Mechanics: The action functions correctly. We have not fired this rifle.

Box, Paperwork & Accessories: None.

Our Assessment: The current Model 1894 is based on the Model 336 action scaled down for pistol-sized cartridges and parts are not interchangeable with the original Model of 1894. So far, over one million Model 1894 rifles have been sold. In the mid-1990s, Marlin changed the .357 and .44 barrels from 12-groove-or-more "Micro-Groove" rifling to 6-groove "Ballard" style rifling to better handle the lead bullets used by Cowboy Action shooters. Fortunately, this rifle was made in 1979, the first year the carbine was introduced, and has the tack driving micro-groove rifling. The rifle is not marked with the 1894C model designation, perhaps because it was one of the first produced. This rifle is in remarkable condition given its age, and would make a great addition to a collection or as a gift to a young shooter.

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