    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!!

    **It was just buffed with gun wax before these pics were taken about 2 years ago...to have the pictured super high lustre shine it should prob. be buffed with gun wax again**

    I’ll get more pics up as soon as I can

    1600.00 shipped/insured takes it home!!! 1D6EC7DE-645C-4C7B-96F9-F5E0A63F7619.jpeg 182B1756-16A1-492E-BDA7-128E95C7E728.jpeg 67B1BEDE-4F5C-4FBB-BBAB-77564F65D23E.jpeg

    Thanks for all the likes guys!!!

    I will get more pics up that will be very current when I’m home to take them tomorrow, just to be clear it’s the same rifle in the same exact condition it’s simply lost a bit of the super high lustre shine from the buff job with gun wax

    Cerakote has a Marlin Classic Model 1895 in the gallery on their website... first bronze lever gun I’d ever seen. What you did with this one is much more striking. The 1971 1894 platform is very cool in bronze... GLWS!

    I think it looks better without the high gloss; more natural looking. Anyways that is a really nice rifle wish I had the dough.

    That's a beauty and definitely the best looking Cerakoted Marlin I've seen, out of my price range but GLWS
