IIRC:

"P" = ported (barrel), in the case of the M1894, a 16 1/4" bbl.
"C" = .357 chambering
"D" = .41 Mag chambering
"L" = 2/3 length mag
"CB" = Cowboy model
"S" = Sporter
"SS" = Stainless Steel
"LTD" = Limited (Edition)

I'm sure there's some I've missed.

AFAIK, The variations of M1894's have had barrels of 16 1/4". 20", 22", 24" - a couple of the lengths as octagon configs ILO round.

1894

Thanks. I've got an 1894c (in .357) w/ an 18 1/2" barrell, & would like a .44 just like it - what are my chances of finding one...?

Ok

Thanks. I know the 'cb' stands for cowboy. I've got a .357 with a 'c' - I think it means carbine, although I thought they were all carbines...

Some others...

"CL" = 218 Bee, 25-20 Win, and 32-20 Win
"FG" = 41 Mag
"S" = There was a "S" chambered in 45 Colt, similar to "P"

I thought the "S" prefex stood for the new cross bolt safety as the orginal M1894 didn't have this feature. As I have a M1894S in .41 Mag 20", straight grip, full magazine made in the late 80s which has the cross bolt safety.

There is also the
"PG"- .44 Mag with pistol grip, 20"
"FG"- .41 Mag with pistol grip, 20"
"DL"- New Deluxe version being offered this year

The M1894P was made with a 16 1/2" ported barrel and in both .357 and .44 Mag. That's the only shorter barrel in .44 Mag that I'm aware of.

I own a 1894p Marlin in .44mag/.44sp, it is 16.25" in length and ported. I believe it was a short run, and there could be some with out ports made.

You should be able to find a .44mag in 20". I have one, but it's a pre-1982 model, whatever that is. It has no safety and no checkering. I like it both of those ways.

The .44 you're looking for (it sounds like to me) is the "1894". You can check budsgunshop for prices though your local Walmart is likely to have the cheapest price to be found, outside of a major sporting goods store like Sportsmans or Cabelas. ANd even then, if they can beat Walmart, it won;t be by much.
