I was cruising Gander Mt. the other day and came upon a nice looking 1894CB. I picked it up and of course immediately felt the need to own it. I wanted to do some research first though. I've used but never owned an 1894 Marlin out of all I've had. I noticed on the website it only lists the .45LC. Are they no longer producing it in .44magnum or something? It was priced at $850. I did notice it has the JM stamp on it. The only thing I have to critique is the wood. Fit/finish was fair, but it just wasn't too pretty compared to others I've had. Also, I'm wondering, what's a good maximum effective range of the .44magnum in that rifle? Any more than 100yards? I've never shot .44 beyond about 50 yards. I'd probably get a nice little tang sight for it if I purchase it.
