I looked at a blued carbine a few years ago and it had a really slick action. Shoulda bought it I guess.
Saw a stainless 20" at another place and it felt like it needed a lot of breaking in. The stainless must be harder to machine.
Wallyworld had a .45 rifle in stock last time I looked. But the .357 would be my choice too.
Might just have to get a youth model 336 until I can find another 16" 92.
"Go afield with a good attitude, with respect for the wildlife that you hunt and for the forest and fields in which you walk. Immerse yourself in the outdoor experience. It will cleanse your soul and make you a better person." Fred Bear
