Surprised to find this at a local FFL. Seems like a nice handy little rifle. I was planning on getting one of the new 1894's in 44 when Ruger starts producing, but who knows when that will be, and they will probably be selling for $1K over MSRP for a while, So, decided to take this home instead!

Already had the Skinner on it, and I removed the front sight hood. I have a Weaver 1-3X I may mount on it.

Thanks, It was some handling marks on the butt stock, but nothing too serious. They are the type you have to hold the gun at just the right angle to notice. I won't lose the hood !

Did you get it for less than what the gougers are fetching for them on GB?
Yes, from what I can tell. I am watching one on Gunbroker right now that is almost over. It's currently about $250 more than I paid, but does look to be in slightly better condition from that I can tell in the pics.

Mrbumps, I'm the lucky winner of the one you were watching on gunbroker, I bit the bullet and cast my bid, more than I wanted to pay by a few hundred, but it is in perfect shape minus the factory box. I could never find another like it, it will look nice setting with my 444p and 1895gs in the gun rack. I've always wanted one and had to pull the trigger on it! Pics will come as soon as I recieve it in a week or two!
Congrats! To be honest, I thought that would go higher. They are getting harder to find, so I think prices will remain high. And no matter what the MSRP is on the new 1894's due this year, they will probaby sell for north of $2K for a while.

I woud love a 444P myself. I have the new 1895 Trapper in 45-70, and I have the 336D which is the Trapper version in 35 Remington. I love these short barreled, fast handling guns.
