No difference. Has nothing to do with Colt firearms.

AnswerThe 1894-type rifles were usually chambered in the .45 Long Colt. Of course, since you rifle in peticular is a carbine, I would say more along the lines of .38 Special due to it's size. If necissary, you can measure the caliber of the rifle with a ruler. It will most likely be .45 if the barrel length is closer to half an inch. If not, just measure with the rule and use the numbers in terms of Millimetres. The width of a .32 is measured in 7.65 mm. Apples versus OrangesHang on there, Skippy. In the first place, a Marlin rifle, quality machine though it may be, has nothing to do with Colt firearms, even though it might be chambered for a cartridge named Colt. In the second place, the speed of a lever action rifle's cycle is dependent on the strength, speed and coordination of the user, not on the cartridge the rifle fires. There have been short-stroke lever actions produced that were quite a bit quicker than the standard type, like the Marlin 57 Levermatic. However, that action was not dependent on the cartridge it used to determine it's speed of cycling either. FYI.

Marlin has redesigned the Leveraction shooting the .32 H&R round. Loads through the magazine tube like many .22's and the original .32's....no loading port in the receiver. Marlin shortened the action on their newer .32 model. The .38 cowboy competition come from the factory 'slicked' up out of the box. A little polishing here and there will make it a whole bunch better. The .32 is capable of shooting the .32 magnum and the S&W Long. IT DOES NEED SLICKING UP out of the box. Shooting many thousands of rounds through these rifles, we have found them to be reliable when fed the proper ammo. SPEED?.... go to a Single Action Shooting Society (SASS) Match and se what speed is with a lever action. Marlin did NOT produce a lever action in .45 COLT until recently.
