Yesterday I was at Scheels in Coralville and looked at a brand new 1895 CB. It was the first good one that I have seen since the JM days and I look at them everyplace I go. When Remington first started to build them the octagon barrels almost look round. This one had nice sharp edges on the barrel like an old 1800"s winny. The rest of the outside was perfect but I don't like the stock finish they are using. I need to see more like this one before I can say the quality has returned for sure. I'm just happy to have a JM 1895 CB.
