    The Henry 22 Large Loop is hugely popular and so is their accessory options for the Large Loop in other models.
    They do add a different look to a market flooded with regular levers from Browning, Rossi and the old standby.
    And as Kid Sopris said the 357 is very accurate.

    I’ve got two 1894 Trappers in 44 Magnum, one came with a large loop and a standard loop. I prefer the standard loop but like Marlins medium size loop that is in between Winchesters standard and large loop levers.

    I have one of the original golden boy Henry’s before they moved as nib with large loop (Brooklyn I believe). Makes your day when you remember a gun you forgot you had ... I got it from a dear friend so I might go, grab a brick, and end the as NIB part.

    Hondo was the only John Wayne film originally shot and exhibited in 3D. You know back when you had to wear those cardboard glasses with the red and blue cellophane lenses. They use a polarized lens system today. The only way one can see it today is in 2D, so it may have been edited quite a bit. There are some odd shots such as the Apaches thrusting their spears right at the camera. This was done to accentuate the 3D effects at the time, but it looks kind of stupid now since it's no longer shown in 3D.

    Here's the Ringo introduction scene from stagecoach. Hit pause at 19 seconds and you can see that the rifle appears to have shortened barrel--at least less than normal like one of the trapper lengths.

    Cheers

    P.S. I bet Wayne had the prop people make several rifles for him over the years since they could get treated pretty rough at times. Chuck Connors had at least 3 for his TV show and one of them was a Spanish made El Tigre. That was the one they used when the gun had to get thrown to the ground or generally mistreated.

    Wish I had this one back. A 92 in .44 wcf. Its DOM was 1902. I was told it came off a reservation in the Dakota`s. I can believe it. I bought it in the 1970`s. It was stole out of my house along with many more in 2003.

    Several Western stars were my hero`s too after I got to know them such as Clint Walker, Jimmy Stewart, Brian Keith, Jack Lord, Broderick Crawford etc.
    I would love to hear some of your recollections some time, especially regarding Jimmy Stewart. He is one of my biggest heroes.

    I was always of the thought that large loops yield better access while wearing winter gloves.

    I could see where the loop could be problematic if hunting and you need a quick follow-up shot. But for every day target shooting the loop is not a deterrent.

    Two large loop '94's to show barrel length. Top is a Rossi in .45 Colt. Center is the John Wayne Commemorative in .32-40 and bottom, for comparison sake, is '94 AE XTR "1985 Chevy Outdoor Edition in .30-30.

Personally, I think the gun does not look right with a loop and the 20" barrel. The 16 incher looks just right. In this publicity shot from Rio Bravo he's pretending to spin it. And here's a great pic of him in Hondo with maybe the same gun. In "El Dorado" Robert Mitchum carried an identical carbine (20") and JW uses one in the final shootout but don't know what length. Maybe the same gun? I don't think I seen both guys holding them together in the same scene.



    The Hondo photo is interesting. Note that Wayne has the loop sandwiched between his index finger and the rest of his hand. I was thinking it would take a grip like that to deal with the larger lever, so I'm happy go see the Duke doing it. Of course, his hands were a lot bigger than mine.

    Speaking of jimmy Stewart and Winchesters, I think along with "My Darlin' Clementine", "Winchester 73" had the best black & white cinematography ever. And the final shootout in the rocks was as authentic as you can probably get where they even try to shoot each other with ricochets. Check out the great high contrast B&W photography in this short clip...

    I think I own a large loop lever for a M-94 Winchester. I used to carry it to gun shows a few years ago, but I could never sell it. It was an extra one that came from U.S. Historical when they were building commemoratives with the large loop lever.
