    I like the leather work, classy. I'm not a fan of the big loop though. Have you shot it?

    I just ordered a 1894 in .44mag can't wait to shoot it. I like the leather ammo holder on teh butt where did you get it and how much $$?

    Very nice. I don't generally like the big loops, but for cold weather, they are handy, I suppose. I recently picked up a '95 myself and it is a ball to shoot.

    Where does a feller go about finding a piece of leather like that to work on?

    The loop is a Wild West Guns. you con get them at Midway or Cabela's. I got the leather at Leather Unlimited ph:1-800-993-2889. If you wont to make one order vegetable bellies it an 7 to 9 oz 6-8 sq foot order # is af1550 the price $19.00 in my old book the price might have gone up now. To make one you need to get some stiff paper and cut it out to fit your stock don't for get to do one for the but. After you cut your leather rap it around your stock tape it in place, now place the butt leather in place. Now use a marker to mark you holes marks to sew them together. With it on the gun mark your holes for the laces. Get a drill and use a small drill bit to drill your holes in the leather (take the leather off your stock) you can sew it up with heavey thread or you can use dental floss clear work the best. I used leather shoe lacer to lace the cover to the stock, drill the lace holes bigger than the laces. Now sew it like a baseball. The loops you will need to cut the leather into to make it thiner if you wet it you can form it better, drill two holes per loop and sew. To fit it to the stock wip your down with some oil wet the leather now is the time to inbose it with eny shape you would like (I used bear feet on the side and a bear body on the but.) if it dryed out rewet and pull it over your stock and lace up. Let dry over night take off wipe stock down and reinstall.

    I hand load my rounds with 300gr hp, and zero it at 50yds using an 6"steel gong your wont miss 99% of the time. The recoil is not hard on you a bit more than an 22 but less than a 458win mag. In close quarter like pines its great.
