    New Marlin 1894C's on the way!!!

    Well, it looks like us lever gun guys might have something new to spend our money on in 2018.

    We will see.

    I wouldn't mind having a Remlin 1894C for inclement weather and stout loads. My cherry 1981 version is reserved for sunny days and mild loads.
    Currently casting and loading: .32 Auto, .380 Auto, .38 Special, 9X19, .357 Magnum, .257 Roberts, .30 WCF, .45-70 Gov't.

    Time will tell if these are good or popular. There is a certain attraction to a SS & synthetic lever rifle in pistol cartridge together with a can. I love older rifles with nice wood and blued steel but I don't care if the younger folks choose or prefer new products as long as they join us in our hobby.

    I don't know how we ever shot maximum loads before P/C come along and saved us all. R5R

    I agree with you, it's just ugly and overpriced IMO. Plastic stocks should cost less than wood any day. I hate to see people take subsonic ammo hunting for deer because the power isn't there. Sure, it can be done but that doesn't mean you should. I'll put my flame retardant suit on now!

    Just because you're using a suppressor doesn't mean you use subsonic ammo. It still decreases the decibel level. I will agree that using subsonic ammo for hunting isn't a smart thing to do. It will have enough power at certain ranges so it can be used. It's just not something I do.

    At that price, it should function flawlessly and have the right sort of rifling and twist!
    But, from what I see, no thanks.

    The 1894Cs have had ballard rifling w/ a fast enough twist to handle heavy weight bullets for a few decades now.

    I think he was talking about the latest bunch of reports of remlins having little to no rifling present.
    I like the idea of a threaded barrel and the XS sights. I'd like to see a walnut stock on stainless but could live with plastic. However, I will not be buying one unless remlin can get their act together.
