Ruger’s Mayodan, NC facility has been busy cranking out reintroduced Marlin models, and they have two more to add to their list: the 1894 and 336. The reintroduced models have features updated such as hooded front sights and should be available soon to the public.
[SHOT 2023] Two Reintroduced Leverguns From Marlin – 1894 and 336
First up is the Marlin 1894. This model will initially have a 20″ barrel and a 10-round tube magazine. The hooded front sight is fitted with a brass bead. The initial chambering of the reintroduced 1894 will be .44 Magnum with a 1:38″ twist, with other calibers likely to come. The 1894 will be available in spring of 2023.
The Model 1894 was the first rifle with a flat-top, side-eject receiver. Originally patented on August 1, 1893 by L.L. Hepburn, it features a revolutionary lever-fire system with repeat-fire capability.
Second is the Marlin 336, chambered in .35 Remington and the less-powerful but more common .30-30. The reintroduced 336 will have a 20.25″ barrel, hooded front sight with brass bead, and a 6+1 capacity. The Marlin 336 should be available in Q1 of 2023. MSRP is yet to be revealed for both new reintroductions to the Marlin lineup. Both models will have checkered walnut stocks, front and rear swivel studs, and dual barrel bands.
The Model 336 is fast handling and is an icon of the deer woods. This lever-action rifle is chambered in .30-30 Win. and .35 Rem.
