Welcome from NE Pennsylvania! You sure found the right place if you have any questions about your 1894C. I've got an
1894C from 1979 (bought new) and an 1894CBL from 1999 (bought used from an estate sale) and of course both are in
357 Magnum. Shoot mostly cast bullets out of both even though the 1894C has a micro groove barrel on it, and it shoots
my cast bullets just great. Velocity ranges from 1450fps to 1960fps with supreme accuracy.
Hi Dazz, I am from northeast Florida near Jacksonville. Welcome aboard. We have an International MarlinOwners site. Look in and maybe you will be able to contact someone who lives near you. You may even be able to meet each other. Marla
