I was at the flea market today and I saw a Winchester 1894 carbine chambered in 30-30. I have always wanted a lever action rifle and this one seemed nice. The rifling was in good condition, but it had some surface rust. I really don't care though, I prefer a gun that needs a little bit to bring it to life. Anyways, so I was looking at this lil beauty and noticed it was for 275$. I almost made him an offer for 250, but I do not know much about these guns so I thought it safe to wait. The gun made it through the day w/o getting sold and the dude is a regular so I will see him on Saturday more than likely. Anyways, I need to know a few things about this weapon. #1 Is it a good gun? #2 Is the 30-30 round cheap/inexpensive and abundant, or am I going to pay through the nose for some fun with this rifle? #3 Is 275/250 a good price for this weapon? #4 What are some things I need to look for to clue me in that this gun is no good? Well, thanks again to all of you gun gurus!
