    Any Hope for the 1894 CB Rifle in .327 Federal magnum ?

    Hi
    I wanted a 1894 CB Rifle in .32 H&R Magnum when they were around, But sadly missed the boat. I was wondering if Marlin will come out with the new Federal .327 Magnum round in one ? They are a Lot Hooter round than the .32 H&R's were... Hammerdown

    Probably not. The 32 H&R did not sell so well. Many, like you, would have "liked to get one" but not so many actually did. Ever more so, especially since the sale of Marlin, it is about the bottom line -- what will sell. Why take a chance when people are always eager to buy each new variation of the 44 Mag, 30-30, and 45-70?
    Also, there may be some pressure issues with the 327 Fed. I do not know the "official" pressure, but suspect it is near or exceeds the limits for the 1894.
    Sorry. I hope I am wrong.

    No! 327 is not an Cowboy round. The Cowboy rifles were more or less built for Cowboy Action shooters and I doubt any of them want 327 since it would not be a legal round for the competition anyhow.

    A friend of a friend stopped to buy gas in a little border town (pop1800) recently and saw a sporting goods/tackle/feed store and went in to check it out. The shop had a new 32 H&R Marlin along with a few nice used 336's. The .32 had been there unsold for years and the owner was glad to let it go for $430.

    32/20 is better anyway.
    They might if the cartrige takes off but I doubt it will. Its reason for development was mostly to get 6 rounds in a small revolver like the SP101 with better ballistics than the 32 H&R.
    Its just speculation on my part but I think the ONLY reason we ever saw a 32 H&R chambered Marlin is because Marlin owns H&R. Personally I'd rather they make the 32/20 a regular production thing and pester Hornady to make 32/20 leverevolutions. I'd definately buy a new 32/20 if the price was reasonable.

    Hello
    The 32-20 is fine if you are thinking on the Lines of old school Cartridges, but Velocity wise, it Can't begin to compare to the new .327 Magnum. The .327 Magnum can be loaded Hotter than a .357 Magnum velocity, where you could not push a 32-20 that far without Case failure issues. Back when the 32-20 was Popular we saw lever actions built in it as many had handguns chambered in it, but when they turned the wick up on the 32-20 Cartridge we saw some handguns explode from the hotter rifle rounds so I doubt the 32-20 will catch on heavy again and the straight wall case of the Federal .327 Magnum is a lot easier to Re-load than the 32-20 Cartridges...Hammerdown

    I'm pretty sure that the 327 Mag puts out more pressure than the 1894 action is rated for.

    Re: Any Hope for the 1894 CB Rifle in .327 Federal magnum ?

    Just did a little research on the 327 Federal Magnum..

    The case is 1/8" (3 mm) longer than the .32 H&R, and the pressure, at 45,000 psi (310 MPa), exceeds that of the .357 Magnum and approaches the level of the .454 Casull.
    That's your reason right there that Marlin won't do a 1894 in 327 Fed Mag. Too much pressure. The 1894 is limited to around 40,000.
