Re: 1954 Winchester 94, is it a deal?

The finish is original as is all of the other features on it. A very nice carbine.
Although I don't think the price is great, I'd go the 9 C notes for that one before I'd buy a new japchester.

Re: Lee Classic Loaders @ Amazon

Some years ago I dug out my ancient original 30-30 Lee loader and for the heck of it I loaded a box.
It didn't take me but about one round to remember why I quit using them. I decided that if I ever use them again I'd pick up an arbor press and use that instead of a hammer.
