My price collecting is not comprehensive but here's what I have. To me it looks like increases seem to come in waves and 1894C where lows increase and highs get higher. Owners may be cashing in.



(Average lines are a bit skewed by my unsteady attempt to add them in Excel. Actual figures are included in the text.)

I bought 2019 1894C in March of 2019 for $599. I decided to go new because finding a good use one was challenging. Plus, it will surely out last me and maybe the grandkids.

I bought a new 1894C in 2006 at Big 5 for $358. This and my 1895SS in 45/70 are my two favorite rifles.

Thanks -69.55 and Dynactus. I enjoy doing the plots, scheming to find patterns, and trying to outwit Microsoft Excel. I have a couple hundred data points for the 1894 .44 Magnum but gotta get a few months more prices and rest my brain before attending to that model.

The reason I don't have one besides I prefer the 1892 design is obvious now. I was looking when the prices were highest.

Paid $169 in December 1980 for my 1894C 357 mag. Looking back I wish I had bought as many as I could carry. Online inflation calculator says $169 then is equivalent to $484 today.

I guess $599 was not too far off, for a new one. Hopefully, I will be able to shoot it for at least 40 years, then pass it in for another 40 years or so.
