I took this locally as a trade with an 1800.00 value about a year and a half ago...It has only ever sat in the case in my safe. I got it from a local gunsmith who had made it his personal project. It truly is a gorgeous rifle!

It’s a Marlin 1971 1894 Saddle Ring Carbine in 44 Mag ( also shoots 44 Special ) it was made in 1971 and of course has the ever so coveted “JM” stamp

The Saddle Ring Carbine models to my knowledge were only ever produced for 3 years, 1969-1971 and are pretty highly sought after.

The original wood furniture has been refinished with 15 hand rubbed coats of oil, the Metal has all been professionally Cerakoted H-Series ( bake on ) Dark Bronze with Dark Titanium accents, 24K Gold Plated Trigger, Original Brass Saddle Ring.

The cerakote and oiled wood make this carbine absolutely impervious to moisture/rust/corrosion/ect.

A perfect super lite-weight brush gun or a beautiful wall hanger or both haha

Anyone who has seen/handled the rifle in person absolutely loves it! You will too!!

The first pictures, very high gloss were how it was when I brought it home a year and a half ago after just being buffed with gunwax, the others taken today, still a beautiful rifle but could probably use being buffed again

The only flaw I’ve ever found is one screw that doesn't bottom out 100% flush and that’s pictured in the last picture for total transparency

I posted this here once before for a short time and had literal tons of interest and it seemed to cause a literal ton of controversy lol, most loved it, a few were very vocal with their disapproval of how it’s done...it is what it is...love it or hate it....

$1350 shipped/insured in a nice soft case if someone would like to have it..

Can we find it a new home today at 1200 bucks shipped & insured ???

Very nice. If I had not just picked up the winchester version of this same gun I would be all over this.

The furniture on it is extraordinary. The reason I asked about round count is it appears not shot at all. That is one Purdy gun. Not at all authentic to tradition but beautiful never the less. GLWS.
