Revolver Rifle, Pistol Caliber Combos

These set-ups saved the lives of a lot of Cowboys and Frontier Families for decades
Here are pics of my three Ruger Marlin Combo Set-ups:

I also have and love a combo in 357, but the wheelie is not a BH, it's a Dan Wesson.

Edited to add: Come to think of it, have a 22 combo too, a 10/22 and a 22/45.

I had one of the Winchester Trappers in .45 Colt, that was a fun gun to shoot! Was shooting mine at a 200yd lane on an outdoor range, the sun was at my back and it was reflecting off the back of the 200gr JHP that I was sending at a target, the trajectory was equal to that of a rainbow! Even at +P+ pressures, the bullet drop in 200yds was something like 9' best I can remember. It was quite funny to watch them fly.

44WCF and 44-40 = same right? 38WCF and 38-40 same?

Not so funny when you can see them fly back at you Had a similar phenomenon occur with me many years ago shooting 45 hard ball with my 1911 at a tree stump about 40 yds away. Didn't see bullets going down range; but sure as heck could see them whiz by me after hitting the stump and bouncing back my direction. The sun was just right; they looked like mini orange fire balls.

That can be scary, I actually had one hit me in the chest.
A good thump, but, no damage.

Awesome collection.

I have an 1894PG in .44 magnum and I'm looking for a Ruger Bisley in .44 magnum. Now I'm thinking I need a Marlin or Henry .22 for my single six!





I'm leaning towards the Henry youth because my kids can shoot it and its in stock at my LGS!

I have a Marlin 39 Century Ltd and a Colt Buntline Peacemaker .22 to shoot with it.

Recently, I got a Ruger Buckeye Blackhawk in 32-20 to shoot with my 1919 Winchester model 92 in 32-20.

There's a pawn shop in High Point that has a 1939 Winchester 92 in 38-40... would go nicely with the other Buckeye in 38-40!

Here's mine in .357 Magnum. I usually enjoy just shooting .38 Specials through them.

My Marlin 1894P and Ruger Redhawk .44 Mag are my deer/hog combo.
Now, I need a Marlin 39, a Marlin 1894 .45 Colt, Marlin 1894 .32 H&R, and a BFR .444 Marlin.
Maybe I need to see if Ruger will fit a .22 mag cylinder to my late 70s single six.
That would go great with my Ruger 10/22 Mag and Rossi 59 .22 Mag.

Just realized that my Rossi 62 .22 LR would be a great companion for my Single Six.

Darn, now I need a Marlin 1894 tree-fiddy-sebbin to go with my GP100.

Your set-up sounds more like the "Real Deal" then mine
