Marlin 1894

Post by mrwurz »

I have a Marlin Model 1894 s/n395089. 20" Octagon Barrel, chambered for 44-40. I am trying to find the year of mfg and an approximate value. I am dealing with a non-technical brother across the country so no pics are available yet. I understand value= condition. But would appreciate a ballpark price.

Thank you

Without pictures, and so little information it could be anywhere from as little as $300 to as much as $3,000. Way to many variables involved in these neat old Marlins to get any closer.
Marlin lever actions 1870's-WWI, Ballards, and single shot rifles!

An estimation for the date of manufacture would be in the 1908/1909 time frame. There are no factory records past the numbers 355,500 that ended in December of 1906.
Due to the increasing cost of ammunition, there will be no warning shot!

The growing federal deficit = generational slavery to the national debt.

If the world was wouldn't be.
