Turnbull Restoration Co. has added the Marlin 1895 featuring Turnbull's finishes as the newest offering in its Turnbull Finished line of production firearms.
"The Marlin 1895 is a classic lever-action rifle that is part of American history," said CEO and Founder Doug Turnbull. "It was the logical next gun in our Turnbull Finished line. There are still original production 1895s in use."
The Turnbull Finished Marlin 1895 rifles will be available in .45-70 Gov't with a four-round tubular magazine. The action is the same as the original—lever action with a solid top receiver, side ejection and an integral hammer block safety. The 22" barrel features Ballard-type deep-cut six-groove rifling at a perfect 1:20" rate of twist. The gun itself is 40.5" in overall length and weighs in at a comfortable 7 lbs.
The receiver, lever and hammer are finished in Turnbull's unique color case hardening using the traditional methods. All blued parts retain the Marlin original factory bluing. The wood stocks and fore-end are refinished by hand to match Marlin's original red shading and offer factory-cut deep checkering.
