Not one that is well versed in the Model 1895's, however I love the styling and of course it being a lever action, as well as the caliber selection to boot!

Beautiful collection you have Sir to say the least!  I admire you for your dedication in obtaining a fine 1895 in all those caliber's as well.  We all have our own niche in collecting, as well as caliber's and such.

I am not to far from what you described about yourself in beginning collecting I want something of everything it seems.  I do have myself a Model I am leaning towards as well, but even that may change as time goes bye.

You certainly are an inspiration to us all, thanks for sharing!

David,  Thanks for the kind words.

A word of caution though - when you find your collecting niche, it can become a passion (or compulsion) and pretty soon, any disposable income you may have had is tied up in guns. 

Alas, there are a whole lot worse investments.  Although, my wife reminds me from time to time that they are only an investment if you are going to sell them someday. That logic is somehow lost on me. Confused
