Last week I went in a gun&pawn and found a 1894c 357 mag. it was the older model with out the block safety, the beaded front sight and small hammer spur serial #18029xxx in great condition, for $450 out the door, I asked the on the 1894 board they said it was a good buy, so I got it. Today I went in another gun&pawn, they had a 336 LTS looked liked to be 16" barrel with hammer block safety, in 30-30 but it looked just like the 1894c only it was a 336 beaded front sight plain walnut no checking, in good condition. Well this guy wanted $450 + tax. What do you think?
