There are a couple of 1894CSTs on gunbroker, with price ~MSRP.

https://www.gunbroker.com/item/786251281

https://www.gunbroker.com/item/785828991

They look good, just wish that they had synthetic stocks instead of painted wood.

Neat.

In the first link, the featured gun's specs are stated to be:

•CAL - .357 MAGNUM
•16.5 INCH THREADED BARREL
•6 ROUND CAPACITY
•MINT CONDITION WRINKLE BLACK SYNTHETIC STOCK AND FOREND

...which seems odd to me. Which is it? Wood or "synthetic", I wonder.

And my 16" Rossi 92 holds at least eight rounds. I may have modified it's magazine spring; I forget (if it was that gun or my 18" 1894CS357). My '94 Marlin holds nine rounds... but it's an 18".

Well, they didn't hit that model out of the park. Crappy looking stock and expensive. Better models are out there.

dagnabbit! Why don't those fools get their facts straight?


Michael, please know I am not disputing *you*, I've only posted what was in the link. I'm on your side, sir! ...and have always been.


Edit: Wait! One gun is stainless, the other blued? Is that an indication too of different stock material? I wonder...

Well, the stocks are textured to seem synthetic, but AFAIK, Marlin hasn't offered a synthetic stock on their leverguns in...forever.

I like the sound of that! c'mon. Wait... what're you saying?!

I can say that I will have four lever carbines with me in attendance:

.357 Rossi 92 16" blued
.357 Marlin 94 18" blued
.41 Marlin 94 FG 20" blued
.44 Mag Miroku Browning 92 (Winchester) 20" blued

and some single-action whirlenpoppers for good measure.


Fall Mojave Levergun Madness shoot? yessirs!

Yep. Stock is hardwood and painted, kind of like the Mossberg MVP Patrol .308 I have. I like it.

I want one of them bad, but not bad enough to pay MSRP! I'd have paid the 875 if I had been 3 minutes quicker, dangitt.

That .41 mag would be a gas. I'll bring my Mod 94 30-30, scoped and the Henry. Heck, may as well bring the '57 39A too.

Commercially-loaded, Remington brand .41 Remington Magnum is loaded HOT. As in .44 Mag hot. I've some PMC from the early '90s, and age has made it potent, too.

The cost of off-the-shelf .41 Mag will surprise you. It's one reason I started handloading.

A neat load for .41 Mag is 10 grains Unique under a 210 grain jacketed hp. I need to whip up some more of those. Still thumps, but with a more-reasonable, perceived recoil. I won't have time to develop a lead bullet load for it, though. I'm looking at a 250 grain WFN for it, but I need to slug the bore so's I can get the right diameter bo0lit. Fer plinkin' we'll have some LAX plated and some mellow handloads of mine, and some of the commercial stuff I mentioned.

Then there's .44 Mag. Literally awesome from a 20" barrel. The real fun, though, is .357 from a carbine, and a 250 grain slug @ 1000 fps from a single action .44 Special REE-volvr. yeehaw!

All of a sudden, I have a lot to do!

For you Marlin 1894 guys. So my new Marlin seemed like it has a very light recoil compared to my much heavier Rossi 92s (Oct barrels) when shooting .357 mag, it seems like it should be just the opposite.
Is this something you guys have noticed when comparing the two models? Or am I just nuts?

If the action turns out to be half as smooth as my Rossi's, I'll be happy. Those two Rossi's I have are really smooth, and I didn't do anything to them other then work the action and shoot em.

I'm going to try and get out to the spot so I can get you guys the right directions. I'm thinking sometime in the middle of November, if that sounds good to ya'll

FWIW, I have a case of .38sp semi wad cutters that we can plink with. I'm not sure how these will do out to 50 yards with a carbine. I got s good deal on em last year.

Mid Nov would probably work. Just bought a Weaver Classic v 1-3x20mm scope for the Henry. Now I'll be able to see what I'm aiming at. Hopefully.

