I got the same strain of Marlinitis again today, that everyone here has been getting, However I believe this Marlin might become the jewel in my family of Marlins. I put in layaway a 1894 .410 shotgun in stainless steel with laminated stock, I didn't measure the barrel but I believe it sports a 24" barrel. It is a 2009 model distributer exclusive North Haven gun. I was told there was only to be 300 of them made for this distributer, and that they only received 40 of them before the move to NY. The distributer told my dealer that they don't know if they will ever get the other 260 guns. My dealer ended up with 6 of them and I got the last one. The action is almost as slick as my Henry Goldenboy, and the wood is absolutely gorgeous. Definitly gonna be prime gun porn when I can get a pic of it. Now the wait begins.............. Dan

Well I finally got it out of layaway. My gun pusher is a heck of a guy, he give me an unlimited amount of time to pay it off without any extra fees. It's a beauty too. A 1894 410 XLR Stainless with laminated stock. I was wrong in the other post about the # of guns the distributor received, they received 260 guns and were waiting on the last 40 and they never got them. My gun is numbered 213. Talk about gun porn....... Dan

I can't wait to shoot it.

Nice, I have one that is 5-6 years old, plain walnut stock. I thing the barrel on mine is 22", the picture you showed does look longer. It is a model 1895, the 1894 is too small for a .410 shell.

It's fun on clay birds, and throws a pretty good pattern with 000 buckshot.

Yes it is an 1895 model and it has a 24 inch barrel. However Marlin should have threaded the bore for choke tubes. The cylinder bore is almost too open for shotshells. Too bad they didn't make it in 20 gauge, then they would have really had something. IMHO. Dan

Boy -- if they made that to chamber 45LC as well as 410, that'd be impossible to pass up... Fortunately, they don't so I get to save some money!!!
