    I've got an 1894C that nicely compliments my pair of Smith & Wesson Model 66 revolvers. Since there are countless tubular magazine .22 rimfire rifles out there that will accept .22 Short, .22 Long and .22 Long Rifle cartridges interchangeably, would it be much of a struggle to adapt an 1894C to accept .38 Short Colt and .38 Long Colt ammunition along with the .357 Magnum and .38 Special ammunition it already accepts? This would make an already versatile carbine even more versatile. I could load it once with .38 Short Colts and not have to reload again during the squirrel season.
