I hope your "prize" is as advertised. Mint or really any .41 mag. 1894s' are almost as rare as unicorns, but are certainly worthy of the search! They are great rifles in unique, handy cartridges. I've been enjoying my CCL for quite some time.
Keep us apprised when your "new to you" '94 shows up. Photos and range reports are always welcome!
Looks nice. A 41 Mag lever gun is on my list. Just a bit disappointed that Henry doesn't make one in a side loading gate version. Of course, even if they did, isn't likely to be available. I searched for 2 years to find a Henry Frontier Lever Action in 22 Mag (at a realistic price-not the GunBroker scalper's prices), and finally found a used one at a gun show about 2 months ago in almost new condition at a price I was willing to pay. Seems everybody is running behind these days.
