Picked up my new 1894 CST from my FFL last week. I am impressed and very happy with the rifle, flawless fit and finished. Function test at the range last weekend with no hickup of any kind (50 rounds of PMC Bronze .357 Mag 158 gr JSP). I plan to modify the rifle for more modern look and function.

Congratulations. Looks like a beautiful rifle. Glad to hear that you're pleased with one of the new Marlin's. 357 mag. is a fun round to play with and can be used in many ways.

“More modern look and function”? What does the OP mean by that? Picatinny rail? Laser sight? Extended magazine? Muzzle brake? Tactical stock? Scope with a 50mm objective? Vertical forend hand grip? Camo paint job? Enquiring minds want to know!

I'd call it "modern urban rifle" project. 🙂
M-Lok hand guard, M-Lok ammo sleeves, cheekpiece riser. Upgrade trigger set, loading gate and magazine follower. Add XS sight rail and a red dot sight.
Few of the parts have arrived and installed.

I've seen and held the CST. I already had the CSBL so I opted for the 1895Trapper instead of the CST.
The 'Tactical' forearm looks great on a black-stocked rifle (better than the factory forearm imho).
I'm liking what you're doing to it! :top:
