Turnbull Restoration Co. is proud to announce a Marlin 1895 featuring Turnbull's finishes as the newest offering in its Turnbull Finished line of production firearms. The "Turnbull Finished" line is a series of historically significant and classic firearms that are finished using Turnbull's unique case color and other finishes to produce a classic gun worthy of being an instant family heirloom.
"The Marlin 1895 is a classic lever action rifle that is part of American history," said CEO and Founder Doug Turnbull. "It was the logical next gun in our Turnbull Finished line. There are still original production 1895s in use."
The Turnbull Finished Marlin 1895 rifles will be available in .45-70 Gov't with a 4 round tubular magazine. The action is the same as the original – lever action with a solid top receiver, side ejection and an integral hammer block safety. The 22 inch barrel features Ballard type deep cut 6 groove rifling at a perfect 1:20" rate of twist. The gun itself is 40-1/2 inches in overall length and weighs in at a comfortable 7 pounds.
The receiver, lever and hammer are finished in Turnbull's unique color case hardening using the traditional methods. All blued parts retain the Marlin original factory bluing. The wood stocks and forend are refinished by hand to match Marlin's original red shading and offer factory cut deep checkering. The rifles carry an MSRP of $1,300 and are available through Turnbull Restoration.
"When we started the Turnbull Finished line, our thinking was to honor these amazing guns that are as much a part of American History as the Liberty Bell ," said Turnbull of the Finished Line. "The Marlin 1895 is the most recent to join our historical guns hall of fame. We are looking forward to the next addition to this line."
All of the Turnbull Finished Marlin 1895 rifles are fully functional, tested and ready to go. Customers should visit www.turnbullrestoration.com/marlin1895 for more information, availability and to order.
