Anybody have one of these. My uncle gave me one that belonged to my papaw. It's a model 1894 marlin lever action.It has the octagon barrell and curved butt plate. Pretty cool looking rifle. I've got to buy me a digital camera where i can post some pictures.

That is a nice rifle with family history. I have a new Marlin 1894 in .25/20 that I have had for about 10-12 years. It is a fun shooter and pretty accurate with the receiver sight I have on it. Back in the day the .25/20 was used probably for most everything; plinking or close range varminting would be its niche today I reckon. Plateau Hunter

my papaw was a coal miner up in Stearns Ky. He said it saw some time walking a picket line to keep out the scabs. lol

I dont have the gun but Ive got a box of remington klean-bore .25-20 ammo in my collection. It sure would make a nice close range varmint gun but thats about all Id ever us that caliber for.
