I would be willing to bet that any 1894 will shoot an 1-1/2" group at 100 yrds, with good factory ammo and probably less with a good worked up handload.

I say this because my 357 has a good tang mounted peep and I get 1-1/2" groups with it. My sons 44 mag easily shoots 2-1/2-3" groups with factory ammo at 100yrds with the crappy stock sights.

My bet is that his gun would benifit from better sights and some forend work as well as a little better trigger. My 357 has had all tree improved. I honestly believe that any of these guns is capable of 1-1/2" groups and possibly less. If those handgaurds rattle or your shooting style doesn't take into account the forces you can put on the barrell while trying to hold it steady the groups will easily open up.
