Howdy!  I'm thinking about the merits of trying to find a discontinued Cowboy II in .357/38 that has the 24" barrel or just setteling for the new standard 1894 that comes wi the 20" barrel in just the .38 Spl.  What do yo'all think?  Any and all comments valued and appreciated.  Thanks.

The current CB's in the 20" barreled version are basically the same as the CB II/24" barreled ones, except for barrel length. The strictly .38 version is the CBC. It also has a case color frame instead of a blued  one. I have both, a CB in .45 and a CBC in .38 Spec., they both have been almost flawless in operation.
 Unless you just HAVE to have the case colors( why I have mine), the standard CB will work just fine and leave you a little cash left over to do some smthing if you want an action job. Like most lever guns, they can be OAL sensitive at times. None of mine have been, but still they can be from one unit to another. We have two .38 Marlins, the aforementioned CBC and an 1894 CS( round barrel carbine). The CS has fed anything we've put in it..........................Buck Cool Roll Eyes Wink

I might be slow, but I'm mostly accurate.....
