I've wanted a Marlin 1894 in .357 magnum probably right after I got my Ruger GP100 back in the early 1990s. For whatever reason, I never saw a .357 mag 1894 in person when I had the money to spend. That was until earlier this year when I came across a gloriously modernized new 1894 CSBL in a gun shop. I made it mine, and it may be the one long gun I keep until the day I meet my maker. I'm holding off on buying more guns unless I part with at least one or two that don't get used much. But my current wish list is a S&W 686+ 3" barrel, Spanish FR8 in top shape, and still an IMI Timberwolf. Reality will be that I get the S&W some day and let the others be just a dream.
