    1894 22 mag tale

    A couple months back, at the Convention center show in Reno, a guy was shopping around an 1894 22 mag, probably 95% or better. My buddy passed on it, and I did too, not realizing how scarce they are. And I believe 4 bills would have bought the gun.

    Anyway, of course hindsight being 20/15, I researched it a bit, and was kicking myself for not buying it. Cant cry over spilled milk of course, and I dont.... too much.

    Well, I saw the same gun Saturday, same show, at the table of another old time buddy, and he was bragging it up, "this is only the second or third one of these I have ever seen", and seeings how he is older than Noah, and been trading guns about same number of years, thats saying something. He had gotten it from another of the locals, who I know for certain snagged it at the last show.

    Only reason I am sure is that it had the screws left in the top, where someone had taken off the scope base. They were allen head screws, which made them rather distinctive, and the condition etc was the same.

    Oh well, as I like to say, " a good education is expensive".

    Its interesting that the media calls conservative protestors, "militia" and "domestic terrorists" while world wide and in the states liberal protestors are always called "students".

    I too have been there, just usually on the other end----I pay too dag gone much for it and then find out it's worth 1/2 of what I paid for it!! I have never come across one of those 1894's in 22 mag, but I see them bring big money on gunbroker and at $400 for the one you saw was a steal!

    Frank, I've watched several of the 1894 22 magnums sell on Gunbroker over the last few months and they fetch a pretty penny. The cheapest one I seen sell went for over $700 and the highest went for $932 (like new). I'd love to have one, but that's alot a cash for a 22 mag.

    Last year I was at a show and found a box set of two marlin rifles with sequential numbers. One was a 1894 in 22 mag and the other a 336 30/30. Both had 20 " octagon barrels with nice wood. Some kind of special set or something. Unfired and mint. I was drooling over them but knew I didn't have the cash. Guy was aking 2k for them. He knew I like them and came down to 1400. I still couldn't afford them at the time. Lesson I learned was don"t go to the show without at least $1500 inmy pocket
