I was at Gander Mtn today and they had a Magnum Research 9" ish revolver chambered for 45-70 Anyone ever shoot a 45-70 revolver? From another thread: You might have a gun problem if- you buy a 45-70 revolver just 'cause it's cool as hell

Yeah, I shot one... It was NO FUN! It makes a S&W 500 look rather whimpy. And just wait until you see how much the ammo is!

The only .45-70s I've shot were the single shot Contender. With factory loads this is not too bad, but the handloads I was using were pretty violent, using 500 gr. cast bullets wrapped in Teflon tape. The bearing surface was wrapped in tape prior to sizing and used in place of bullet lube. This gun also had those rubber grips which peel the hide off your hand.

God made walnut for handgun grips.

I have one and it's really not as bad as everyone says. Granted, unless you have forearms like Chuck Norris you have to take aim as your arm is being dragged down by the heft. I think is kicks less than a 44 mag. but it is expensive to shoot.

Hope this helps.

I have shot the TC Contender in 45-70 and some little small carbines and never thought about it being hard on recoil. But I have been shooting guns since I was 16 yrs old and that includes 18 yrs on the Army Pistol team. I also have a 500 SW and it is no fun to shoot. I get about 5 rounds off, even with a glove, and that is all I want for the day. It took several trips to the range to get the monster sighted in. My son now, will shoot the damn thing until he runs me out of expensive ammo. I think he is just showing off for his Dad. LOL

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!
