    Just watched today's episode of North To Alaska with Larry Csonka. He was hunting moose with what appears to be a stainless guide gun, I assume .45-70 but I'm not certain. I only saw the last half of the show and they made no mention of his firearm. Only what I observed. When he took the shot it obviously rocked his big frame backward from recoil so it had to be a big bore. It was a full stainless, short mag rifle with a black receiver peep and black ramp style front sight. No scope. I suppose the rifle manufacturer wasn't a sponsor so nothing would have been said about the firearm in the video.

    In the video his guide/hunting buddy was clearly backing him up with another lever gun. It was a full mag tube blued rifle that had to be a Winny given the look of the receiver and top eject design.

    Nice to see a lever gun used in one of these shows but my curiosity about what he actually used is peaking.

    I tried that before I posted here. On a recent episode of Gun Nuts David Petzal briefly showed off his 1895GBL that he sent to WWG for some upgrades. It only lasted a couple minutes but it was nice to see. Petzal is a fan of lever actions even if he doesn't mention them much.

    It must have been the 1895GS 45-70.. The GS doesn't exist in 450marlin or 444marlin.
    I have the GS my self and I LOVE IT!
