Marlin is Back! Classic Hunting Rifles Make Return

Here's a quick look at the Marlin models 336 and 1894 from SHOT Show 2023.

Marlin is definitely, without a question, back in the game. Two years after the 1895 was re-introduced, Ruger-owned Marlin have followed with the returns of the models 336 and 1894 for this year. Both rifles are expected to be available this Spring.

The 336 is chambered in .30-30 and .35 Remington; while the 1894 comes in .44 Mag and 357/.38. In the video above, Eric Lundgren of Ruger highlights the features of both rifles with Game & Fish Editorial Director Adam Heggenstaller at SHOT Show 2023 in Las Vegas.

  • MODEL 336: The model is fast handling and an icon of the deer woods. This lever-action rifle is chambered in .30-30 Win. and .35 Rem.
  • MODEL 1894: The 1894 was the first rifle with a flat-top, side-eject receiver. Originally patented on Aug. 1, 1893 by L.L. Hepburn, it features a revolutionary lever-fire system with repeat-fire capability.

The Marlin brand is synonymous with lever-action rifles - the classic American long gun, a tool of history and just as much a symbol of the Old West as the six-shooter. Marlin's rich tradition, with a heritage stretching back to the Model 1881, their first centerfire; and the Model 1891, there first rimfire rifle. In fact, Annie Oakley trusted the Model 1891 above all others to demonstrate her legendary marksmanship.
