I told my Dad about it on the phone last night. He said he has always liked them. Today he called and said he bought it. He said he had to pay asking price and they threw in a box of shells. The shop owner said he wished they still made them, as he could sell a dozen every year. He said he couldn't believe how light the recoil was, and he hunted with a model 94 for about 30 years. I have started reloading recently. I look forward to cooking up some pointed loads for it. Grandpa is pretty excited for my daughter. What is more fun than buying a new gun.
