I’m just starting to get into lever actions so I don’t have a very good idea of the value of certain guns. But, I have an opportunity to buy a 1894 .357 with the safety. Made in 1983, has the JM stamp. Looks to be in good condition. I know it’s not ideal to give gun value advise without pictures or handling the gun. But any idea on what the value could be? We threw around a couple numbers and he didn’t seem to offended with $700. Just wondering if that’s reasonable. Thanks!

$800 today for a JM 1894 in any caliber is a good price. Looking forward to your pics.

Thanks for the feedback! I’m reading that these guns like a heavy grain bullet 158/180. Any advice?
I like 158grn sjsp the best. Higher velocity the better when buying factory. I found some just over 1500fps or so from a revolver. I’m sure they are best 2000 FPS from my carbine and the gun us a tack driver with them.
