Mine recent 1894 Carbine in .357 find is still at the LGS. I need 4 more bills to bring her home. I bet you beat me with pics.

CONGRATS cowboycopus! If its your fist 1894C, your in for a treat. My favorite pastime is shooting a bunch of .357 from an 1894C. Man they have an appetite for ammo. Hope your a reloader. Can't wait to see some pic's.

It is my first Marlin Carbine and it is my first .357 levergun. Ser.# dates it to 1980. Even though it has been re-blued and bore is only "good" I think I did good at $350.00.
I think the stocks will clean up. Will try to get better pix in sunlight but my camera may not do much better than this. I need a new camera.

Hey Cow Boy,

Sweet looking 1894!

Give the Sweet's 7.62 solvent a try, before "giving up" on the bore. It may just be "copper fouled".

Later, Mark

Sweet's is a solvent with ammonia that really does a number on copper. Barnes CR-10 is another one, but follow the instructions.

Edit:
Make sure you don't use a brass brush or you get copper fouling off the brush and never know when to finish.
