    Marlin 1894 10mm/40 S&W Short Stroke Carbine (10/40SS)

    The RPP 10/40SS is a unique rifle, so much so that it is the first of its kind. It represents a number of extraordinary developments in the Marlin lever-action platform, if not repeating rifles as a whole class. To our knowledge, there is nothing else like it.

    To begin with, this rifle could not have been built without first developing our exceptional M/94 Extractor Claw, which itself was the product of months and months of intensive R&D work. Unlike, say, the .38spl and .357 mag, which headspace on their rims, the 10mm auto and .40 S&W headspace on their case mouths. So while the longer 10mm headspaces normally in this rifle, the .40 S&W round is held against the bolt face by the extractor alone.

    Firing the .40 S&W in a 10mm chamber requires that two conditions are met: 1) the action must be set up for controlled round feed--ie, the extractor must take control of the case rim immediately during carrier lift--a matter of split second timing when two disparate cartridges are involved; and 2) the extractor must hold onto the case rim, and remain undamaged, under repeated duress, as the firing pin smacks the primer, driving the cartridge forward against the extractor. Only RPP's M/94 Extractor is tough enough to handle this punishment.

    A host of modifications and careful tuning are necessary to achieve the foregoing conditions. It is important to note, that despite our best efforts (to date) time and gravity may still affect the feeding of .40s in the Marlin. The 10mm cartridge, being long enough to span the carrier bed, will run as reliably as any firearm can be made to run, but while the .40 will run reliably under most conditions, there are circumstances under which it may malfunction.

    For this reason, the .40 S&W should be considered a bonus round, good for cheap plinking and small game hunting, but it should not be relied upon for critical duty.

    A note to handloaders: because the RPP 10/40SS has a 10mm chamber, .40s may be loaded longer than normal with no ill effects. In fact, longer .40s will cycle with even greater reliability than shorter ones. Increased charges should, of course, be worked up with great.

    Thanks AZ. So far, everyone locally that we've shown it to went gaga for it. We already have a few orders.

    Yes we're making our own tool-less quick takedown screw now. The six rounded points make it really easy to screw it on and off in the field or at home. We offer them in blued steel and stainless steel.
    Vooch, AZsparrow and Tomray like this.

    Thanks kingsrider. It's $1,800 for the base conversion + donor rifle. In a 17.5" barrel, you get 12+1 rounds 10mm; 13+1 rounds .40 S&W.

    Here's a link to the page with all of the info.

    What about ballistics of the .45 A.C.P. round from the rifle barrel. Did I miss it when I went on your web page?

    the 40 makes a nice round in a rifle, I have a ruger police carbine in 40 and really like it. That is one sweet lever.
