I like the furniture on that 1894, Great Rifle and you will enjoy it.
My 18 year old daughter was never interested in shooting. I had a few lever guns out one day and she Loved my 1894. She was so proud when she hit a swinging metal target for a .22 dead center at 25 yards and put a hole in it. She kept it and loved shooting it. I hope she shoots with me some more. My 1894 is one of my favorites and I am sure you will enjoy yours as much.
This is my Marlin Model 1894 I purchased new back in the mid 80's. I mounted a Leupold Vari-X II 2-7X in Leupold rings and bases. It's been a good shooting rifle. Mine is minus the checkering and gold trigger.
