was checking out the Marlins new 2011 catalog on their site and found out for 2011 they are making a 1894 44 mag in SS with the 16.5" bbl XS sights and rail all from the factory! I just may have to sell something!

If you go to marlins web site click on the order catalog link and then view online. pg 12 "i think"

I've had the equivilent of that same set up, as Marlin used to build a 16.5" 44. Added the cantilever rail and a red dot for a super fast hard hitting pack rifle.

I agree with you, I have a 1894C 44 mag with the XS sights its just not in SS with the rail.. It is my favorite lever gun. with a 300 hard cast Its serious close range hog medicine. thought about adding the rail and a red dot but the XS sights are great and very reliable.

Looks like I've got a new truck gun. Perfect match for my 4 5/8" Super Blackhawk.

Dang it!!! Just when I thought I had all of the guns that I NEEDED, Marlin came up with this! Once they come out and I can see one in person, I don't know how I'll resist!

My pack/camping rifle is my 45/70 Guide Gun GI1. The extra 1.5 inch of barrel hasn't been a problem.
