SHOT Show 2018: ​Marlin Model 1894 CST Rifle

posted on January 25, 2018
Marlin has added several new offerings to its Model 1894 line of pistol-caliber lever-action rifles, including the 1894 CSBL and the 1894 CST—both of which feature stainless steel receivers, pistol-grip buttstocks, 16.5” barrels and big loop levers. Each rifle is also chambered for .38 Spl/.357 Mag. and feeds from a six-round tubular magazine. The CSBL wears a laminate stock, while the CST instead uses painted hardwood furniture. Both utilize XS ghost ring sights, however, the CSBL features the company’s XS Lever Scout rail as well. Fairly uncommon among lever-actions, the CST’s barrel is threaded at the muzzle for compatibility with suppressors and other muzzle accessories. MSRP: $1,145 (CSBL); $1,154 (CST).
