    They are a lot of fun to shoot.

    Nice looking guns Swampman.
    I especially like the backdrop.
    You guys are giving me the itch for an 1894 chambered in 357.
    Don't know if'n that's a good thing or a bad thing??????

    550.00 is about right.
    Right now GunBroker has one for 340.00. Might be worth looking at.
    Forget the GB gun it is a POS

    $500-550 is the going rate in my neighborhood - if you can find one!

    OP- nice combo! I paired mine with an S&W Model 28 (sorry, no pictures until I get a new camera)

    The shops around me never have anything good. It's all tools and poorly cared for shotguns.

    My next new purchase will be a Henry Big Boy in 38/357. My dad was a cop in the day, and 38s and then 357s are what I grew up with. For years my combat gun was a SAA in 357. Until recently I figured it was all the hand gun I needed. When I decided I needed a bit more fire power I stepped up to a 7 shoot double action revolver. My desire for the Big Boy is to team it with the SAA. I load these cartridges and have begun experimenting with them. They are very flexible, and can be loaded for many uses, all the way from black bears to rabbits. When you consider the energies the round is capable of, but with manageable recoil compared to the other magnums they are hard to beat.

    Yea...my very first gun was a S&W Model 19 Combat Magnum ( K frame ), blued with 6" barrel, TT, RR WO...

    Then my second buy was a used S&W Model 13 ( K frame ), nickeled with a 3" bull barrel.

    Sold the M19 ( still regret that ), but I kept the M13.

    Gotta love a .357 magnum !!

    Nice combo. Mine are 1894, 2 1/2" S.&W. Model 66 & a 4" S.&W. Model 66. All in .357. Had a 4" S.&W. Mod. 28 Highway Patrolman. Screwed up & gave it to my ladyfriend for Christmas 2010. Ladyfriend & Highway Patrolman are long gone. Wish I'd kept the Highway Patrolman.

    Too bad on the 28, probably more dependable than the ladyfriend.

    way more dependable than a girlfriend! i had a chance several years ago to buy a M28 with a 6" barrel, but he sold it before i got a chance to buy it. those M28's are great pistols.

    The 1894 is "deer legal" here & they're really having good success with it in .357.
