Which big loop levers will fit the 1894 Cowboy Limited and the 1894 C Carbine?
I am searching too, but I do not plan to pay any $150 for a big loop lever for my Marlin 1894SC. If I have to I want to buy a used or new plain lever and build a big loop myself. I recently bought a Lincoln 140c mig welder and I also have a Dremel tool to cut the lever then add metal and weld it back . I bet some blacksmith has built them before . firstname.lastname@example.org and my name is David if anyone can help. thanks
What is the value of a marlin 1894 cowboy limited that has never been fired and has the lock book etc with it?
Depends where you live. Also it matters if its the 1894 cowboy or the 1894 cowboy limited. If it actually is a cowboy limited it matters if its the 20'' or the 24'' barrel. If in fact its the 24'' cowboy limited and in good condition people will pay 800-1000. They are very hard to come by and marlin stopped making them when they were bought by Remington.
Yes there is.I personally have a marlin model 1894 cowboy ltd.that is chambered for the .45 colt cartridge.A few that come to mind is the rossi lever action carbine,the marlin model 1894,some Winchester model 1894 carbines,original Winchester model 1892 lever action carbines etc.With the revival of the cowboy action matches at gun ranges across the country gun makers are making more and more firearms that fire the .45 colt cartridge.
When did Marlin make an 1894 model 44 magnum modern day carbine that is not the currently made cowboy gun has no safety and has the word OCTAGON stamped in large letters on its octagonal barrel?
The Marlin Model 1894 was manufactured from 1894 to 1934. 44-40 WCF was the largest caliber available. A 44 S&W magnum is only slightly larger, so it MIGHT chamber, but even if it will, DON'T use it. The modern Marlin 1894 Octagon was manufactured in 1973, and was produced for that year only. It is chambered for the modern .44 S&W magnum cartridge, and was a precurser to the "Cowboy" series.
