The Emil FLues 1881 is somewhat OT here, but here's a picture of it.

Absolutely beautiful collection Vall! Stunning. And of course, you know I love that M1881 Marlin. This sure all makes for a great day at our gunshow today. By the way, that Marlin half SRC - what caliber?

The half carbine, half rifle takedown was a .25-20 caliber. I had the chance to buy a 1893 rifle in the same configuration a year or so after I found this 1894, and passed on it because I didn't want to take money out of savings to buy it. I regretted that choice for a long time, until I sold the 1894.
I picked up this 1894 deluxe a couple years ago as an investment to resell. Someone had blued the receiver, and I planned to strip it and send the receiver out to be color cased. But when I use naval jelly to strip the bluing, I found remains of the original case color under it! So I just screwed the barrel back on it, and reassembled it. Another .25-20, with Lyman windage front sight, and Ballard vernier midrange rear!





Under the hot bluing:

The .25-20 you refer to is still with me. I also bought the M1893 your refer to. It was a .25-36. It was neat to have the pair of them. Neat they were both in .25 caliber as well. However, I was never completely happy with the M1893 as the buttstock was off a different gun.

Vall - that is a nice-looking Marlin .25-20. I do recall the details of this one. Cool that you were able to simply remove the added blue from the receiver and didn't need to have it redone. It kind of reminds me of a Winchester M1892 .25-20 I have here:

I realize we are a bit off topic here, but hey, it is a gunshow smile

Minor issue since the receiver did have a saddle ring, the fact the serial number didn't match didn't bother me a bit. With a saddle ring, and a carbine buttstock and buttplate I was fine with it. Had it had a crescent butt, and a saddle ring on the receiver I'd be bothered.

I was surprised the 1894 above wasn't polished out before they hot blued the receiver. But happy too. I think whoever blued it had no idea what they were doing. They just disassembled the receiver and dropped everything into their bluing tank....thank goodness! Never stripped a Marlin receiver before and found case colors.
The Schoyen Ballard in the green lined Hereford hide case was all hot blued when I found it. I stripped it also, and sent parts off to Al Springer who color cased it, and rust blued the barrel. Poor gun was really ugly hot blued.

You're right. I shouldn't have let that buttstock bug me. The numbers weren't even that far off from the number on the receiver. By the way, your deluxe .25-20 - those are some fantastic sights!

I've only come across two of the Lyman windage combination globe sights in all my years of collecting. This one, and one other on a Winchester High Wall in .22 Short with a #4 weight barrel. Sold the High Wall, but if I ever sold this deluxe 1894 I'd put a Marlin sight up front and keep the Lyman windage combination sight.

Anyone have a 1895 light weight Deluxe? It is a gun I would like to own.

Also, does this 1895 look familiar to anyone? This is not mine, but I want it to be. I'm still stalking it.
