^ ^ ^ Folks must be hard up for guns 'cause that one is already commanding $1425... with only 6 bids and 4 days left to go.

Of course, one could always pay almost $1000 over street price and Buy It Now...

Makes me glad to have one in .44 (1894 SBL).

Interesting. That is not in my form. Maybe they do have multiple versions.

I've never owned a 1873 but they do seem to cycle faster and slicker than any other, except for the other early Winchesters.

I bought a Marlin 1894C Dark as soon as I saw one. It was $900 and I thought that was a lot.

They are going for $1700 now.

I put a Red Dot on mine and it is very, very accurate. I am impressed.

If the value goes up any more I may have to trade it for an 1873! Ha! Just kidding (maybe).

I recently bought a Henry Big Boy in 45 Colt. The first thing I noticed was how very smooth the action was. It's a nice rifle for right around $850.

They just never interested me, the action is too week for my liking. Great looking gun and it did win the west.

“New” as in new from a shop. I’m sure there are plenty of unfired guns in private hands.

While I am interested in the Taylor's color case hardened 357 magnum I also checked out the Henry website. They have a Big Boy color case hardened in 357 magnum for the same price I paid for my 45 Colt which is about $350 less than the Taylor's. The money is not so much of an issue but I would have to order the Henry while the Taylor's is there now. One other thing is that the Henry has checkering on the stock and front guard. I hate to be picky but I think the checkering takes away from the vintage look and I would notice that every time I took it out of the safe. That puts the Henry on the back burner.

Different clerks at Turners have told me the same thing, if a gun is not in the warehouse then there is no serial # assigned yet. You can get the deposit refunded if no serial# is assigned, otherwise have to apply your deposit to a different item. My experience from 2 different deposits at Turners has been:
1) ordered a Springfield 1911 MC OP, put down the minimum and had to wait with no date of ETA. Waited a month and ended up getting an off-roster MC OP, so transferred my deposit towards a CZ SP-01 that came in 6 weeks.
2) ordered a Browning Maxus in a specific camo, waited 2 months and decided to hunt for the gun elsewhere, deposit was refunded by check from corporate.

Clerk told me the same thing about full refund if no serial number assigned. Didn't mention applying deposit to different firearm if serial number is assigned, but I didn't ask. If I get a serial number, I'm buying, even if it takes months!

As I mentioned in previous post, the agreement says transaction is cancelled if not completed and gun picked up by date specified. If they can't deliver the gun by the date specified because they don't have it, there is no way they can keep your deposit. You will win that argument, if they even try to argue. In my case, the date specified was 30 days from deposit dte. In the current environment, I am happy to give them at least a month to try.

Well, I know me. If I had a deposit on a gun that became unavailable I would not take my deposit back. I would immediately put it on another gun.

Does anyone know the process or know if Marlin will be shipping them to Turners in the Future?

Any suggestions to follow up with out being a pain?
Let us know if you do get it, I'm curious about inventory. I wanna order one, not from Turner's though.

Which model Taylor's ? Lots of guys shy away from the Henry because of the top loading. I think that makes a better range toy because its easier to load then the side gate.

I didn't notice the actual model of the Taylor's. I guess I was too busy drooling over the rifle. It is a 357 magnum, color case hardened with the 20" octagon barrel. I just did a quick look online and it appears to be the 1873 Sporting Rifle.

Not a great choice if you plan to shoot magnum rounds for very long. I guess you could just buy another one

"Buying another one" is an option that I choose all to often.
My kids think that if I stopped spending so much money on guns I would spend more on them. How little they know.

I have one of those with the 20" barrel. Damn good shooter; maybe my favorite to shoot, although my Henry .357 is a hoot also. That tube fed thing doesn't bother me. No maurading Indians here abouts. Do you handload for it?

Henrys vary greatly in weight depending on round or octagon barrel, as it shows on their website specifications.

Of course. You'd just spend it on ammo, accessories, range fees and training, right? Like anyone else.

I just got the Henry recently so I haven't shot it yet. The indoor range near me does allow rifles on certain days so I hope to get it there soon. I have a Winchester Model 94 that I shot regularly when the San Gabriel outdoor range was still around.
I used to handload years ago and 45 Colt and 357 magnum were two of my regular loads. Lately I've been thinking about taking it up again.

Well, they don't whine too much because they know they're inheriting my guns some day. In fact, it's because I have three kids that I'm looking at the Taylor's for a third lever action. They'll pout if things don't work out evenly.

It's a good thing I didn't have five kids.
I recently bought two Taylor's 1873 SA revolvers to pair up with my Winchester and Henry. Now I have the Taylor's Smokewagon 357 magnum in jail so I'm looking at the Taylor's 357 lever action to pair up with the Smokewagon.
I've convinced myself that it not only makes sense but it's necessary.

OP, is this the rifle you ordered? If yes, she’s a beauty!

Just be persistent with Turners, you will be fine.

Those things look pretty handy alright. Did you shorten the stock on the bottom one? What is the LOP on it?

I think the top one may be the .45-70 as it has a longer barrel.

But that's why they are now going for crazy prices on GB...if the Navajo get the bid on Big Green, they are dropping consumer sales and going for military contracts, just like Colt did way back when. Then they want to make smart guns for the public...wait til our legislators get wind of that, it will be a new handgun roster requirement.

It sold for $1895. I don't need it for that price. If things continue like this I will just wait until next year or some year when things calm down. I can live without.

Was at the LGS yesterday. First time I'd been in since all this started. Surprised at the amount of firearms in stock. Lots of Kimbers and other semis, 5-10 whirlingpoppers of different interior bbl dimensions, LOTS of shotguns but very few rifles. Two bolts, two black rifles and 3 levers. A very nice Henry Long Ranger in .243, an Uberti 1873 in .357, (not quite as vibrant case coloring as ours above, but still a very NICE rifle), and an Uberti 1866 in .357. Plus they had an Uberti pump, their copy of the Colt Lightening that they don't make anymore also in .357. Of note was no price gouging. Prices were the same as I remember prior to pandemic/civil unrest. $12 and change for the 1873, $9 and change for the Henry. Same on the ammo I bought, what I would of paid prior.

^ ^ ^ Good to hear! And don't get me started on a replica Colt Lightning! I'd sure like to have one of those, but I've just shot my wad on a recent purchase.

To clarify, there are two different model Marlin in the above-posted photo.

The one above is a Model 1895 SBL, chambered in .45-70 Government. It has a longer receiver and a round bolt like the Model 336.

Below is the Marlin 1894 SBL (.44 Magnum) or the Marlin 1894 CSBL (.357 Magnum, the chambering that the OP has selected). Externally, they look exactly the same (save for the size of hole and perhaps the barrel o.d. - not sure).

If you give up their name/location, we can change that real quick...

Wait! What? I thought it already was.

I used to handload years ago and 45 Colt and 357 magnum were two of my regular loads. Lately I've been thinking about taking it up again.
GeeBee49, if decide to start handloading again, ask right here. Got a couple of loads for those two that will work nicely.
