They seem to produce them in batches so you have to watch for them.
It's a great rifle.
Good luck.
Not an 1894C, but Turner's has 25 Marlin 1895 Limited Editions for sale.

I called a fellow gun owner tonight about his Rossi Mod. 92 he had just sold. We started talking about Marlins and I think if you really want to find the Marlin .357 that you want. Be prepared to pay as much or more in cost for a JM stamped Marlin what ever model you want. Look on Gun Broker & other reputable sights. There are roughly 3-4 models of course the 1894 C but then there is a stainless steel 1894 and 2 cowboy models a 20 inch Octagon barrel and the 24 inch Octagon model. I know it stinks that you cannot find a new Marlin in .357 but there sure seems to be .44 Magnums out there. Hey good luck hope something turns out.

I have observed them on gun broker over the last 5 months. Just not ready yet, but they're there, currently six.
Lever Action Rifles for Sale - Buy Lever Action Rifles at GunBroker.com

On the flip, I have not witnessed any on GoG in the same time period.

As far as new, I'm still searching & waiting.

Looked on Gun Broker at the Marlin 1894 C Model wow way way over priced average buy it now price $1295.00 Seeing prices like this makes me think the Henry Big Boy Steel & Rossi's are just about the only way to go. Especially if you want to add a scope Henry is really the only choice!

Checked the link above about Gun Broker. WOW, can't believe the prices. I run across an almost new one some years back for $300 from a private seller. By far my most favorite rifle. It has dispatched it's fair share of four legged criters.

I must have been in the right place at the right time!!! Wanting to get the scope off of my Marlin 1894 Cow Boy Limited rifle. My first thoughts were to sell the Rossi Model 92 and my Ruger LCR .22 Magnum. The very night I posted my two guns about two hours later there pops up a Marlin 1894 C .357 pre cross bolt safety model for $500.00 I was 2nd in line to ask about the gun. I contacted the seller via text the next day he said it was sold my response to him was dang it I would pay $525.00 for it. He texted me back come and get it. My thoughts I didn't want to run into buyer # 1. So I got the cash out of the credit union drove up looked at it and bought it on the spot. Funny thing later that same day I sold my Rossi Model 92 that I paid $200.00 for I got $400.00 for it a $200.00 profit. So in reality my Marlin 1894 C cost me $125.00!!! I also saw about two weeks ago another Marlin 1894 C very nice rifle with the original box etc priced at $1000.00 obo!! I posted a thread on it here but it was moved or deleted by our monitor's ?? But this online listing was about 5 miles away from me the gun must have sold. They do come along once in a great while. So I never bought a Henry Big Boy Steel Carbine weighing in at 6.69 lbs for a carbine!!! But just a Marlin 1894 C pre cross bolt safety model. My Marlin CB Limited Model is back to open sights only now weights much less minus the small Weaver 2-7x32 scope that now sets on my Marlin 1894 C .357 that's bore sighted in now. I will have to do a ranger report and also a group shot of my Marlin and Henry lever action rifle collection. I have a very slow approach to posting pictures my wife helps me on this chore! My question now is to Marlin why in the hell just market a Marlin 1894 in a .44 Magnum it's kinda a bunch of total Bull $hit in my thinking. In many ways going to miss my little Rossi Model 92 they are really nice little rifles for the price but open sights only!!!

I've got an older 1894c 357 JM-stamped model that I will never let go. It's a wonderful gun.

GQ, the seller was a *ss. if he did that to the first buyer, what makes you think he would not have done it to you if some one else had called after you did and offered 530.00? come to think about it to bad some one didn,t. eastbank.

Try to hold out for a Marlin marked JM on the barrel. They're made by marlin before Remington took over. Also try marlinowners forum.

Dick's Sporting Goods has about half a dozen 44s on the rack. Nobody wants them.

If nobody wants them I suspect they are overpriced.
I would not buy from Dick's if I could find the product elsewhere.
They sell quickly when available and priced right around here.

They are priced to high. And not just by Dick's. I have yet to see one for under $700. That's to much money for a pistol caliber lever IMO. They are made well w/ no defects like early production. They just want to much money for one.

The Levergun is going the way of the dinosaur as a whole. Even when manufacturers tried to revitalize the product by developing modern pressure cartridges with modern ballistics, the levergun just can't compete with a bolt gun in todays hunter's world. They're a niche market product at best, so they'll forevermore be victim to low demand, low production production and inventory investment inflation.

Couple with that the fact leverguns are much more expensive to produce than bolt guns, their pricing just makes sense. A hundred years ago, the gap between production cost of a bolt gun and a levergun was much smaller, but modern automated production processes have allowed modern bolt guns to be produced with hardly a human hand involved, whereas the levergun still requires substantial set up and and machining time (cost) for machining and even moreso for assembly.

As much as it pains me to see it happen, the sun has set on the day of the budget friendly levergun.
