My 1894CB in 45 Colt has smooth stocks.

In another thread, someone mentioned that it might not have the original stocks as most 1894CBs have checkered stocks.

What is the thinking of the group on this? Did 1894 CB's come with both smooth and checkered at different times?

BTW, mine is a 2009 version with 20 inch barrel.

My 2007 Marlin 94 in 45Colt 20" CB is smooth stocked. It seems more of the 20" ones were smooth and the 24" checkered, but that is only my observation.

I looked at my 2009 catalog and it shows that the Cowboy's (1894 and 1895) had smooth stocks. Then I got curious and according to the catalog, all the Cowboys made the switch to smooth stocks in 2002.

BTW, a little trivia... It appears the 1895 Cowboy was introduced in 2001 and it was the only Cowboy with a smooth stock in 2001. So it seems the 1895 Cowboy always had a smooth stock, at least that's what the catalog show :)

None of the cowboys had pistol grip stocks. That wood was changed the same time as the trigger plate was changed. Sure does look nice. I want to do the same to my Cowboy.

I went back and read what I wrote, and then I thought but I have a 26" 1895CB with plain wood also. I think its six of one and a half dozen of the other. But the OP was talking about the Model 1894.

My 1894 CB in .357 is smooth and straight-just like me. Bought it in 2009.

Never say Never, Bob. I have seen them, although I think my rifle has been changed. No matter....I like it. But is it worth a thousand dollars?

dhansen,

The receiver is a 1996 model and it was converted to a 44-40 Cowboy by a friend at Marlin in 2008.

Sniper,

That is a 44-40 24" Century Limited octagon barrel on that receiver with special cresent buttplated high grade wood.. The tang sight has been extended and is inlayed into the stock with the front screw in the tang and the back screw in the stock. Plenty of room for the hand to fit the stock.

Thanks for asking.
