It has the cap. Its just like the 357 and 44 cowboys that you can buy now. Accept it has a 24" barrel and the stock is checkered .

I have one of the Marlin CNLTD rifles in 44-40. But, I would also like to have one like yours, to use as a every day shooter.

If you don't mind looking, could please tell me the exact model of your rifle. The reason is, is that I have seen a Marlin 1894, in 44-40, with a round barrel and the barrel band forend. I would rather have the 24" octagonal barreled model, with the forend cap.

Thanks in advance.

Stillwater , the one I've bought is a 1894 Cowboy or Cowboy II . It was made from 97-99. It has 24" octagon barrel , checkered stock , full length mag and forend cap. The round barrel version is a 1894S I believe. They had 20" round barrels and barrel bands. They also made a speciel run of 325 Cowboy Carbines for Davidsons in 2000 , these rifles were octagon barreled 20" , with full mag , forend cap and uncheckered. One of those would be nice to have also :wink: The one I've bought is just like yours but without the engraving or as much figure in the wood . I've looked at a couple like yours but have yet to get one. I can't just have it and not shoot it :? And they are a little to expensive for an every day shooter :!:

Guns America had two yesterday.

I paid $1195.00 for mine. I really like the rifle, however, everytime I think about shooting it, I pick it up, wipe it down, put it back and then get one of the others.

Picked up the 44-40 today. Man was I happy, the gun was definitly NIB . The cartons they packed the guns in when this was new were stapled shut and this one was still stapled. Popped the box open , and the 44-40 still had heavy grease on the outside.
