AuctionArms has a listing for an 1979 produced 1894C in .357 Magnum. The barrel is marked "MOD.1894-CARBINE-MICRO-GROOVE-CAL..357 Magnum". Interestingly the box and manual refer to it as an 1894C.
The photos of this rifle are some of the very best that I have seen on an auction site. Sharp, perfectly lit and well composed. If you want to see what a first year of production 1894 in .357 looks like, view these photos.

My 1982 model is the same configuration, right down to the barrel marking. Box and paperwork is long gone though.
Jack the Dog always has very good pictures with lots of close-ups, one of the reasons he usually gets top dollar for his offerings.
Well horse feathers!
Now I am wanting one.
Not a Marlin but a photo of a friends Derringer..............................
I bought one made in 1979 earlier this year. It looked exactly like that one and in as good condition. I sold it for $600 to get a 16" ported .357.
I had one just like it. Then I got really sick and had to sell it. Haven't touched a gun the last 7-8 years but luckily found another one just like mine 1 1/2 years ago. Shoots great.

That's probably not the correct box.

I found a very nice 1894 .357 Mag., made in 1980, at a local show this past April. After adding a Skinner sight it has quickly become one of my favorite Marlins, surprisingly accurate and an absolute blast to shoot. Love the looks of the dovetailed front sight behind the barrel band.

I much prefer the older ones with the sight behind the bands & dovetailed into the barrel, over the ramps in front of the band.
Got mine from one of these gun boards, here or Leverguns.com, dont remember at the moment but these two sites sure added alot of hardware to my gun room the past few years.
