Pards- Found a NIB 94P at a gun shop today that some guy bought last fall for a hog hunt he never went on and finally decided to trade off. Anyone know how many of these were made? I wonder how loud that 16" ported barrel will bark with mild plinker loads(?). The shop wants $400. Gimme some advice fellas!-RH

Buy it!! Buy it!!! Buy it!!! Thats a good price and the 1894p is an awesome little truck gun-packin the woods rig. It is pretty loud with the ports but not so much as to make me want to give mine up.

I love my '94p; has the XO set up and a burris scout, plus a kick eze pad - people start shooting it and won't quit. I've tried all the ammo, and the white box winchester 240 gr jsp ammo works best (costs least)

I'm thinking about trying some 180 or 200 grain for plinking/ varmint control, any of you guys tried the lighter bullets at all?

Redhammer, I've had good luck with the 200gr Hornady xtp/hp. I'm using hornady data. Viht N-110 powder 23.5gr ,Win Brass and CCI 350LMP. I chrono these at just a smidge under 1900fps and get 1 1/2" groups at 100yards. 1900 is actually a little hot for these bullets but for varmits, plinking and bad people control they'll do most excellent.

Ports.

Have you shot one Fweid?

Nope. Never felt the urge.

I'm guessing from the question that you have, and found the experience satisfactory.

OK. I give...

Whats the draw?

Nanook- I ordered up some goodies for the '94P! :) A WWG trigger, XS ghost ring sight set with the threaded hole for different size appatures and the Wolff reduced power hammer spring, as if it wasn't cool enough before. 8)
