    Custom 1894 worked over by Ranger Point Precision

    I recently picked up a pretty clean pre-safety 1894 in .44 mag. As soon as it got here I boxed her up and sent it to Ranger Point Precision to have a few mods done to it. List of modifications include shortening the bbl to 16.5", full action/trigger job, adding Skinner Express sights, filling the rear factory dovetail, fit WWG large loop lever, install recoil pad, Slim the forearm, refinish the stocks, and finish all the metal in a gray KG Gunkote. I know this won't be everyones cup of tea, but it turned out exactly as I was hoping it would. I had in mind a handy truck rifle that would put the hurt on hogs, and also something that would be easy to pack around while hunting mountain lions in rough country. I have only had time to put 20 rounds through it but it shoots extremely well, I hope to give it a good workout this coming weekend! The Skinner sights are also a huge upgrade over factory, and I really like the way they look on these rifles. I also had them Gunkote the Skinner rear base, and I love how it just looks like a integrated part of the gun. Here are a few before/after pictures, and it's obvious I'm no photographer! I will say I can highly recommend Adam and Patrick at RPP. They are very easy to work with, have a quick turnaround, and do excellent work. Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!

    Any time you customize a gun, it is always nice when the finished result meets or exceeds expectations..... Very nice.

    Nicely done! I think you've created a neat little carbine.

    I concur with the replies in your thread, sir!: Bad ass, very nice, beautiful, nicely done... and there's just something about that grey finish... does it remind me, even if it's a stretch, of an early Win 94 receiver that didn't hold it's blue? Either way, your carbine looks fantastic.

    :-)

    Thanks everyone! And yes I have always liked the look of a old lever gun with a highly worn blued finish, and from a distance this finish somewhat resembles that. These pictures were taken in full on early morning light, so it usually looks slightly darker than these pictures show. I'm very happy with how the color came out.
