Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. has introduced the Marlin Trapper Series Model 1895 equipped with Magpul ELG furniture.

Stylized after Marlin's original Trapper Series rifle, this model features the Magpul Industries ELG stock and fore-end. Constructed of reinforced polymer, the ELG furniture is durable and impervious to even the worst weather. Designed to blend form and function, the stock and fore-end are M-LOK and QD-attachment capable.

"We are proud to partner with Magpul to bring our customers this exciting new rifle," said Ruger 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 an integrated storage compartment that holds six additional rounds, should you need them. The rifle ships with a length of pull spacer kit that, once installed, can increase the length of pull up to 1 1/2 inches (in 1/2-inch increments). Also included is a cheek-riser kit for better sight alignment when using an optic.

Chambered in .45-70 Government, this rifle features a 16.17-inch, cold hammer-forged barrel with a 1:20-inch twist in its six-groove rifling. Its muzzle is threaded to 11/16-24 TPI, and comes with a match-polished thread protector. The rifle holds five rounds in its tubular magazine.

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. Torx screws make disassembly and assembly easy, also adding to the modern aesthetic.
