.44-40 Marlin 20" round barrel????


Recommended Posts

Seen a 20" round barreled JM Marlin today.  Didn't know they made a 20" round barreled model.  Is it a very rear item, harder to find than a hex barreled one or did someone do some work on the barrel

I have a 1990s Marlin 1894 in .44 Magnum.

I also have a spare barrel in .44 Mag.  If I came across a good deal for an 1894 in .44 Mag or .45 Colt, I would but it, have the new barrel modified to .44WCF and installed.

I didn't know they were that rare of an item. I have two 1894S .44-40 models, both 20" round barrels, one with a golden trigger and one with blue. One s/n starts with 25 and one with 24, so I assume 1975 and 1976 manufacture? Both came from the SASS Wire classifieds here about 6 years ago.

Checked the S/N it starts 4440------ my brother let me put some rounds down range with it.  Siad I could play with it but couldn't have it. :angry:

I have been looking for several years and had not found one I could buy.  1894 Marlins in .44-40 just don't show-up for sale.

 

There are two on Gun Broker right now.  One is a limited production in chrome.
