Why hasn't Marlin offered a modern takedown 1894 model?
The price on the Japanese Winchester 1892 takedowns are very high. I would have thought that Marlin would have offered their 1894 in a takedown configuration by now. They could come in with prices hundreds less than the Winchesters, I would think, and would sell really well.
Ha. They can't even manage a suitable production run of their existing two (or three if caliber is part of the equation) 1894 variants without market revolt or availability issues. God help them if they tried to make one that came apart on purpose.
Just my thought.
That's what I thought ,the rifles they were making before they stopped making them were coming apart when they were not supposed to.So I guess they are half way there to making a take down rifle.
The thing is, they didn't even offer them in the last few decades, even before Remington was involved. They had a lot of different varients, but none of the 1894 models were takedowns.
