    Anyone own a lever gun with the big loop. I'm a big guy and have large hands so thought this might be better for me. Any input from you all would be great.

    if you are talking about one for the Marlin lever actions, try Brownell's as they carry them sometimes. another source that may have them is Numrich Gun parts. might also try Marlin too. as they might sell you the part, if it's not restricted.

    Had one installed last year and makes wearing a glove much easier. Glad I changed to the larger loop.

    Thanks all. I don't own a lever action marlin yet. Ive just been looking at them chambered in 45-70. I like the guide version with the rail and peep but hate the stainless. Personally I think the big loop looks better and would work better for me. Just wish I could get that guide setup blued or matte grey. I'll check out that website and maybe I can build exactly what I want. I'm trying to get my first marlin lever action and my next glock at the same time. Maybe they will cut me a deal for buying both .

    Look at the 1895 GBL. I think that is what you are looking for.

    Wild West Guns in Alaska makes The Big Loop Lever. I think they sell for around $150.00 ask Ken about The Outdoor Forum discount...

    This is strange because I was just telling my wife how I was always destined to own lever rifles! When I was 5 about 1960 I was facinated with The Rifleman (Chuck Conners) TV series and the rifle he used with the big loop lever and the unique ways he used it. I just told my e-mail buddy how my Marlin 336 .35 caliber, factory lever was painful on the back of my fingers and told him about the large or over-sized lever loop I had when I was 5yrs old with my toy replica Rifleman gun that shot real "spring loaded" bullets (safety measures were pretty much non-existant back then). I think the one pictured here would be ideal for my old Remi.

    IMHO The Best Place to Get a Large Loop Lever is Here:
    http://www.mulemangunworks.com/mule-loops-custom-levers/
    I Have Mule Loops on Both of my Marlins & Love Them.
    Jamie at Muleman Gunworks Made Both for Me.
    The One I Have on my 1894CS is a Custom Design that Jamie & I Came up with.
    The one I Have on My 336 .30-30 is the "Hunter" PG Loop.
    Not Only do they Look Great, But the Workmanship Is Excellent.
