I'd snag what's available, and worry about buying or trading for the other one later. I'm pretty sure you're going to need more than one anyway. 8)
Well, I am in favour of the 1894P and have all but decided to pick it up. Cowboy models can be found relatively easy even in Sweden but the 1894P is quite rare.1895Gunner said:It really comes down to a personal preference. Also, the 1894P is ported and some folks don't like the extra noise they make. Me personally, I love the ports and prefer them over the non-ported models.
I don't currently own any cowboys (yet) but may change my tune after I do. For deer hunting in the field I believe that you will be much happier with the lighter 1894P.
Here is a pic of mine that I just picked up.
I would mainly use the gun in the forest, no heavy underbrush and not too dense with trees, some hills, no big ones though.micky_blue said:I would ask what the terrain you hunt in is like. I have only been to southern Sweden and it was very hilly and lots of trees. If that were the case I would lean twords the P just for quick shooting. I have read that you Swedes also shoot at running game on a regular basi to s so a longer barrel might be better for balance and swinging the gun. Either is a good choice.
Ok, I'm convinced, will actuall y send the dealer a mail straight away so I'm sure to get it. Worst case is that I am not satisfied and get my money back when selling it1895Gunner said:I have never really noticed the extra noise with ports but some folks on this forum swear it makes them too loud. No big deal if you ask me.
Oh yeah, that is a sweet looking rifle!! Buy it I'd say!Big Swede said:Ok, I'm convinced, will actuall y send the dealer a mail straight away so I'm sure to get it. Worst case is that I am not satisfied and get my money back when selling it
