I guess what really matters is the "JM" proof stamp on the barrel, not the stock they're wearing. I agree, though, the fit and finish of mine is 2nd to none!

The Big 5 guns were a special run, but I have not seen that they bring any more than the standard rifles of the same vintage. Most likely because of the birch stock. Nothing at all wrong with birch, but collectors usually prefer walnut.

My 1894C is one of the Big 5 guns that Marlin made around 05. It's amazing. Here she is with my Blackhawk in the same caliber.

Yep, that's exactly what mine is. Pretty guns for sure!

You've got a special pair right there.

A Marlin 1894c and S&W 686 chambered in 38 spcl/357 magnum. They both love eating H110 with Hornady FP/XTP's.

I am on my third...keep getting sellers remorse! Plan on hanging on to this one. Should have kept the last as it was a rare 1894CP....factory ported! Rare...but regretfully sold....large pesos too...

I am always looking for these little rifles as well. Fortunately two of the pre safety 1894c's live in my safe right now and they are really fun to shoot. If you're happy with what you paid thats all that matters. I don't think you'll see prices fall thats for sure.

I just picked up this one at a local shop this week. Pre-safety, 1979, I think...
