Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. (NYSE: RGR) is proud to announce the reintroduction of the Marlin® Model 1894™ Classic chambered in .44 Rem Mag. The Model 1894 Classic retains the traditional features that made this a truly iconic rifle. .
“We are very excited to introduce our first Ruger-built Marlin 1894 model,” said Ruger Chairman and CEO Chris Killoy. “We have spent many months working to make this rifle the best it can be.”
Chambered in .44 Magnum, the 1894 Classic sports a straight stock and beautifully finished American black walnut fore-end. Crisp, clean checkering accentuates both the aesthetics and utility of this carefully crafted rifle.
Richly blued and featuring a square finger lever, this alloy steel rifle is equipped with a 20″ cold hammer-forged barrel with standard six-groove rifling and a 1:20″ twist rate. Also capable of firing the lighter recoiling .44 Special, the Model 1894 is equipped with a tubular magazine that will accept 10 rounds of .44 Magnum or 11 rounds of .44 Special ammunition.
“Our focus continues to be quality,” Killoy continued. “We remain committed to building firearms worthy of the John Marlin legacy. The fit and finish of this rifle is reminiscent of what was produced by Marlin craftsmen in New Haven, CT many decades ago.”
The Ruger-built 1894 Classic is marked “Mayodan, NC”, carries a “RM” or Ruger-built serial number prefix, and features the red and white “bullseye” in inventory.
Additional models in different calibers and configurations will be released over the next year.
