    Re: Model 1894 Cowboy

    According to the Website yes. But I haven't seen any.

    This really doesn't answer the question. Sorry

    Re: Model 1894 Cowboy

    According to there 2011 catalog they do. But personally I would look for a Marlin made, not a Remington made cowboy. Look for a (JM) on the barrel.
    The Remington's have a (REM). Rem is having trouble making good ones now days.

    There are several posts on the problems with the new so called Marlin's coming out of the Remington factory.

    From what I'm hearing, Remington is having trouble making good Remingtons, too. Quality seems to have slipped badly in the last couple of years. The Remington fans seem to be as mad as the Marlin fans! :P

    Re: Marlin - Model 1894 Cowboy

    What do you expect when you are manufacturing Marlins, Remingtons, H&R, and Bushmasters, all in the same building. Those of you with manufacturing experience understand what I am getting at. You can not expect workers to shift gears every time you change what you are manufacturing and expect quality work.

    What Remington SHOULD HAVE done was to move the Marlin Plant here to North Carolina where their headquarters are already located and they could have had closer touch to the work being performed. A high quality workforce available with the Research Triangle Park and 3 major universities within a 30 mile TRIANGLE, (Duke, North Carolina, and NC State). We have a great environment to live in and far less cost of living than the New York and Connecticut locales. From Raleigh we are 3 hours from the Smokie Mountains, 2 hours from the Atlantic coast - Wrightsville Beach, 2.5 hours to Myrtle Beach, 6 hours to Atlanta. 45 minutes to the Sandhills and some of the greatest golf in the world (Pinehurst for example), and 5 hours to Washington, DC.

    Re: Model 1894 Cowboy

    The Cowboys are octagon 20", barrels since 2003 and there are new ones available on Gunbroker if you want one. I would be cautious of purchasing an NIB (new in box) because you might get one of the Remington built models. There is a lot of controversy regardinig these new ones. Maybe you ought to look for one of the great older 24" barrel models. Good Luck!!

    What Remington should have done was left the Marlin factory alone and let them build Marlins like they have since 1870.

    Same as it's been for a long time...

    It makes me glad I have older model Remingtons and Marlins...
