So I picked up a marlin 1894 cowboy carbine LTD in .45 today. Is this the same as what folks are listing as a cowboy limited? I only know enough about Marlins to be dangerous. It does has a readable JM stamp and not the REP on the barrel. Looked nice so I got it. Now of course I am wondering just exactly what I Purchased. I have seen the longer cowboy marlins but never a shorter one. Luckily my friend did have a box of .45 colt ammo to shoot when I got home and this thing is really a fun shooter. Sorry if this has been cover to death already and thanks to those who can provide any info.
