The coolest ones are the ones from Jim West at Wild West Guns in Alaska:

http://www.wildwestguns.com/CoPilot_And_Guide_Rifles/copilot_and_guide_rifles.html

I don't have one, but the people that I know who do have them swear by them. Their SBR "Bushwhackers" are too totally cool! I keep a Winchester '94 Trapper in .44 Magnum in my bedroom, usually loaded with 240-gr JHPs from Black Hills. I've put a lot of rounds through the gun over the years, and it has been flawless (I know their reputations are something less).

I've been half-way thinking about getting a Marlin Guide Gun or 1895 in .45/70 and tricking it out a little to give me a more powerful option...

Thanks for reply. I hope to finish mine in the future. I call it my politically correct patrol rifle. Glad I found this forum.

A couple years ago I turned my Marlin 336 into a Scout rifle with forward mounted Leupold M-7.  Then last year I saw MadOgre's cut down 3030 wih black stock.  I cut my barrel to 16.75 inchs, bought the plastic stock from Ramline, and added a red dot sight. Also put on a home made flashlight mount on the mag tube.
You've come a far piece pilgrim.

Hy Erik;

If you're around, what would you think of a 1-day Tactical Lever Gun class in Tulsa?

I'd like to do it for SHOOTING GALLERY 2009, and maybe Marshal and I could video the whole thing and make it available to the Forum...

Sounds like one I can't wait to see! I'd like to get me a .454 Casull Lever action with a 16 inch barrel and large loop lever. Oh, and BTW Michael, the Guide guns are awesome. My dad has one.

I've had this urge for a Guide Gun, but lack the spare bucks...I think 45/70 is one of the best cartridges ever, and I've been thinking that the bedroom .44 Magnum Trapper could easily be replaced with a 45/70 Hammer of God...

I have a Puma .454 that I keep loaded by the bed.  18 inch ported barrel.  It's a thumper.

"I've had this urge for a (Insert currently lusted for Gun{s} here), but lack the spare bucks"

Story of my life. S&W 649 with Lasergrips, Charter Arms Bulldog, Puma .454, and now the Kahr PM45 now that it's here....... The Snubbies are the ones I want the most at the moment.

And yeah the .45-70 will definitely STRIKE DOWN any sinner that breaks into your home in the dead of night.... Be it man or Grizzly. Anyone else think S&W should chamber their X-frame revolver for .45-70??? The Puma 454 is the Lever action I want. I want mine with a 16 inch barrel and a large loop lever (That's the John Wayne fan in me.).
