Last weekend I checked out a LGS that I haven't been to before. To my surprise not only did they have a 24" 1894 Cowboy in .357, they also had a 20" 1894 Cowboy Competition in .38 Special which had a custom action job. I left the shop empty handed. After day dreaming about them for a few days I called the store and asked if they were still there. Sure enough nobody snatched them up so I had it in my head those were mine now ;-) Picked them up the next day.

I know you are all here for pictures so here we go...

Sweet! What did you grab them up for?
Hey Gearhouds, After WA taxes I was out the door for around $1,600.

I think that just about satisfies my bad case of Marlinitis. Just to show you how bad the 'itis was my first Marlin was April 28. Ya'll are a buncha pushers :biggrin:

Only question I have about these ladies is do they both have Ballard rifling?

I'd say you did good on the price. My 1979 1894 .357 cost me $750 plus tax at at estate auction this year and I was tickled pink. If yours shoot half as good as mine does you'll be plumb ecstatic. They are fuuuuunnnnn.
