The early issue of this popular rifle produced a total of 10,738 carbines and 35,948 rifles between 1894-1906, offered in .25, .32, .38, or .44 caliber. A small, unknown number of 1894s were produced from 1929 to 1933, apparently, using parts left over from before World War One, combined with the manufacture of some new parts.
Marlin reintroduced the late-model Marlin 1894 in 1969 in .44 magnum. This newer rifle has a heavier stock with either pistol grip or straight grip, shotgun-style buttstocks and a chunky forearm.
Early model stocks are not interchangeable with later rifles, and vice-versa. For early-style stocks designed to fit later rifles, please see our Cowboy Action page.
