Lever Gun Review! Marlin 1894 in .44 Mag
Compact with a big bark, it’s time we take a look at the fabulous Marlin 1894. Of course I had to get in .44 Mag, a beloved cartridge for me. We take it out in the snow and the heat to see how this stainless, laminated wood big bore performs.
TaticalDoodle and Sean the TNPr help and both fall in love with the gun too. TD is here for the review too; I have to hold him back from his LockTite rant.
We find this iteration of the 1894 to smooth, fast, adequately accurate, and just plain cool. A vintage Marlin 336C in .30-30 is present as we bounce briefly to POU. Other versions and calibers are discussed. We do love the .44 Mag but we won’t gush here acting like it’s our first choice.
We probably shot this gun a bit much for the review but we find it addictive as we do with all good lever guns. Downsides are present and they’re discussed. The 1894 ain’t cheap and that would be primary. But in the end you’ll see how Marlin is still putting together one the baddest and coolest lever guns out there…still!
