I probably should have asked this before I started bidding on the 1894c today. It is chambered for 44 magnums. Having avoided any guns that start with 4, I know precious little about them. Background noise and a brief web search leads me to believe that this is correct, but would like to hear from some knowledgeable members here. Itseems to me that this is somewhat akin to shooting 38s in my 357s.
