  2. 38 55 fun

    32-40 38-55/375 & Other Non Standard Caliber
    As mentioned in my second post we finally got two accuracy loads, one with 4227 and one with blue dot. All our experimentation was done with a Vortex 3X9 power scope. Real men shoot with iron sights so the scope came off and a Williams receiver sight went on the rifle. I'm an old geezer and shot...
  3. New to this forum, but not new to Marlins, just went cowboy 38 55

    32-40 38-55/375 & Other Non Standard Caliber
    Bought my first Marlin in 1962, yes I am an old geezer, a model 39. Last Halloween I purchased a Marlin 336 cowboy in 38 55 off of Gunbroker. Best purchase in decades. Love this rifle. The challenge has been finding the most accurate load. Have experimented with three different powders, 3...

  5. New to me 1894CCL

    Been looking for a .41 mag Marlin to go with my Blackhawk for close to 20 years. As they say good things come to those who wait. As I mentioned a few weeks ago, I found this in a LGS for well below what they are going for on the auction sites. I had always been looking for an 1894S but I think...
  6. Warning read owners manual.

    Cowboy Rifles
    Hey all just a quick question. When did the 1895 cb rifles cease to have the "Warning read owners manual" stamp on barrel? Or did Remmington just forget to stamp it. I personally like it not being there.
  7. 1894 Cowboy II in 44 mag, leading issues and accuracy problems.

    Hello there, I'm new to posting on this forum but not new at all to reading it. I know, this topic has come up many times, but I'm finally fed up, and have to reach out for some advice on the leading I've been getting in my 44 mag with Plain Based wheel weight bullets. I'm not new to...
  8. Made a stock cover for my 1895

    The 45/70 Govt.
    My "new" Marlin 45-70 Cowboy was just crying out for a leather butt cover, so I made one last night and stained it today. My goals: 1. Raise the comb a little, to allow scope use but without compromising irons 2. Increase length of pull (the gun is a little short for me- see the slo-mo vid in...
  9. Rejoice: Finally joined the 45-70 Club

    The 45/70 Govt.
    Drove from West Wales to Yorkshire (not far by USA standards!) to pick this up today: (JM) Marlin 1895 Cowboy with dodgy Malcolm repro scope: Here in the UK, these things don't grow on trees and tracking down a "JM" hasn't been easy (had one false start with what turned out to be a "REP"...

    Welcome New Members
    I was looking for information on how much my rifle is worth, as I want to sell or trade it. I have had it since 1999 and has never been fired as far as I can tell. NO scratches, nicks or wear of anything visible. Original sleeve, letter, locks and box. YOU NEED TO HAVE 25 OR MORE POSTS...

  13. Pistol calibers without pistol grips?

    Why do the pistol calibers not come in a pistol grip option? All the bigger rounds have more pistol grips than straight, or "cowboy" style. The .357 and .44 mag come in one flavor, straight. Then, moving down in size, even the .22 is most often found with a pistol grip. :hmmmm: I read somewhere...
  14. 1894 - 44 mag misfires

    Ok in an earlier post we talked about some white box Winchester 44 mag jsp from walmart not firing ,I had 3 in 1 box so I decided to try some hornady lever ammo ,got 3 duds in the first 8 rounds.I started to think it's not the ammo. I had a cowboy action hammer spring in the gun which has been...
  15. Marlin model 94 44-40 Serial# 396830

    Marlin Collectors
    I recently acquired my fathers old Marlin. He said it was his old ranch rifle when he was spending summers in Montana back in high school in the early 60's. A friend who talked to someone affiliated with Marlin said that it was manufactured sometime between 1920 to 1935. The grey is due to to...
  16. Baptist Cowboy

    A cowboy, who just moved to Wyoming from Texas, walks into a bar and orders three mugs of Bud. He sits in the back of the room, drinking a sip out of each one in turn. When he finishes them, he comes back to the bar and orders three more. The bartender approaches and tells the cowboy, "You...

    Im new to the Forum. I own a few marlins but have been looking for a long time for a Marlin 1895 Cowboy 45-70. The more I have researched this gun the more I believe I want a 2008 or older model rifle with a JM Stamp. If anyone knows of one for sale that is in great working...
