Our Assessment: This is a Marlin Model 1895MXLR lever action rifle made with a 24” round barrel and half length magazine tube. These rifles were manufactured from 2006 to 2009, this example having been made in 2007. The original Model 1895 rifle ceased production in 1915, and was upgraded and brought back into production in 1972. The barrel is chambered in .450 Marlin and has Ballard rifling, which produces tighter groups with lead bullets than Marlin’s Micro-Groove rifling. The rifle is in about Fine-Excellent condition with only a few light marks in its surfaces. The bore is bright with sharp rifling and a small patch or two of negligible erosion. The rifle comes with provisions for a scope. This rifle is perfect for elk or black bear hunting and its fast lever action will give you a quick 2nd shot on running game if you need it. With its maneuverable barrel offering and a pair of rings, this is a perfect brush gun! Please see our photos and good luck!
