Now this is cool. Suppressor-ready, blacked-out lever guns from Marlin. This is their new Dark Series and the first two models are available with 16.25-inch barrels chambered either in .30-30 or .45-70.
Above is the Model 1895 Dark Series in .45-70, threaded 11/16×24 for a big-bore suppressor like a Bowers 458 or a Liberty Goliath. Nice looking setup. MSRP is $949.
The Model 336 Dark Series is a .30-30 Winchester threaded 5/8×24. Same MSRP, same good looks.
We all know Marlin has been a bit hit-or-miss of late, but these guns felt smooth and well-fitted to me. We’ll be getting our hands on a couple for full T&E soon. Gotta love a suppressed lever gun!
