Barrel Length: 18.5”

Sights / Optics: This rifle is mounted with a brass bead front sight, and a folding, semi-buckhorn, elevation-adjustable rear sight.

Stock Configuration & Condition: The stocks are smooth, varnished wood. There is no checkering. The buttplate is the correct, white-outlined plastic Marlin marked butt plate. The wood has some small impressions, marks and tiny dings, although none of them break through the finish. These may be barely visible in the accompanying photos; they are minor. The buttstock has been drilled for a sling swivel, but no swivel is present.

Finish Originality: Original

Bore Condition: The bore is Marlin’s Micro-groove. It is shiny, and the rifling is sharp. There is no apparent erosion.

Overall Condition: The finish is good, and almost completely free of scrapes and scratches. There is a mark through the finish on the left side of the receiver, some tiny rubs to the magazine tube and a few marks from using this rifle. These are minor, and the overall condition is Fine. This gun was seldom shot and carefully stored.

Mechanics: The action functions correctly; the lever works the action and the trigger drops the hammer. We have not fired this rifle.

Box & Accessories: None

Our Assessment: The Marlin 1894 is one of the stronger lever action designs ever produced, it has been in production, with very few changes, for over a century, now. The action is robust, dependable, and remarkably easy to disassemble and clean. As a field rifle, it is handy to pair this light and easy to use carbine with a similarly chambered revolver. Cowboy Action Shooters have embraced this design, as well. This particular rifle was once belonged to Lead Dispencer as his back up, and was sold when he switched to a Winchester 1873. This is a nifty little carbine, and will make a very happy owner of the winning bidder! The current world record with a Lever Action Rifle was set with a Marlin Carbine. Be the next record holder! Go for it! The rifle can do it, can you?

CA Legal or CA Private Party Transferable: This rifle can be transferred in California.
