Based on the same platform as the Marlin 1895 SBL, the Marlin 1895 Trapper boasts a shorter, more maneuverable 16″ barrel, offers a bead-blasted, satin stainless finish for low glare in the field and rapid acquisition with the adjustable Skinner Sights™ receiver-mounted peep sight system.

This American-made lever-action rifle was manufactured with great pride and attention to detail. You can expect the same time-honored design as the traditional 1895, combined with Ruger’s trusted reputation for producing high-quality, reliable firearms.
