    Marlin 1894M .22 Magnum Lever-action

    I am so sad. Been looking for 1894M for five years or longer. Tried gun shows, pawnshops, classifieds, and word of mouth, all to no avail. have even thought of converting a 39A to .22 magnum. Anybody out there know if this is even feasable? :cry:

    Marlin 1894M .22 Magnum Lever-action

    The 39A is not strong enough for the .22 magnum. I have seen some Marlin Model 1894M's for sale in the last couple of months. Keep an eye out on the following web sites. www.gunbroker.com www.auctionarms.com or www.gunsamerica.com Parley

    Marlin 1894M .22 Magnum Lever-action

    Does the 1894m and the 39A use the same receiver/action? I thought the 1894m had a longer action than the 39A. I was under the impression that the 39A was plenty strong to handle the .22mag, but the action was too short for the longer cartridge.

    Parley Baer,
    I'm not disputing you statement at all, but would like to clear up any misinformation that I might have.
    Have you shouldered your Marlin today?

    Marlin 1894M .22 Magnum Lever-action

    The 1894 action is normally chambered for pistol cartridges and as powerfull as the .44 Remington magnum. The Model 1894 is the much stronger action. You are correct in that the 1894 does have a longer action when compared to the 39A.

    The 39A has always been chambered for the .22 with the long rifle being the most powerfull. Believe me if Marlin thought the .39A would handle the .22 magnum they would have done it. Parley

    Marlin 1894M .22 Magnum Lever-action

    Keep looking, you'll find one. Gives you more reasons to stop in the gun shops and go to the shows. I looked for 6 years before I found an 1894S in .41 Mag for sale.

    The 1894M's are not easy to find, I have seen exactly one, and I bought it. Paid more than I would have liked but really wanted the rifle.

    Good luck.

    Marlin 1894M .22 Magnum Lever-action

    Parley Baer ,

    Thanks for clearing that up. My mind is working slow,as usual. I didn't associate the 1894 (centerfire) with the 1894m.

    I would have thought the Marlin 39A would be as strong as the Winchester 9422/m. Thanks again Parley, I'll never be to old to learn.

    Marlin 1894M .22 Magnum Lever-action

    Parley,
    How much does the take-down factor of the 39 contribute to its unavailability in 22mag?

    9X19, thats a nice post,if I didn,t already have one I'd be on top of that.

    Marlin 1894M .22 Magnum Lever-action

    Hi Mudpuppy

    I really don't know. I do know that the Model 39 had a problem with High Speed 22 long rifle ammo. A change in how they machined the bolt solved that problem. The Model 39 with a HS prefix and all 39A's will handle the High Speed ammo just fine. Parley
