If you are looking for a hunting rifle that harkens back to the rugged days of the West, frontiersman, and just good ole’ Americana roots, then look no further than the Marlin 1895 Modern Hunter. This classic looking rifle delivers modern day accuracy and force while maintaining the classic look and feel of a civil war era weapon.
A Modern Twist on a Classic
It’s the classic American long gun, a tool of history and just as much a symbol of the Old West as the six-shooter. The Marlin brand is synonymous with lever-action repeaters. It’s a rich tradition, with a heritage stretching back to the Model 1881, their first centerfire, and the Model 1891, their first rimfire. In fact, American legend and famed sharpshooter, Annie Oakley, trusted the Model 1891 above all others to demonstrate her impeccable marksmanship.
Marlin features are virtually everywhere. In fact, it’s almost impossible to get a quality, proficient hunting rifle without Marlin being involved in the process at one point or another. The lever-action Marlin 1895 Modern Hunter brings enough stopping power to take down big game like moose and bears and will stop the average buck right in his tracks. You can even monitor your hunting with a trail camera which will allow you to watch back the beauty of using this particular rifle. Not only is the rifle only $979.00, the Modern Hunter provides an extremely well-built rifle at a price that sounds like it’s from the 19th century!
The 1895 Modern Hunter has received a lot of praise for being an excellent all-around rifle, and it was even picked by the NRA’s American Rifleman as one of the best guns of 2017.
The 1895 Modern Hunter comes in an assortment of different stock colors, from a modern green laminate and black design to various vintage designs that pay homage to the rifles of the Old West. Some of the top features of the Model 1895 include:
- A lever that’s stronger and easier to operate than previous lever-action Marlin models.
- A choice between four, six, and nine capacity tubular magazines.
- Three different barrel lengths to choose from: 18.5”, 22”, and 26”
If you want a powerful gun that easily takes down big bucks and is designed for the tough-to-stop game like bears, hogs, and moose, the Model 1895 is the perfect rifle for you. Not only is it well-equipped with everything you need for a good hunt, but the classic look and feel will have you feeling like a true frontiersman.
