    Yep...thats all I shoot in them.

    Lots of original Winchester around, BUT they are really too valuable to shoot a lot. Ones in good condition bring over 3 grand. Hell the 94 your shooting is worth at least $1500, maybe more.

    I was just looking at an original 1873 at cabelas for $3200. It was in decent shape but nothing special. I paid $1200 for my 1894 in 2004. I have seen them priced at $1500 or more that were not near as nice as mine is.

    What a neat gun, and a great story, I really enjoyed reading it.
    My mind is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives.

    That was a Great story thank you so much for sharing. Definitely very cool to do it with an older gun like that and a great sense of accomplishment. Sorry to hear about that rancher he seemed like he would be a cool guy to sit down with and talk for hours about all the stories he had.

    Great story and experience. Thanks for sharing and sorry to hear about your friend. Some of those old ranchers leave a big hole in the world when they pass on, he will be missed.
