Marlin Model 1895 Trapper Lever-Action Rifle: First Look

Marlin Model 1895 Trapper Lever-Action Rifle: First Look

Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. (NYSE: RGR) announces its reintroduction of the Marlin Model 1895 Trapper.

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. 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 an attractive non-glare, satin finish – as do all of the small, nickel-plated parts. The bolt is spiral-fluted and nickel-plated for an attractive appearance and very smooth cycling.

The receiver-mounted Skinner Sight™ system is as accurate and rugged as the rifle itself. Machined from solid stainless steel bar stock, this durable, no snag, fully adjustable sight system promotes rapid target acquisition while adding to the aesthetics of the rifle.


The black laminate stock and forend feature a crisp checkering pattern that provides an excellent grip in all weather conditions. A generous buttpad absorbs recoil and makes the rifle easy to shoot. The forend has been slimmed down for an attractive look and a comfortable feel. Consumers will notice that the trademarked black and white Marlin “bullseye” found in Marlin stocks since 1922 is still there, but in red and white.
