Does any know how many Marlin 1894CB 38 Special were made? I’m not talking about the Cowboy Competition one, this one is the standard 20” Cowboy gun.
Well I bought one of Gun Broker, should get it Friday!The only "JM" 38 S&W Special Cowboy's listed in Marlin catalogs were the Cowboy Competition models (with the case colored receivers). These were made from 2002 to 2005 (serial prefix 98 to 95).
There were "JM" 357 Magnum/38 S&W Special, offerings starting in 1997 thru 2009, and later REM marked and MR marked rifles. But all of these were 357/38.
None of the Davidson's special runs were chambered in 38 S&W Special.
NOW, I did find a 2002 model 1894CB that was chambered in 38 S&W Special only. I bought it and believe that although it was correct from the factory, NIB... it was an odd ball. Never was in the catalog in this configuration. So.... never say never!
