I am off work today due to a good layer of ICE then 6" of snow on top of that.
People up North, don't laugh. I know you guy's know what and how to operate in snow. But in my state especially the southern part of the state we never ever get snow hardly. I have lived in Kentucky 12 years now and a light dusting that is gone in a couple of hours once a year is usually all we get. Any way work was closed today due to the weather so I finally got a chance to get my Marlin 1894CB out for some pictures. I put on a Skinner Peep Sight and Lyman 17A front Globe Sight. I really enjoy this set up on several of my lever actions. I have this on 3 out of my 7 Lever action rifles. The rest have 1 with XS sight rail and3 with Williams peep and regular front Hooded sight.
Here she is 2009 model at the end of the New Haven run before NY move.

Very nice. What's the difference between a regular 1894C and the CB? Is it basically the octagon barrel?

iobjr,
Welcome to the forum. I believe that you take the first two digits of the serial # and subtract it from 100 and that will give you the year it was made. So yours would be a 2001 model year I believe.
