I just picked up an 1894 CB Limited in .41 mag.
The serial number is CCL00XXX.
From what I can figure out, the gun was made in 1945.
Is that correct?

Looks correct, hard to say value without seeing pictures. BTW, welcome to MO from central Florida!

Why you're here and since you picked up an 1894, why don't you stop by this thread and join Team 1894?

Glad you made it here!

Thanks for the welcome. I actually own a 1894 CB in .357 also. Its still in the box. Ive always wanted the .41 mag.
As for the shape of the 41 mag, the stock has a couple small nicks, otherwise the gun is perfect.
I just diddnt think Marlin made these guns until the "80's". Thats why I am confused on the serial number.

THANKS! Based on that info, the gun is #912 of 1001.

Do you know if the 1894 CB 357's were a limited run?
Mine has the 24" octagon barrel with "limited" stamped on it but I dont know if the production was limited or its just a name.

Your suspected production date of your 1894 CB Limited, is simply and clearly incorrect, given w/ 41 Magnum cartridge was introduced in 1964 by the Remington Arms Company, intended for hunting and law enforcement purposes.

Well that's one way to introduce yourself.
