    Re: Model 1894 Cowboy

    Thumbs up on what 44-40 Willy said. Should not have messed with the New Haven factory and the excellent work force employed there. Bean counters may save money up front but will loose money in the long run as they loose their loyal customers.

    I saw an 1894CB with REP proof in a gun shop in 357. The action was so tight you really had to struggle to cycle the action.

    Guy behind the counter said If I bought it I could send it back and they would fix it. I told him no thanks find another idiot.

    I totally agree that they should have left Marlin alone - however, since they did take it over my other alternative would have been better than trying to build so many different guns in the same plant. I have heard Bushmaster people feel the same way, Remington folks too. It is just a fact of manufacturing life when you spread what talent you do have too thin quality will suffer.

    Re: Model 1894 Cowboy

    Bean counters are buttheads The finished product isnt important..quality doesnt matter..workers arent important.. it is a crying shame what is going on in this country... a lot of these companies arent American owned anymore and ... nevermind.. I'm just getting disgusted with the yahoos that are ruining this Great Country..

    ZRG 1991,
    Are you still there Well you can see by the response here that you just want to hold out a bit here and get yourself an older '94 CB octagonal barrel either in 20" or beter yet 24". I don't think you'll regret the wait. I've got both 20" and 24" both work great. Look for the JM proof on the barrel, just in case.
