I finally had time to get back to the range again. I bought a 1978 model 1894 last December and shot it again yesterday. I shot all reloaded ammo and everything worked out fine. My old eyes aren't what they used to be so I put a 4X Simmons scope on it that I had laying around here. I bought a Bushnell Laser Boresighter and it got the scope within 1/2" on the bullseye. I made a few small adjustments and I was right in where I wanted to be. I'm going to load up a couple different loads and get back to the range and test it again. I'm very happy with my purchase and after shooting the new loads I should be "good to go".
