I had a Marlin 1894 357 in my hands yesterday, and I was sorely tempted. I haven't been able to stop thinking about it since! It had a very short barrel on it, maybe less than 18"? It was in very good condition, about 95% I would say, with nice blonde wood, pretty straight grained. Blued steel.
Price was $499. What say ye? Yay or nay?
I've been looking for a mate for my Ruger GP100 357 for some time, and this is the first one I've seen on the used rack. Should I keep looking?

I ended up buying it at $499, but being Cabela's i had a coupon that saved me $50. That's what I like about them. Most of their prices are high, but if you are persistant they do have great deals. I talk to one of the guys at the local store a lot, and he tells me all the time about guns he bought and thought they were worth say $1000, but that's not his decision, so it gets tagged at $699 when the actual price should be like $850. That makes it well worth the time to check their inventory periodically. YMMV

I'm getting my first one, a .44 Magnum Carbine. Its $550, but comes with 4 boxes of ammo, 200 bullets, a bunch of 1x fired brass and 2 sets of dies, and a scope.
Wow! That's a great deal! I would buy another 1894 if I could find a reasonable one in 41 mag. Of course, then I would have to find a S&W to go with it. It never ends.:D
