Marlin 1894SS

The Marlin Model 1894SS is a lever-action carbine chambered in .44 Rem. or .44 S&W Special. The Model 1894SS is one of five centerfire rifles produced in Marlin’s 1894 series. It is identical in size to the standard Model 1894, but is made of stainless steel instead of blued steel.

The 1894SS features a 20″ barrel, which puts its overall length at 37.5″, and it holds 10 rounds in its tubular magazine. The barrel has undergone Ballard-type rifling, which carves six deep and wide grooves that are supposed to help improve accuracy on high-power rifles. It’s a slow process that puts almost no stress on the metal.

Marlin 1894SS

The 1894SS has an American black walnut stock with checkering on the fore-end and on its straight grip. The 1894SS also employs an adjustable folding rear sight with a ramp front sight with brass bead and Wide-Scan brand hood.

Marlin recommends the Model 1894SS for hunting large game.
