Default marlin 1894 .44 mag

Just picked up .44 mag rifle. Shoots nice and love it.. been using remmington brand ammo but my dad bought some ammo for me .. it is cheap ammo dont even have a brand name ... Will it jam up like the blazer brand does?

Nice gun. If the ammo is nameless nobody can answer your question. Load up a single round and try it out. If it works fine ,load up 2 and so on.

It is such inferior grade ammo that only a certified ammunition dismantler should do anything with it. Send it to me, I am certified, and I will safely dispose of it.

You forgot the . Taking advantage of a 1st poster.
Short stroking the lever can cause jams.

Hi medieval77,

Welcome to the FTF

My experience with my 1894-.44mag was the first box of ammo

cycled roughly. Sort of like a new key in a new lock.

Be sure to use a crisp flick when you work the lever, it

helps. My 1894 has the most beautiful wood stock

(Black Walnut) I have ever seen.

I hope you were also as lucky...

Welcome to pistol caliber levers, that Marlin perfected and all others want to imitate. My 44mag likes Winchester(white box) in 240gr JSP. I got my 44mag used also, and when I first got it, it wouldn't load or eject a round, UNTIL, I oiled the receiver's innards and mag tube real good. Now, it'll eject a round 4ft away and load with smooth precision. Also, you need to be forceful and purposeful with levering these rifles, they hate short stroking and will jam every time. I've not heard good things about Blazer ammo in lever actions or semiautos. Use only brass casing ammo in the lever. Save the Blazer ammo for a revolver in 44mag which I know you'll have to get. LOL

Actually, ever since the advent of the .44 "AutoMag" of

Dirty Harry fame, I've wanted a .44 auto-loader.

I've found the return springs are so tight on my

DE44, they take a lot of kick out of the recoil. IMO,

there's less kick from the DE44 than a .357 Magnum

revolver.

So I've paired up my 1894 with my DE44. Not exactly Western style,

but it's a whole lot easier on the wrist...

I shoot 300 gr hollow points form mine... Little bit of kick, lots of knockdown!
