Only a little "blurb" about these in the latest "American Rifleman", but enough to get me interested. I like .32 mag so well in my revolvers that I'm considering buying one of these new Marlins. Anybody else? Might be fun. I wonder how long the barrel is? (Yes, I own larger caliber rifles. However these 1894's are SO nice. Ah..I'm hooked! :) ) I just can't get caught up. I need a Beretta "Storm" and now, a .32 mag Marlin.

http://www.marlinfirearms.com/firearms/leverActionCB_rifles/1894Cowboy-32.htm 20" barrel.....I personally think all marlin lever actions are very very nice guns and would not mind owning a pistol caliber to go along with my 45-70.

I got one on order at my local dealer. My guess is I'll have it May/June.

Right side eject, magazine is fed through the tube .22 stlye. Check tha Marlin link above... I'm curious about the "rwist rate" in the Marlin specs -- anyone got more solid info on this?

$595
