Can anyone tell me when marlin made this model and how many years they made them. I found one in a pawn shop and I'm trying to decide if I should buy it or not.

1983-1986 12,088 were produced. I found and bought one after looking for several years and have only ever actually seen one other in person. They are somewhat scarce and pricey.

How much are they asking for the one you saw?

If you really want one, I'd work your best deal and go for it. Don't pass it up.

Good luck.

GLC, thank you for the information. I don't remember the exact price but I thnk it was just under $300.00. They also had another marlin I've never seen before, I think it was a model 30tk chambered in 30-30, it had a short barrel and 2/3 mag tube. I own a bunch of model 1894s, 1895s and 336s but these are two I'm not aware of.

Under $300! Wow! I'd buy it just because it was cheap enough. I paid $400 for mine in perfect shape but no box or papers.

I just bought this gun. Looks like a first year model 1983. This gun needs a good cleaning but it looks like it is in very good condition. I talked them down to $225.00. Ye hah!

Dang..$225...you must be quite the talker! I paid $400 for mine no box or papers either. Good for you! Don't sell it...it can only get more valuable.

Sounds like he was wearing a ski mask while making that purchase....




Good deal. You'll love it.

Good Shooting.

I may be quilty of taking advantage of a pawn shop owner who only cares about making a quick buck but I promise there were no ski masks involved.

How about a Range Report from some of you guys that own these?

Anyone shoot one over a chronograph? Accuracy?

Dang, now I got to get one of these.

What a GREAT deal! I've been looking for one of these for quite a while now and they are next to impossible to find in any condition. Marlin really should consider putting these back into production.

The 1894 in 22WRM is incorrect. It was the Model 39 made in 22WRM.
Nope - Never been a 39 in any variation made in anything but 22 s, l, lr.

Marlin made the 1894M in 22 Mag for a few years - usually bring big bucks.

You are wrong Ruger No. 3. The 1894"M" was made between 1983 and 1988. It was made on the 1894 action not the 39.

The Winchester 9422 was made in .22lr and .22 mag on the same action but not the 39.

This gun is very accurate but the extractor spring is a little weak, when it gets dirty sometimes it won't extract the spent case. Last weekend I was on vacation near moab, ut. and I was shooting jackrabbits with this gun in the red rock country, what a hoot.