It could be down to stock design; things like comb height, etc... stuff I know very little about. All I know is that I have both, and I love mounting my Marlins more than my Winchesters, but the Wins are prettier. Reminds me of what one very wise, very beautiful and very shrewd French courtesan to the royal court had to say many years ago: "All men want two women. A thin one to go out with and a fat one to go home with."

Still true, over 300 years later. Oh! and .38s will do fine out to 50 yards fer plinkin'. Might even neutralize a threat...

penn, and I say this with the utmost humor, I think it was either Paco Kelly or Chuck Hawks who said, "There's a special place in hell for those who would scope a lever gun."



HEE!

I won't be around much more tonight. Gotta git up at 3:15 a.m. I'll check in tomorrow to read your insults! in reply.

I've had my new 1894c for a week now. I haven't been able to shoot it yet, At first I could only get 7 rounds in the mag tube and that wore my thumb out. I've been leaving rounds in the mag, took 2 days for me to get all 9 rounds in, it is getting easier to load.
Sorry I won't be able to join you guys in the Mojave, it's pretty long drive for me.

At least it will hold the same number as your sidearm heehee.

Hahaha! OK, you get a pass...

63 here, though I often don't act like it. The buckhorns are ok in good light, but I'd like to try a ghost ring setup on one of my levers. I have a peep or two; a Marbles for a Winchester tang and a Williams for my .357 '94 but neither peep is installed.

I'll bring the 24" Rossi so you guys can get some action with ghost ring sights. I hate to admit it but I can see myself dumping the expensive skinner sights and going this route with my other two .357s..
A red dot would be nice and I'd love to try one on a 357 levergun. I figure since I put fiber optic front sights on two of them that I've already broken the cowboy code.

Yeaa! Thanks golfish. I have a hard time with that part of posting. Shows how tech savvy I am.
That's the 1-3x20mm Weaver that's going on as soon as I get my base/ring set-up from Henry. Thanks again golfish.

Hey Penn, how long have you had that Henry? It looks well aged...

Almost a month. I bought it used. Found out from Henry rep it is a Nov 2016 manuf date. Whoever had it before must have handled it a lot, but, I don't believe it was ever shot. No markings anywhere indicating ever being fired.
The barrel had dust in it, no markings on the feed-tube plunger, no markings in chamber or redeiver. Dry as a bone when I bought it. I've rubbed a little "Brasso" on it to bring it back. Not a lot of effort. Will do more maybe. kinda like the "worn" look tho.

I will bring my matching 5-1/2" blued .44 Spl flat tops. One is lapped for lead swc, the other is unlapped, for jacketed bullets. I don't think the 4-5/8" stainless you might have seen will be firelapped in time (while fire lapping is a straightforward affair, it is also a very tedious process because the gun needs cleaning every six rounds... and one might have to shoot 50 to 100 rounds to clear any barrel imperfections such as thread choke or dovetail choke).

I'm looking forward to a pleasant day in the desert with like-minded cho0ters when the time comes.

Its hard to tell with those. I don't own one in brass but I think a little patina would be nice. The wood has such a rich color to it.

Agreed. Kinda liking the way it looks as is. And as you know, those octagon barrel rifles are HEAVY! But steady.

Marlin 94C out of jail this past Thurs. With about 150 rounds through it, still 2" low with the rear sight at full height. Hmmm. Consistent with 125's and 158's, factory and reloaded hot and light.

After I figure out the steel sights, plan is to test a Bushnell Trophy TRS-25 red dot. It works great on my 9mm PCC. Don't like the aesthetics, but need the help seeing.

Mojave Lever Spectacular sounds great. I'm in. Will ask my neighbor to bring his 348.

This is starting to sound like an event. An annual event. Could be an awful lot of fun for the dedicated lever guys. A building get together, if you will. Awesome what we have going here. We shall see.
