The bore is bright and the crown is good. At first I thought the crown was damaged but it shoots great. The screws haven't been tampered with, the only screws damaged are the ones that the saddle ring hits and they are slightly flat with the slit perfect.

I'm looking at another 94 made in 1959 but the seller is asking too much. Mine is a pre-29.

I like the 92 Win better then 94 ........... But if you want a smooth action the 1873 Win is tops , It only comes in pistol cal like the 92 Win . Since you are a paper puncher you will never shoot your other lever guns once you own a 73 . The toggle system isn't strong but it is smooth and fast . I don't think you can wear one out and they disassemble for cleaning and lubing super easy .

TGR, you are a bad influence on me...........and thats good. I'll look into the 73.

As a lefty I've found lever actions are easier to cycle than a bolt action but being top ejectors I'm getting a lot of brass in the face.

If you are interested I will sell my 1873 Beretta , This is a factory race gun for SASS/CAS matches with $300 short stroke kit installed at factory . The Beretta are custom made in Uberti factory with all Uberti parts but Beretta builds them . The 20" 1873 are super hard to find , the 24" barrels are everywhere . I shot maybe 100 rounds in gun . $800 will buy it .

Nice looking. Give me a day or two and I'll let you know. I just bought $600 in leather for my guns and $200 in ammo so am approaching my monthly limit.

That gun is hand checkered and I have box .......... I'm in no hurry to sell it and I could change my mine and not sell it . I have a new tang sight made for it . The tang needs 1 hole drilled and tapped for it $75 for it if you want it .

Another problem (other than I've spent this months $$$) is that I don't have any place to put another long gun. All my safes are full and I have four that aren't in a safe. I might have to sell a few just to make room for more.
