a pretty basic question but I have never seen a reason why the .38 and .44 carbine magazines are attached to the barrel differently than .25 and .32’s. Thanks from a new member

The diameter of the barrel and magazine tube on the .38 & .44 caliber carbines is nearly symmetrical in relationship to the barrel, whereas the magazine tube diameter on the .25 & .32 caliber carbines is significantly smaller. The forward barrel band used on the .38 & .44 caliber Model 1892 carbines was also a carry-over from the Model 1873 Carbines.

The 1892 carbine barrel band for the .38-40 and .44-40  will interchange with all five calibers in  the model 1894 carbine.  It will not work on the model 1873 carbine, as the barrel diameter at the muzzle is slightly larger.

Hello,

The magazine diameter on the 25-20 and 32 WCF is 2mm narrower than on the 38 and 44 WCF magazines.
