I recently got a Rossi 92 in .45 Colt and have a blast with it. Accurate as can be. I'm thinking about getting a .45-70. Is the recoil punishing? I reload so I could control things to an extent.
In an ideal world a break down would be great but the only ones I've seen are way more expensive than I'd care to spend (WWG Co-Pilot). I'm leaning toward a Marlin 1895 GBL or GSBL but could be convinced otherwise.
