1894 Rarity? 32 H&R ....

Post by miker557 » Wed Mar 18, 2015 2:07 pm

Recently I saw an 1894CB in a local shop chambered in 32H&R Magnum. Instead of a loading port, it has a telescoping tube, like a 22 rimfire. My question - how rare are these, and what is a good price for one? The local shop has it for just under $2k, which seems a bit much, even considering the prices that CB's are getting these days .........

Miker557;

The 1894 CB in .32 H&R Magnum caliber was made from 2004 to 2006. It was made in limited numbers, but I cannot tell you how many were made at this time. Is it worth $2,000.00? Not in my books as it is a newer production gun. Maybe half that would be about right for a limited production gun of new manufacture if it is new in the box.
Due to the increasing cost of ammunition, there will be no warning shot!

Thanks for the info .... I figured the price was a bit inflated, but not that much. Usually when a clean 1894 CB shows up at local shows, it's in the $900-$1200 range, and that's one of the more common calibers (that's what they're asking - no telling what they're actually getting for the things) .....
