Marlin 1894 Features

This is an ideal lever-action rifle for hunting deer, hogs, or black bears at close to a medium range or defending yourself against potential threats in the backcountry. The 1894 has a blued steel barrel and receiver and a straight-grip, walnut stock. The 20″ barrel has Ballard-style rifling to handle all types of bullets—cast or jacketed. The full-length magazine tube holds 10 rounds of powerful .44 magnum cartridges.
The receiver utilizes side ejection, which simplifies scope mounting, and the gun comes drilled and tapped for attaching a scope mount. The Marlin 1894 features a semi-buckhorn, folding rear side, and a brass bead front sight, protected by a Wide-scan hood.
