    Winchester Model '92 Large Loop

    Winchester is currently offering its Model 1892 in .357 with a large-loop lever. It seems like the large loop would be a pain in the rear to operate, given the extra distance the shooter's hand has to travel. Does anyone here have experience shooting one, and, if so, what is your thought? How does the .357 compare to the same gun in .45? Thanks.

    I am a Winchester lever nut too. The large loop looks dumb to me and I have no desire to own one. That said, I never tried one. To me it looks like a childest idea that fourteen year old John Wayne worshipers have to have. If they were practical I would think they would have been made 150 years ago. Well, maybe if I lived in Siberia and hunted with thick mittens.

    the one thing i dislike about this forum are people like you. He didn't ask for your stupid opinion only if anyone had any experience with one.
    Anyone who doesn't worship John Wayne, Chuck Connors etc. shouldn't be on this forum. Why don't you keep your NON ask for, trite opinion to yourself.

    I fondled a large loop Marlin in 44 mag / 44 spl, 16.5 inch ported barrel, dadgum it feels sweet in the hands. The $1k price is the hold up. Oh, that cross bolt safety is a turn off as well.

    Yet he has been booted from at least one forum I know of for this very same thing.

    I have one- 94' version in .44 I think John Wayne was great, miss him and his kind a lot. USA would be better IMO if we had more of his stamp and they were still around.



    If you want user, shoot a lot- hunt with it a lot- home defense etc lever gun the regular loop rifle would be better imo.

    If you want a fun range toy rifle the big loop is great and it could serve all other functions as well- the one I have- I thought about changing the lever to regular but never did. I have a R92 in .357 that I shoot quite a bit with the regular lever.
