Who knew this was all here on the SIGForum?

I need to look in some of these other areas more often

I have always been a fan of lever guns and pump rifles. I am probably approaching 3 dozen by now

I like the pistol caliber lever guns the most and I just finished reworking a 45 LC chambered Marlin 1894 so it would be easier to keep with me, like a pistol



Yep, I just cut it in half

The barrel half has a stainless block added and contoured to match the receiver. The fore-end had to be shortened a bit. Once the two halves are screwed together, a ball/detent locks it up. The magazine tube then slides back into the receiver and locks to further prevent unscrewing, intentional or otherwise.



Obviously I added the tang sight to the piece as well.



Then it was cerakoted in black.

Yes, I do have plenty of wheel guns to go with it. Everything from pocket sized Titanium Eek to oversized stainless steel











Yes, I need to pull some of those out of the safe and do new photos. Where does all the extra time go?

OH Yeah, it goes to shooting

Originally I was going to do this with a 41 Magnum since I really like that caliber. However A buddy talked me out of it due to the scarcity of 41 Magnum Marlins.


There are 1000 of the 1894 CCL but the long barrel is counter productive in this case



The short barrel of the 1894-SS is kind of a natural, but Marlin only made 251 of these



So the 16" Blue 1894 in 45 LC was next in my sights.

I do not own a Marlin in 357 Magnum or I might have gone that route
