 Overview

The Marlin Model 1894 rifle is a lever action repeating rifle introduced in 1894 by the Marlin Firearms Company of North Haven, Connecticut.

At its introduction the rifle came with a 24-inch barrel and was chambered for a variety of pistol rounds, (the start of an American tradition of having a carbine and handgun using common ammunition). With a shortened barrel of 18” that was more suited for quick handling and carrying by cowboys on horseback, it became the Model 1894 Carbine.

Rechambered variants remain in production today.
