Re: 1892 carbine vs short rifle

I like the short barreled carbines for lever guns but have both in .45 LC, a Henry carbine and a 20 inch 1892 Rossi. The Rossi is lighter so gets carried more both have red dots on them for evening and night problems.

Re: 1894C Siblings

GREAT finds and rifles. I don't have one in .357 but carry the .44 MAG often. I have a red dot on it as even with my latest pair of glasses I can't see the sights well enough, as I used to

A bit beat up from carrying but works well even after dark.
