1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    I think you should be meaning 1984 CB for the Cowboy model since you want 20" plus the octagon bbl.

    Bought my wife one two years (1894 CB) in 357. It took about 200.00 total with shipping to get it usable and as slick as we wanted it. They seem to come out of the factory now days being very rough and difficuly to load let alone a female. Mine went to well known "Longhunter" in Texas who is a Cowboy gunsmith and it was the best money I ever spent.

    That's too bad. I have an old Cowboy 1894 in 45 Colt, and it's glass smooth, and was that way out of the box.

    I have a couple of Marlin Cowboy's. My favorite is my 1894 in 45LC. Load that gun up with some cowboy loads and have fun plinking about the place. It'll also thump the daylights out of a deer with good hunting loads.

    I also have a 45/70 cowboy, but I don'y know if it'll ever get shot enough to make the action as butter smooth as it could be.
