Hi. I was just kicking around in the .22 forum and thought I would just post a quick update on the 2013 1894 C I bought new, made in Ilion New York stamped on the barrel. I shoot about 150 rounds a month with it and have done so since I bought it. Lead heads and my own cowboy action load. It has never skipped a beat, never once has it not gone off, failed to load or failed to eject. Never once has it ever done anything it wasn't supposed to ever. I shoot it with the original iron sights and average 95 on pl12 targets at 20 yards indoors. The action is slick and positive and it shoots exactly where I point it, every single time. It is the most reliable piece of machinery I have every owned and it is a pleasure to use and own. Truly remarkable, I love it. Regards RDF.
