NIB 444 Mod 94 Carbine $838. Took it out to shoot it afterwards, didn't get to do much as we were in a shadeless pasture(hot sumbitch) . I did learn that my original loads I loaded 4 years ago when I first started the search for this gun were failures. The Lyman 350 gr FNGC (429649)won't even feed into the magazine with R-P brass. Nor will they chamber in the breach. This gun's got a very short leade into the rifling. The one round I tried in the chamber wouldn't come close to going in all the way, then when I went to remove it, the bullet stayed in the barrel. I loaded some 290 gr FNGC cast from an older Lyman 429640 mold (same profile as the current devastator HP but sans the HP) And they worked loaded in Hornady brass, but OAL is too much in R-P brass. Also shot a few 240 gr JFN's and JHP's in front of 50 grains of Winchester 748. No signs of problems there. I'll have to wait to see how they group later, they did hit where aimed though. I don't care for the crossbolt safety at all, it looks like crap, but that will be removed when time and money permit. The forearm to receiver fit is crap too, there's a 1/32 gap that shouldn't be there. The fold-down rear sight, folds down under heavy recoil too. Gonna have to replace that with either a std 94 ramp sight or a receiver sight. Recoil reminds me of the Mod 1886 carbine I had for a short time. Overall, I think it would have been better for Winchester to have chambered this round in an 1886 rifle, as recoil would be lessened and heavier bullets would be better accomodated. Not sure this gun was worth the wait.
