If you reload, I find that 158gr lead semi-wadcutter 38 specials with a starting load of Clays powder are mouse fart / suppressor quiet our of my Rossi 92 lever action.

I haven't been able to reload in the last 6 years because of work. I stock up and shoot bulk PPU 38 special:

I ended up having some issues with the Henry. Mainly the lever kept dropping about two inches when firing .357. Sent it back to Henry for repair. Still did it. Other times the lever would get stuck and had to yank down pretty hard to get it loose. Guess I got a lemon. Ended up selling it to a gun shop.

I did find that the Remington 130gr FMJ's fed pretty well in the Henry. Compared to the .357 mag the shape and height of the bullet were closely matched.

Are there any issues with the Marlin 1894c?

I'm really diggin' that 1894CST, but man the price is crazy...

Pro's and con's to both, sadly I remember the downward spiral of Winchester to it's ultimate yard sale like demise. If you ever need parts for your 357 lever browning has them.
