    The 1894P is LOUD but I still like to shoot it--with ear muffs! I have taken it out hunting with me but haven't bloodied it yet. I know you got two deer with it.

    Yes sir....shot 2 doe with it 2 days before you and I made the deal.
    The first doe I shot died from the report..not the bullet..lol
    That little carbine will sure get your attention touching her off without ear protection.The second doe dropped like. Someone pulled the table cloth out from under her.Thank god I did not have to shoot again.....my ears were ringing for 20 mins.

    Nice rifle. i have two of them, one is a 82 and the other is a 80. I never really shot them much until recently and they are addicting. I have been loading the 180 grain xtp with 14.5 grains of H-110 and it has a lot of authority and seems more accurate than the 158's. I just put a peep sight on the 80 model and yesterday I could shoot pine cones out of a big pine tree on my sons farm at about 30 yards distance with no problems. They are a great little walking around gun. Congrats.

    There is not one person I would not take hunting......there are a few that would not make it back though.

    My 1894C is one of those Marlin oddities. The serial number indicates it was made in 1983 during the first year of the CBS safety. But my rifle doesn't have one. It was probably made from a left over non-CBS receiver.

    Well I'll say he must be a pretty good friend, or he doesn't know what they go for! I haven't heard of a nice one like that going for $600 bucks in a few years. Very good snag! Congratulations!

    Anxious to know how it handles .38's. Mine does if they are round nose 158 gainers. it's a '79 though and doesn't say 38 special on the barrel. Like horseshoe said, they are great 'walking around rifles'! But they do eat a lot.
