Are the threads the same? I'd like to put a .38-55 Bbl on my 1895CB and have it rechambered to 38-56 Improved. Anyone know if the threads are identical or not?

glich,
I have one of the 38-55CB's, and an 1895S,,,,, been thinkin' exactly the same cartridge. Almost certainly the same threads, I believe the only changed thread pattern is in the new 450M. 1894 barrels are also that same thread, and modern Marlin barrels will go right into 1893's.
Got a reamer for the project????
Cheers,

Nope, no reamer yet. Still toying with several ideas. Possibly a 444 converted to 411 JDJ or better yet, an 1895 in 416 Barnes. Lots of great cartridges out there. :)
