I have a Model 94 in .44 mag that I bought like 3 yrs ago and have yet to shoot it. Anyone else have one in this caliber,do you like it?,what have you used it for? I got a really good deal on it and couldn't pass it up.

I have a 94 Trapper that was excellent when I worked and lived on a south TX ranch. Heck of a hog and javalina dropper.

Thats what I figured I,d use mine on is wild boar. I don't live to far from Ted Nugents hunting acreage and was gonna use it there.

By your profile we both probably enjoyed Nugent in our teenage years. I respect the man for all of his charity work and hunting camps for kids. Does a 1948 Winchester 30-30 count??

Yeah it sure is, my companion gun is a Ruger Redhawk with the 7 1/2 inch barrel.

I've had one for quite a while now. Great little rifle. Good horse back gun. I shoot mostly cast 255 gr Keith swc gc bullets through it and it's as accurate as my old eyes can be. Go out and shoot it.

Quite a few chaps here using a lever .44 mag in conjunction with dogs when hunting pigs. Theory being that it gives great knock down up close, and won`t go whistling off for miles like a bigger calibre is apt too, given that shots up close with dogs close by might be a tad hurried ie: OMG!! I gotta kill this crazy pig!! Type of thing. Not forgetting one could amp up the loads a fair amount over what you`d put in a revolver.
