    We used to salivate over the Model 57. Now, they'd jail me for 5 years for touching one... protect that 2A guys, when its gone, its gone.

    "A little story about the 1894S .41 Magnum. I bought one new in 1987, when I lived in los Angeles. A couple or three years later the NRA had its national convention in Anaheim, about 40 miles from L.A. I attended. There were many exhibitors there, Marlin Firearms being one of them. I stopped and talked with a couple of guys at the booth. One worked at the factory and the other was a regional rep for Marlin. I mentioned ny .41 Mag. and how much I liked it, being a perfect companion to my S&W 57.

    They both asked me if I wanted to sell it? I said I didn't but then asked if they wanted one, why they just didn't go down on the factory floor, pick one up, do the paper work and take it home?

    They said that Marlin only made 1,200 of the 1894S .41 Mags and they were mighty hard to find. Both gave me their business cards and said if I ever wanted to sell it, give them a call and they'd be glad to take it off my hands.

    I still have it ... and my S&W 57.

    "

    FWIW.

    They certainly are not common but I have seen far more 1894S models than the 1894FG. I wanted an FG and it took quite awhile for all the stars to line up before I got one. I could have had an 1894S numerous times. Curious if that 1200 total figure includes all .41 mags or just the straight stock version and if so, how many FG's were made??

    Not my grail guns but they are at the top end of the list!

    M1RifleNut, I couldn't tell you the answer to your question. I posted what the two Marlin employees told me.

    I stand corrected. After further investigation the .41 Mag "S" was made between 1984-2000 and only 1040 were built.

    The FG was made one year 2007 and the number was much smaller.

    My FG is a 2004 Model also. Serial Number starts with 96. I believe the FG was made from 2003-2007. The S model from 1984-1990
