    Marlin lever action in 30-06

    I understand that Winchester model 1895 was chambered for 30-06. Did Marlin ever produced a lever action in 30-06?

    Nope, sure didn't. Marlin makes a bolt gun in 30-06 though.

    Unfortunatly no. Winchesters 1895 is a completely different design and there isnt really any other rifle like it.

    Re: Marlin lever action in 30-06

    A few lever-action rifles have been made to take high-pressure, bottle neck cartridges with pointy bullets. Marlin isn't one.

    Savage 99, Browning BLR, Winchester 1895 come to mind. There may be something I'm forgetting. Marlin has worked around that in recent years with their own .308 & .338 cartridges with special Hornady bullets that have soft tips and are completely safe in tube magazines.

    That ol 30-06 is one awesome round, be my favourite 30 calibre. Be cool in a nice 1895 CB looking rifle. ( not to mention a few other calibres too. )

    The .30-06 used to be my favorite round ... before I got hooked on Marlins.

    Re: Marlin lever action in 30-06

    Thanks - - you all confirmed what I thought was the correct answer. I met an acquitance over the w/e and got into a discussion where he said he had a Marlin lever action 30-06 and I kept saying that it could not be a Marlin lever action. I'm sure he is confused with a Browning or a Winchester. I just wanted to make sure.
