MARLIN .38 – .357 LEVER ACTION MODEL 1894C RIFLE.

An Original North Haven, Connecticut ‘MARLIN’ Marlin .38 Special – .357 Magnum Model 1894C Under Lever Action Rifle AND PRE ‘Gremlin’. As such a GOOD ONE and this CERTAINLY IS. An 18 ½” (470mm) Barrel Still in Original Condition other than the missing Rear Open Sight. NOT a lot to replace and I will very likely have one here anyway if needed. However, OBVIOUSLY this has been scoped up previously and is likely to be so again. (The ‘modern way’ for many OR necessity for those with eyesight not as good as it once was)! Stock pull is at approx. 13 5/8” (347mm) and brings in an overall length of 35 ¾” (918mm). Bare weight shows at 6 Lbs 4 ¼ oz (2.844 Kg).

****PLEASE NOTE: THE LEVER DOES  stay in correct possition against the stock. It was as pictured PURELY for images / showing safe etc.

Safety is with either or both options: A Cross Action Pin through the action housing itself and / or with the hammer at Half Cock position. Either and both stop the trigger releasing the hammer.

A Very Nicely Decorative Well Patterned American Walnut Stock with Good Colour Contrast. ZERO real marks, dents or dings to detail anywhere to wood or metal too. The loading gate is showing Very Light signs of use to date but the original finish is till circa 98% right up to the edge. I can imagine 100 rounds pushed in WOULD show more wear than what’s here! There is also ZERO swagger to the hand guard / action lever when fully open. Its basically as good, if not even better, than it looks. The Cocking Lever after-market Spur is also evidence of a scope and a handy free addition. EASILY swapped for Left or Right Handed use so perfectly good from either shoulder and a 100% Ambidextrous Rifle.

A MORE than Nice enough example of THE most sought after Pistol Calibre Range gun / rifle.

I also AGREE with most out there. These Pre-Remington involvement examples are FAR SUPERIOR to even the new ‘good’ versions being imported. As such mini investments in their own rights. IF you doubt that just do some research and see what money REAL vintage examples fetch. That’s from ANY and ALL of the US brands. Some make your eyes water!
