    I guess it depends on the factory trigger you received. I suppose I'm lucky, but all my factory triggers have about a 3.5 lb, crisp pull. My heaviest is a 1950's 39a at about 4.5 lbs. The flop has never bothered me. I'll admit, I've been tempted to try an aftermarket due to the strong recommendations on this forum.

    Congratulations on the new rifle. Let us know what you decide.

    Welcome to the forum. I do not mind the trigger flop and I am tight, Spent about 3 hrs doing my first trigger job on my 336 myself.

    I installed the WWG trigger in my 1894 CSBL and I am very pleased with it. I also replaced the hammer spring.

    Welcome from Midcoast Maine. I have yet to replace any of the triggers on my Marlins. I am interested in the RPP trigger for my 1894 357 Mag and am keeping an eye on Bart's (Scorpiusb) posts. I have purchase other RPP products for my Marlins and could not be more pleased with the quality and support.

    Welcome from Northern Wi.I like to do my own trigger work.It is easy and only cost you about 15 minutes of your time once you have done them.My take is you have to take it apart to install a aftermarket trigger so 3/4s of the job is done all ready and save your self $100.00.There is a sticky for doing it.OB

    For my money the WWG (or similar other) along with better sights is the best bang for the buck mod you can do for a Marlin Lever Gun.

    I did my own trigger jobs for many years and finally got to be decent at it. But.... Sure is nice to send the $$$ in and then take 15 minutes and have a great trigger with a clean light pull and break.
    I like it. I love it. Can't get enough of it.

    Welcome from SW Ohio.

    You'll like the 1894c, I predict.

    Cycle the lever several hundred times to get it worked in. It'll get a lot smoother.

    I'd suggest you run several hundred rounds through it before you purchase an aftermarket trigger. It may be that you will be ok with the factory trigger. You can always drop a WWG trigger in later.

    Not everything aftermarket is an improvement. But the loading gate from RPP is a good idea and will make things a lot easier on your thumb.

    Better sights are definitely worthwhile, either a ghost ring or a small low power scope will make a world of difference.

    Let us know.
