This is the 1894 that I shared in the “Show Us Your Beaters” thread.  It’d been used hard and seriously “Bubba-ised”, but it’s a 25-35 with a good bore, so I couldn’t stand not trying to get it shooting again.

Mark, I love the instructional videos.  I don’t work on guns unless I really need to.  I need some more training.

Good job! Not a reason in the world that old gun shouldn’t shoot again. Glad you realized that and made it happen. Maybe you could save that old lever and tube to build “Bubba’s gun” someday from all the mangled parts that accumulate.

Mark, another enjoyable video!  Way to go.  I, too, enjoy instructional videos.  I dare say I also thoroughly enjoy shooting my .25-35’s.  I have two.  I shoot them almost exclusively at our metallic silhouettes.  The draw back is the light bullet does not consistently take down the ram silhouette at 200 yards, and usually it takes several hits to walk the buffalo silhouette back enough on its base for it to go down.  Hits sound nice (and follow the muzzle report quickly with this caliber), but the target has to fall to count and score!  I do enjoy them though often the “not falling” part puts me out of running for any placement.  TimLaugh

Thanks guys!  Like Tim, I really like the 25-35’s, so it was great fun to put this one back into working order and take a few shots with it.  Mark
