Marlin is once again updating its lever-action lineup. The Marlin 1895 Trapper, one of the company’s most popular big-bore rifles, is now available with Magpul furniture to increase its practicality. The Trapper series has been a mainstay of the Marlin lineup for years, these rifles (including the 336 and Model 1894 variants) are your meat-and-potatoes hunting firearms, with only small changes bringing them into the 21st century.

Yes, the traditional hardwood stock is replaced with grey laminate. Yes, the traditional blued steel is replaced with all-weather stainless steel. There’s a cross-bolt safety; Skinner peep sights replace the old semi-buckhorn irons. But if you gave your grandpa one of these rifles, it’s basically the same thing he might have used to chase grizzlies decades back.

With adjustable LOP and cheek riser, the updated Trapper should fit shooters better. [Marlin]

The new Magpul-stocked version doesn’t exactly re-invent the wheel. It’s still the same bear-busting lever-action that wilderness guides—and wannabes, who want to look like them—buy for hard use in the bush. Same 5+1 capacity, same .45-70 chambering, same 16.1-inch barrel. However, simply changing up the furniture makes for useful improvement. Here’s what Marlin says about the changes:

Durable Magpul ELG stock and forend are capable of mounting a wide variety of accessories and are dimensionally stable in varying weather conditions.

Stock features an ammunition quiver for storage of six additional rounds.

Three length of pull spacers (included in box) change LOP in 1/2″ increments.

Cheek riser and two spacers (included in box) increase comb height for better sight alignment with optics. Cheek riser adds 1/2″ in height and each spacer adds 1/4″.

So the rifle should fit the shooter better, and if they need to reload in a hurry, the ammo is stored right on the gun. Or, in a situation where users may be in and out of boats and cabins and airplanes, the rifle can be unloaded and the shells stored on the rifle where they belong, not banging around loose in someone’s jacket pocket, lost in a time of emergency.

Storing the ammo right on the rifle, with no need for a sling, is a good idea. It ensures the rounds will be there when you need them.[Marlin]

Also note the forend and stock should take M-LOK and QD mounts respectively, making sling attachment a breeze.

The new rifle joins the Dark Series lever-actions in the now-owned-by-Ruger Marlin lineup. Given the tacticalization and practicalization of the lever-action scene, we expect more of this in the future, probably starting with Magpul-stocked versions of the rest of the Trapper lineup—see those rifles here.

MSRP for the new Mapgul-stocked Trapper is $1,649.
