    Marlin 1895S Rifling

    Did the Marlin 1895 S use Micro Groove rifling just like the 1895SS or did it use conventional rifling?

    Chuck,

    From what I understand reading on the Net and being at gun shows, all of the major Marlin lever guns switched to micro Groove rifling, but then later they changed them to a deep Ballard type for a better performance with lead loads.

    Cheers,

    I believe if it is micro groove it will say so on the barrel.

    If it doesnt say on the barrel and you want to know for sure, count the lands and grooves. Micro groove has 12, Ballard 6.

    They Changed in the mid nintey's I think '93 or '94 but all marlins are marked on the Barrel Microgroove if they have that but they are not marked if they don't
