Last year, I thought I overpaid for an 1894c in .357 at $700, but it was the cheapest, and best, that I'd seen (nice bore, it even had a williams peep sight). Now? If you find anything even NEAR there, stamped JM (as in, pre-2009), buy it!
Gunbroker is easy, but expensive. Pawnshops and the used gun rack of your LGS are usually better. It all depends on where you are. Some people have woken up to the versatility of a lever-action...
Son, any day you wake up is a good day.
Look out for the people around you. If you are American, buy American.
