    Saw this on Facebook, looks like we will at least be seeing 1895’s by the end of the year. Not really surprised that was going to be first since they seem to be in high demand and are bringing a premium on the used market from what I’ve seen. Then again 45/70’s are popular around me since I live in a straight wall deer state.

    Ooooh. Looks like stainless steel and a laminate stock.

    If they get around to making a stainless and laminate 30-30 with a threaded barrel it will be hard for me to pass up. Same with a 357 1894 in the same configuration.

    I think it should be, you never saw a prideful picture like this out of Remington !

    I get people looking for .30-30s every day....45-70s not so much. Seems like an odd first choice to me, but what do I know? I'm just a counter monkey.

    A stainless laminate 45-70 would be really cool, especially if it has a threaded barrel! I'd also like a 30-30 like that too. I guess we'll see what comes out next!

    I'd like a new 35 rem but wonder how that would work now, a 25-20 or 256wm would be cool.

    Hopefully there will be many more stainless Marlins in the future. It seemed the old Marlin blatantly limited production of their SS offerings.

    I bet there isn't going to be many truly blued rifles at all.

    Be nice to see a box mag fed high powered example like a Browning BLR, but without the Browning price.

    That would be unfortunate.
    I am interested in blued steel and wooden stocked lever action rifles, stainless steel and laminate stocks don't interest me very much.

    When Ruger gets the casting setup going for the Marlin actions, watch for their dust and tail lights going away..

    I think there are a lot of gooberment regulations with hot bluing that doesn't make it cost effective. Probably why you don't see any blued Pythons and Cobras. I'm just guessing and may be completely wrong.

    Ya, I can see that. Also added could be the level of pre-bluing prep and polish work needed to create the “Python quality” bluing finish the consumer expects.

    Stay safe.

    The Henry Long Ranger might fit that category for you. Never held one but I’ve seen good reviews

    I regret not getting a Marlin in 45/70. Would have been an interesting rifle. Lets see how the Ruger lever actions do.

    Visited my friend that used to do QC for Marlin (at the end and not the beginning) when it was at Remington. He got overruled often from the ship first/fix later managers. He moved to Florida after the big layoff in Ilion. Anyhow he said a friend that is still employed told him that Ruger asked one of the Marlin Engineers to show them how to assemble a rifle. Epic fail supposedly followed and he wasn't picked up by Ruger. Rumor, and hearsay, but my friend seemed very much to believe the story. Glad Ruger will be making something of Marlin. Remington tired, got better, but couldn't escape bad management.

    I would play. IMHO, the little WCF's don't get anywhere near enough attention.


    You are completely wrong. Just peruse the Ruger site to see how many blued guns they already produce.


    They're already doing the polish work.

    Ruger is good about offering threaded options, I'm hopefully that I'll be able to get a decent SS threaded 1894 at some point.

    The youthes and new shooters see blued steel n’ walnut as outdated Fudd type weapons.

    I’m honestly pretty surprised the first models released aren’t black tactical.

    Then there's all the rest of us that just want something hardy and corrosion resistant that we can run with a can.

    I had a real JM Marlin 45-70 but sold it. I still have three 30-30s in the safe. I would rather have a new lever in 25-20 or 32-20 but I bet they never make them. And like a couple of others said I have a preference for blued steel and Walnut. And yes Ruger does offer blued guns. I just showed pictures of my new blued SP-101 that my oldest son has already talked me out of. I felt good about owning that gun. For three whole days. :(
