A friend asked if I could give him anymore information about a JM rifle he ran across, and it left me a little perplexed. I thought the only factory short barrel 357 Mags were ported (CP) or stainless Davidson's exclusives, but this one looks factory to me. First 2 digits are 07. Any insight from a smarter MO'r? :biggrin:

Seeing how it has the front sight dovetailed into the barrel, it may be old enough to have been sent back to the factory and had a shorter barrel installed?

Would they mark it anywhere if it was done at the factory?

Customized! 1894CS should have an 18" or 18.25" bbl. But yeah there was an 1894 CS, original early (Before HB safety) 1894C, after HB safety introduced 1894CS.
