Just picked up a Marlin 1894c for 475.00. Beautiful! Wood is in perfect condition. Came with Lyman sight. 1980 model, JM stamped.

Cowboycopus you have an amazing eye! I suspect it is not. I need to do a little research but it seems to be a rubberized buttplate without a Marlin logo.

Folsom. You are correct. There is no marlin dot. I don't know enough about the production of early 1894c to know why.

Marlin made some 1894C rifles for Big 5 (and some others) that used birch instead of walnut stock! Having said that, it could also be that the bullseye was drilled out to put in the sling swivel! I don't know for sure about either of those suppositions, but I DO KNOW that you got a great rifle at a GREEEAAAT price:biggrin: Enjoy! John

Congratulations on the sweet find! Looking at the grain if the wood with my old eyes it looks like it might be birch. What ever it is you got it for a steal.

Great deal! There is a shop about 10 miles from me that has one for that exact price but it looks like someone absolutely pounded it. Yours looks great

I agree about the birch. The rear sling swivel is where the bullseye should be. If there once was a bullseye, that hole is awfully large for a sling swivel. And if you were going to the trouble of installing a rear sling swivel, where is the front swivel? Just some thoughts and observations.....

papajohnabi Hit the Nail Right on the Head.... Birch Stock Model = No Bullseye.
Odd Buttplate Maybe for Same Reason. Excellent Condition & Great Price!
You Done Good My Friend,
