I finally ran into an 1894CB in 32 MAG today. I have been looking for a couple of years. No Box and No Papers but gun looks like NIB. Seller claimed it was someones safe queen. 2005 production from the seriel number. Had to give $515.00 but it is worth it to me. I picked up 500 new starline .32 HR Mag cases at the same time. Have enough 32 lead for a lifetime anyway. (already load for .32 acp, .32 SW short, .32 SW long, and .327 Fed Mag) I needed (as in really really wanted) the 1894 CB .32 mag to round things out.

Now the very next question, has anyone had a gunsmith ream these out for the .327 mag brass? (I have about 1000 pieces of the 32 mag brass). Since I have the HRM brass too, it's no big deal, but, if the action would hold it, this 20" barrel would really bring out the .327 mag brass.

congrats on the new gun..PICTURES!!!

the 1894 can handle a 357mag just fine so why not the 327? what are the dimensional differences between the 32 mag and 327mag?

I will try on some pictures cause SHMBO now has one of those digital camaras. I think I can get it from the camera to the computer. I do want to be able to post pictures, so this will be the first try. thanks rc

I went to a gunshow yesterday and there was not one CB in the whole place. Ended up getting a Ranch Hand in 45lc instead. Maybe next time.......
