Who owned it? How was it used? Where has it been?
Its configuration is very appealing to me - rifle sized, yet relatively light weight; 24" octagonal barrel; chambered in 32-20 Winchester... Near perfect in my eye.
For the time it is in my possession it will get some use as the "ranch rifle," the silhouette slayer, the dinger ringer, the critter gitter and the headliner in my safe.

|The last time out the ol' 1894 tipped 31 targets over including a sweep of the pigs. The nut behind the trigger is to blame for the 9 left standing.|
