Marlin Introduces New Trapper Series Model 1895 With Magpul ELG

Founded 154 years ago—and now a subsidiary of Ruger—Marlin remains the dominant seller of lever-action rifles in North America, and it shows no signs of relinquishing that honor any time soon. It continues to offer new takes on the proven classic, and for 2024, that includes the new Marlin Trapper Series Model 1895, equipped with Magpul ELG reinforced polymer stock and forend.

Designed to be functional and attractive, the stock and forend offer durability and impervious to even the worst weather while still being M-LOK and QD attachment capable. The interior of the stock includes an integrated storage compartment that can hold up to six additional rounds.

“We are proud to partner with Magpul to bring our customers this exciting new rifle,” said Chris Killoy, Ruger CEO and president. “Magpul has an excellent and well-deserved reputation for making some of the best accessories in the industry. This will provide consumers with a top-of-the-line rifle of unmatched quality.”

Something Old, Something New

The Trapper Series Model 1895, chambered in .45-70 Govt, is outfitted with a 16.17-inch cold hammer-forged barrel with a 1:20-inch twist. The threaded barrel (11/16-inch-24) further comes with a match-polished thread protector and will accommodate common muzzle devices. The rifle’s stainless steel receiver, lever, magazine tube, and barrel also feature a non-glare, satin finish and black hardware. It comes with a length of pull spacer kit that allows shooters to increase the length of pull up to 1 1/2 inches – in half-inch increments. The rifle employs Torx screws that allow for easy disassembly and assembly.

The Marlin Trapper Series Model 1895 American-made lever-action rifle was manufactured with great pride and attention to detail. It is a 21st take on an American classic design.

It features a ive-round, tubular magazine with a loading gate located on the receiver; and positive, push-button, cross-bolt manual safety and traditional half-cock hammer. An oversized lever loop also provides clearance for operation with heavy gloves.

The new lever-action rifle’s upgraded Skinner Sights sight system is outfitted with a 6.25-inch Picatinny-style rail with an adjustable rear peep sight and a Bear Buster front sight. It offers users the option of either open sights or a rail-mounted optic, while a cheek riser kit for better sight alignment when using an optic is also included.
