Hi....haven't visited the site in a while. Hope everyone has been well. I just got my second 1894....an 1894C in 357 to match the 1894M in 22mag I lucked out on last year. Wow..I must say I don't think I've ever fallen in love with a shooting iron as fast as I did that one! I took it out to the range with one box of magtech 158 grainers and shot better than I really am capable of! Off the bags it put 10 rds in 2" at 50 yds and holy cow....10 shots in 5" offhand!! Needless to say, I fell in love. I like it so much I'm ordering the 44 mag model tomorrow. I got it at a good deal...$401 out the door at wallie's. Talk to ya' later...
