    I've started on a quest - and maybe I'm making it harder than it ought to be. First - didn't Marlin make a short barrelled .44MAG in the 1894 action? If so, I can't locate it on their website - so I assume they are no longer making it. I've hit Gunsamerica and Gunbroker and have seen no ads posted for this gun. Maybe I just have a bad memory. If they did/do make one, what was it called, and what might be a going price?

    OK, more than two questions, same deal on their .410 lever action shotgun - I was thinking they brought back the 1895 in .410 in response to Winchester's 9410. I also don't see that in their online catalog. I have found a couple on Gunsamerica/Broker. Some are antiques in the $1,000+ area and others are new manufacture. Any ideas on prices for the newer models?

    Thanks!

    Remember, that these are made for the 2.5" 410! Ammo is a little hard to find!

    The Marlin 1894P was only made for a few years. Hopefully you can find one. Here is a write up on it with a 16 and 3/8 inch barrel.

    Thanks for the info Plano! That P suffix is what was eluding me. 2.5" ammo, huh? Hmm, maybe I need to reconsider. Any other decent 410 repeaters out there?

    45smf, the action is what dictated the length of the shell. I do not know of any lever repeater that would handle the 3" 410. Maybe someone else would know, but I do not. ;)

    I know that the last catalog of CDNN I received had a list of $489.99 on the 9410 Packer lever action. Download their catalog and you will find it here.

    Good people to deal with in Abilene, TX! I have bought a lot of stuff from them and never a problem.

    Every gun shop in my area has 2 1/2" .410 shells. As a matter of fact, they are easier to find than the 3" ones.

    Found a NIB 1894P for $450. And a 410 for $470. Any ideas on how these prices smell?

    BB says 100% - $440 for 1894P. What is the make and model of the 410?

    I think its actually called a Marlin 410. Looks like a 1895 with a shotgun bead on it. Model 410? Thanks for the details on the 1894, sounds like the guy is priced pretty close to correct.

    .45, you got it BAD!!!
    Winchester made a .45 Colt Trapper, from 1981-83, as I recall, with 16 1/2" barrel, which handles and shoots real good, with loads that would 'field strip' a Colt Revolver!
    Add to this equation, the fact that cut down .444 Marlin brass makes fine shotshell cases, and you may wish to re-direct your search!
    Mine will be in my estate, when I croak, but in the truck, til then; It just does too many things really well, to be anywhere else.
    Just a thought.

    To make it worse, I've found where Jim West up in Alaska will convert your 1895 45/70 over to one of their propritary rounds that will then shoot .410 shells. I need to learn a bit more about their rounds.
