    Am I the Only one... ?

    ... who would buy an 1894 in .327 Federal Magnum (if one were ever produced)?

    I don't think I would, Fred. I like my .357 just fine.

    I personally can't see the purpose other than higher cost of ammo, and much harder to find. I can understand why it was developed as a defensive handgun cartridge, but I can't see switching to this caliber in a carbine.

    Probably. The 357 is pretty ubiquitous!

    I think I would go for one...sort of like a modern .32-20. but with stronger brass.

    I would buy one.

    Of course, that would mean I would have to buy a revolver chambered for the cartridge also.

    And brass...lots of brass!

    Ever since I first heared about the .327 Fed Mag I've been interested in it. In a hand gun I think it's a great little round and I'd love to see what it would do in an 1894c.

    I've heard rumors that the .327 Fed. won't survive. It's not gaining any popularity, and the long delay in actually getting it marketed is sealing it's doom. Along with the estimated price of factory ammo.

    You can already get a 32/20 or 32Mag. Personally it dont interest me much.
