Ruger Reintroducing the Marlin Model 1895 Trapper Lever-Action Rifle

The Marlin 1895 Trapper was conceived by hunting and fishing guides in Alaska who needed a big-bore rifle that was short, quick-handling and optimized for hunting or protection from dangerous animals.

Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. has announced its reintroduction of the Marlin Model 1895 Trapper.

Chambered in .45-70 Govt., this latest Marlin offering from Ruger features a 16.17”, cold hammer-forged barrel with a 1:20” twist. The threaded barrel (11/16”-24), comes with a match-polished thread protector and will accommodate common muzzle devices.

The stainless-steel receiver, lever, magazine tube and barrel feature a non-glare, satin finish, as do the smaller nickel-plated parts. The bolt is spiral-fluted and similarly nickel-plated. A receiver-mounted Skinner Sight system acts as the default iron sights for the gun and is machined from solid stainless steel bar stock.

The black laminate stock and forend feature a checkering pattern that Ruger says will provide an excellent grip in all weather conditions. A generous buttpad absorbs recoil and makes the rifle easy to shoot. Interested marksmen will notice that the trademarked black and white Marlin “bullseye” found in Marlin stocks is still there, but in red and white.
