It's a Model 1894, I have seen Marlin Model 1894 in the LGS's in .357 magnum. One other option is a Rossi Model 92 in .357/.38 Special. I have one of each in Marlin & Rossi. If you want to scope one then the Marlin is the best bet. Also Henry makes very fine lever action rifles in .357 in both brass or steel receiver's good luck!!!

The 2016 1894 is only offered in .44mag. No longer offered in 18944SS.

The 1894C and CSS both in .357mag are still in the catalog, as well as the 1894 .45colt.

Just a factor of model numbers I suppose.

I have not seen any marlin 1894s in other than 44 mag since the remington takeover.

So one company dropping a product should mean another should bring one out? Umm, a company doesn't drop a product because it's a good seller and providing profits, the drop what doesn't sell and provide worthwhile profits. How many of the other lever guns in .357 are flying of dealer shelves and being clamored for?

Marlin hasn't been putting out any lever guns in 357 magnum for several years now. Regardless of them being in a catalog they just haven't been making much or any of them and the value of the ones already out there has doubled or even tripled. I was just watching one on gunbroker and it was snatched up for $1,300
Marlin JM NIB MODEL 1894CS 357/38 Spc. No Reserve : Lever Action Rifles at GunBroker.com

I agree that Ruger should absolutely start making one because the Rossi versions are hit or miss with quality.

Marlin cranks out a bunch of the 336 lever guns in 30-30 win, but Marlin has a bad history of making poor choices for products and how many to make. They could literally sell tons of those 357 mag lever guns at a big profit, but they are too foolish to realize it.

Another option is the Chiappa Taylors 357 1892 Alaskan Take-Down

I bought a Remlin 1894C in March 2012.
It's a nice rifle with none of the flaws of the original Remlins.
I don't believe I have seen a new 1894C since.
Turner's sold out of them very quickly back then, so it is puzzling if Marlin has stopped production.

I also wanted a Marlin 1894 in .44 Mag and when a Rossi showed up for a good price at Big 5 Sporting Goods I bought it.
It was a very nice rifle with a light trigger, but as soon as a Marlin 1894 showed up at Turners in June of 2014 I bought it and sold the Rossi on a PPT for what I paid for it.
It is also a well built Remlin.

This is my 1894C


I don't seem to have taken a pic of my 1894.

I read an article this past fall that said that Marlin had moved all of the lever action tooling to another plant, and that they had the bugs worked out of the .44 mag, but not yet on the .357. The story (then) was that the "new" .357 was supposed to be available sometime in early 2016. They had showed someone (I think it was American Rifleman, but it might have been another source) a preproduction 357. So unless they gave up it should still be coming out.

My own opinion (though biased) is that the .357 rifle market is strong. Finding a Ruger bolt .357 is tough, and Timberwolfs (.357 pump rifles, no longer manufactured) are creeping up in value on Gunbroker. And Pedersoli is supposed to introduce a .357 pump at $2200. That, and the price appreciation of old Marlins, makes a good business case. I think Henry would be selling a lot more of their lever guns if they weren't tube magazines. I have one, like it, but would prefer a gate loader.

Really?!? They show a nice SS in .357 on their web site along with a blued version. A SS .44 is not available as both the .44 and .45 are in blue only.

The 1894 is the 44 mag, and the 1894C is the .357 mag.

Here's what I found. Links.

These have been in the catalog for years. That does not mean that they are available.

True 64Chevy, but the OP indicated they were not in the catalog so that is what we were verifying.

Personally I prefer levers in blue as, in my experience, the SS take some break in time or out right internal polishing to get to be reliable. This is with old pre Remmington Marlins, so the new ones may be better.

Yes, sorry, I let my emotions (irritation that their aren't more .357 rifle options available) get the better of me. I'd really like to see Marlin produce a modern, tuned up, .357 lever. (I'd even like it better if Ruger did it, but I'm guessing that won't happen. My Ruger wish is for a rotary magazine 327 Fed Mag bolt gun.)

The .357 m94c is NOT in the catologue. It is on the un-updated web sight.

Interesting, I stand corrected of ***-u-me-ing the web site would match the catalog. Marlin would not be the first with an outdated website.
