stainless Guide Gun in .45-70.
Haven't got enough miles on it yet to really claim it as a fave.
Its a Remington and went back to the factory shortly after purchase (lever was jamming). Seems fine now but I won't trust it 100% until I get some more rounds through it.

The one I always wanted but will probably never get because a. its expensive, b. money over here is tight, and c. I'm no spring chicken?
Easy - Winchester '73 in .44-40 (along with a Colt Peacemaker in .44-40 to keep it company).

I love my stainless BLR Takedown in 308. Light and handy, as Accra’s a bolt action and fun to shoot.
