how about another classic pre-64 Model 94?

in fact this one by one book says was made very early, in the first year. Another collector book says it was made in the second year of production. The gun is a 26" octagonal barreled 32-40. It is in good mechanical shape and I wouldn't be afraid to shoot it at all. It is in pretty good shape for being 120 years old. It has some dings and scratches and someone must have got him a deer with it as he "engraved" a deer on the butt stock. All in all it is a real American classic. It has several features that say it was a special order. Three of my close friends that know a lot more about early Model 94s than I do told me it was a real classic and one that is pretty rare. Both stated that it should sell for $1500 to $2000 but I like to price things right and move them along. So this old classic is priced at $1295 plus shipping.

A very historic and fine round. I think they used it in target shooting in the day. Those fancy single shot rifles.

it was the caliber chambered in the John Wayne Winchester

I'm sure it's easy to make and play nice with. I'd love an old Winny like that, what historic class. That's better than anything you can buy today in a store.

I love the 39-55 ? Pete

cherish. It's an old Big Bore 94 XTR in .375 Win. I even made a custom bullet by shaving the top out of a LEE 265 gr. mould. It makes a fine 215 gr. Gas Check FP. It should really blaze out too but I have not worked with it lately. I really want to hang onto that one now. I can't see the sights worth a hoot, need to source a Lyman or Williams rear Peep for it. Didn't those take a special Number sight, due to the frame humps?

the only one I can think of off hand is the Williams

Fool Proof peep sight. The number on it is FP-94/375.
