First Look: Marlin Trapper Series Model 1895 Rifle With Magpul ELG Furniture

Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. is introducing the new Marlin Trapper Series Model 1895 rifle, equipped with Magpul ELG furniture.

This new rifle is styled after Ruger’s original Trapper Series rifle and features a Magpul ELG stock and fore-end. The ELG furniture is constructed of reinforced polymer for durability and is impervious to even the worst weather. Designed to be both functional and attractive, the stock and fore end are M-Lok and QD attachment capable for added utility.

“We are proud to partner with Magpul to bring our customers this exciting new rifle,” said CEO and President, Chris Killoy. “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.”

The interior of the stock features a storage compartment that holds six additional rounds should you need them. The rifle ships with a length-of-pull spacer kit that can increase the length of pull up to 1½ inches in ½-inch increments. Also included is a cheek riser kit for better sight alignment when using an optic.

Chambered in .45-70 Govt., this rifle features a 16.17-inch long cold hammer-forged barrel with a 1:20-inch twist. The barrel has a 11/16×24 thread on the end to accommodate common muzzle devices and comes with a match-polished thread protector.

The stainless steel receiver, lever, magazine tube and barrel feature a non-glare, satin finish and black hardware to give the rifle a distinctive appearance. The upgraded Skinner Sights sight system is ideal for fast target acquisition and features a 6.25 inch long Picatinny-style rail with an adjustable rear peep sight and a Bear Buster front sight. This durable, no-snag system offers users the option of either open sights or a rail-mounted optic.

MSRP for the Marlin Trapper Series Model 1895 with Magpul ELG furniture is $1,649, and more information on this rifle and other products from Marlin is available at
