    Big loop lever for 1894?

    I have an 1894 in .45colt, my daughter claimed it as her deer gun. The lever is a bit small for gloved or mittened hands. Can I install a large loop lever on it? I am actually thinking of buying another so I can hunt with it as planned.

    Check the Supporting Vendors section:

    http://www.marlinowners.com/forum/supporting-vendors/

    At least two venders there make large loop levers.

    Of course I carry a gun! It gives me a chance against the sinners and protection from the righteous.

    It looks to me like you need to buy two of them.

    How oversized are you thinking? DRC Firearms makes a loop that's larger, but not the huge loop that's normally seen. The web links always seem to be down, but here's a page on americanrifleman.org from October of this year that shows what I'm talking about; and they have a phone number listed there.

    Both Grizzly Custom Guns and Mule Loops (Forum Sponsors) can modify your exisiting lever.

    Jamie, Mr Mule Loop, did a great job on my 1894. I sent him my original lever to modify a few years ago. He does several different contours. Here is a pic showing my 1894 along with an old 1936 I salvaged. You may have to get in line but Jamies does a good job.

    Howdy fellas!
    I have an 1894SS that I too wanted to put a LLL on. Since I have a blued/SG version of the DRC unit on my 336/3040 already and love it to death I called up DRC last week and asked if I could order one in S/S for my 1894SS. A wonderful fella named Greg there told me they were having problems with taking credit card payments at the moment so if I could mail him a check he would process the order for me. When I asked him if I could get it shipped to me in NJ by Xmas that way he said "NO PROBLEM" and shipped it that night without even receiving my check yet! Is that customer service OR WHAT?!?! Not THAT's how you treat customer loyalty! I'm planning on putting a winged Skinner's GR sight and a slot blank(both in S/S as well) on it and will post pics when done. (Also just got an email from WWG that they DO still sell the Happy Trigger kit for my gun in blue or S/S for $89+ s/h which I will also be installing)
