As I've been adding to the 1894 collection thread, I thought it might be good to start a different thread for people to put comments into.  So please, speak up!  Do you like the thread?  Which are your favorite models?  Is this just a waste of time?  I'd love to get some feedback.

Hope you're enjoying it!

I like it! There are so many different ones I'm curious to see them all!

That's what I have so far to show.  I look forward to any pictures other members are willing to share!  You don't have to send them to me, but you certainly can.

By the way, I've been adding to the sections I've already posted, as opposed to making a new post for every new gun.  So if you're looking at the thread, remember to go back to page 1 and see what's new there as well!

I just checked against my "known list of 1894s", and found we have pictures of 21 out of 28!  Not bad at all!  I know there are probably versions I don't have on my list, but this is a better start than I could have hoped for.  Still looking for the rest, so if you have any not yet pictured, please send pictures!  

Thank you!

Had no idea this would be the result of our simple question...HOW MANY???
 Now I wonder if any  of the members can help me out here.
Two years ago at the Findlay, Ohio "TOYS THAT GO BANG" show I was introduced to a fella who was referred to as "The 1894 expert". I can't recall his name...maybe SHAWLEY but that's just a guess.
He is from North Western Ohio and supposedly knows everything there is about the 1894. Would be great if we could get him involved.

Just a note to say some new guns have been added: A different Cody museum, a Friends of the Daisy Museum, and the JC Penny's Commemorative!

Enjoy, and please, if you have pictures of any that have been missed, please send them or point them out.  Thanks!

Fantastic pictures, I have seen quite a few I didn't know existed. Thanks for all the work you put into this.

Let's keep this going...
How about a "Bucket List".
Maybe a list of variants we know (think) exist, even though we do not have pics.

BurghDude,  Good job on posting the pictures of your 1894's.  If I think of any I will post to the site.  This is a good way to let everyone know that there is such a variety of this model.  I'm working on a identification list and pictures of the changes over the years from 1961 to 1986.  There's very little info on production changes so I'm going off registration numbers.  I have 35 guns apart now for identification, cleaning and resealing, all are tagged and bagged.  I can compare the changes with other guns the same year and try and narrow it down.  I have about 80 1894's, most being stock rifles and some of the commemoratives that are pictured here.  This is what these forums are all about.  I will post the pictures and changes when I have compiled everything.

Dennis...I thought I had way to many 1894's. !!!!!!
Would be interested in hearing about that massive collection.
How, why, when they all "work"?
