    i have heard that the marlin lever action in 357 mag for cowboy action shooting can only take 9 rounds but the marlin web site says 10 + 1.
    i am only going to shoot 38 special anyway but i'd like to know for sure before i buy. does anyone know for sure

    Maybe it is 10 + 1 when loaded with .38 spl ammo.

    THIS IS A MARLIN MODEL 1894 COWBOY LIMITED 357 MAG/38SPCL LEVER ACTION CARBINE. IT HOLDS 10RDS AND HAS A 20"OCTAGON BARREL.

    THE METAL IS BLUED STEEL AND THE STRAIGHT GRIP STOCK IS SMOOTH AMERICAN BLACK WALNUT. MY GUNSMITH DID A SUPERB ACTION JOB ON IT SO IT IS READY FOR COWBOY ACTION SHOOTING. IT IS A PREOWNED GUN THAT IS IN MINT CONDITION. IT HAS A FEW MINOR HANDLING MARKS IN THE WOOD AND THE BLUING IS NEAR PERFECT. THESE HAVE BEEN ALMOST IMPOSIIBLE TO GET THE PAST FEW YEARS AND WITH THE MARLIN FACTORY MOVING MAY STAY THAT WAY.I WILL SHIP IT IN A BRAND NEW PLANO HARD CASE.

    So the 20" gun holds ten in the mag, the 18 1/2" holds nine. Where's the confusion?

    No confusion to me, I was just including a couple articles for your edification, since the question was asked above.
