    Ish I don't have one but I remember the gun cause back then I was at Ft. Benning and there was a hunting tragedy involving one. A soldier shot a deer and while walking tward the deer he somehow fell and shot himself with one. Wound was not immediately fatal but he died before they found him.

      They are called Big Bores. Angle eject. Mine was a .356Win. Saw a .375Win at Cabela's a few months back. If you find a good one of these bulbous outdated big woods killing machines that no one wants anymore I might just consider taking it off your hands.

          I somehow failed to remember the Big Bore '94 part but now that you guys refreshened my memory it comes back. I saw a guy the other day who killed the biggest black bear I have ever seen in Wyoming with such a gun back in 1988. He said he long ago traded the rifle off for some reason. That day of the kill he had put one shot into the chest of the beast and it immediately fell. The shot was probably only about 25-30 yards. I probably have a photo of him and the bear soemwhere, got to dig those old pictures out.

            He possibly traded it because of difficulty finding ammo. .307 Win, .356 Win & .375 Win. are pretty much reloaders' gun nowadays.

              I've got one in 444 Marlin, Its a safe queen, was shot 6 times before I got my hands on it. I still have the first box of ammo that it fired.

                .444 was a great cartridge that was never developed or improved upon by the factory at the time it needed to be.

                  Brad - is that .444 mule ported? '90's Big Bores also came in .450 Marlin. Can put a bounce in your back step. Hard to keep track of everything Winchester did with the M94.

                    A friend has one in .375. Found it in a pawn shop because the first owner could't find ammo and wouldn't learn to reload. He bought it for $200! You couldn't buy the gun from him for a $1000. It is his go to woods rifle and he has killed loads of deer and feral hogs with it.

                      Nope its a straight barrel. I've got an 1895 Guide in 450 that's ported barrel and loud. Its fun to shoot but it kicks the snot out of you!! I've got a 45-70 in the same gun that I absolutly love to shoot.
