1894 Cimarron Lever-Action Rifle: Cimarron Firearms Brings Back the Glory of the 1894 Lever-Action Rifle

Fredericksburg, Texas – (Ammoland.com Cimarron Firearms, a leader in authentic replicas from America’s Old West, proudly reintroduces one of America’s most popular and famous lever-action hunting rifles of all times.

The John Browning patented design was introduced in 1894 in two iconic cartridge chamberings, the 32-40 and the 38-55. It was the first American-made repeating rifle to chamber smokeless powder rounds. This was in 1895 when nickel steel barrels and the 30 WCF or 30-30 were introduced. The Model 1894 has been referred to as the “ultimate lever-action design” by firearms historians. More than 7,000,000 Model 1894 rifles and carbines were sold between 1894 and 2006.

The rifle’s sleek and simple design made it easy to mass produce while the well-balanced light weight made it a pleasure to carry.  The 1894 was owned by several U.S. Presidents and was used by the military in WW l. There is no question that the 1894 rifle was the choice of American hunters and was also used by peace officers throughout America.

Bryce Wayt, VP of operations at Cimarron says, “If there was ever an ‘America’s Rifle’, it was the Model 1894.”

Cimarron does it again. Working with the skillful gunmakers at Uberti in Italy, Cimarron brings you not only the 1894 carbine but the gorgeous 26-inch octagon barreled, case-hardened 1894 rifle that was discontinued in the mid-1930s. Much of America was still mounted on horseback, making the shorter carbine model, the 1894, the model of choice. Because of this and the introduction of other great hunting rifles, Winchester chose to discontinue the sleek and handsome longer barreled, ballistically superior 1894 rifles.

Today, a good, used original 1894 carbine may cost you $1,000.00, but the sleek original 1894 rifle with case hardened frame will set you back $3,000 to $4,000, or more.

Cimarron is introducing both rifle and carbine models in 30 WCF and 38-55 with the 32-40 WCF and 25-35 WCF coming mid-year. Carbines will be available with blued or case-hardened frames while all the rifle frames will be case hardened. All stocks are fine walnut and expertly fitted to the barrel and frame. Ask your favorite gun shop to check the 1894 Cimarron rifles and carbines out. They will not be disappointed.

  • The Cimarron Model 1894 20” Carbine is available now in 30 WCF and 38-55 WCF. MSRP $1,246.70.
  • The Model 1894 26” Octagon Barreled Rifle with case hardened frame is available in the same chamberings at MSRP $1,353.30.

What about the wc32 special

The 1894 Uberti Rifle And carbine will be in 30-30, 38-55, 32-40 and 25-35, the pistol calibers wouldn’t really work in a 1894, mainly due to the length of the bolt carrier, now Chiappa makes a great looking 1892 long barrel it’s also Octagon that comes in 357, 38 spec, 44 mag, 45 long colt. I just ordered the 1894s in 38-55 and 30-30, uberti makes some incredible rifles, they are made exactly like Winchester did in the late 1890s, fit and finish are flawless, the 30-30 has killed more elk and deer that any other caliber ever. I own… Read more »


A Model 92 in .327 Federal Magnum would be pretty snazzy. As a gun crazy teen in the 60s, on Wednesday nights I’d go to a friend’s to watch Outer Limits. The family rifle was a Model 94 in 25-35 with 26″ octagon barrel, smooth as butter and with nice patina, and credited with taking many mule deer in Nevada’s high desert. They were always nice enough to let me hold it while we watched TV. The idea of having virtually the same rifle today, new…be still my twitching trigger finger.


Cimarron Arms how about a 1894 lever action in 357 Maximum. Make the action use 38 Long Colt, 38 Special, 357 Magnum and 357 Maximum. This would be a great gun in areas where semi autos have been restricted. A good rifle for a range of game from coyotes, deer, hogs and black bear. Great for home and property protection.


rossi makes one. one of my fave plunkers

I bought a Rossi .22 cal. rifle like it except the mag. Doesn’t hold enough rounds 10 rds mag is all I have found for it and they are expensive in my opinion


If they bring on pistol calibers ie: 357& 44 mag, they’ll sell a bunch of em.

Thanks Cimarron on bring out your new model 1894 lever action rifle.
How about a run in 219 Zipper? And 7×30 Waters? And possible some wildcat cartridges-35 – 30-30 improved and 243 – 30-30 improved?
I’ll purchase a 25-35 when it becomes available.

I love the idea that some one is coming out with the 1894 in 25-35. That was my first rifle that my dad gave me for deer, and what ever i wanted to shoot. It is all about bullet placement, and the 25-35.
In 2013 someone broke in to our home and stole it out of a cabinet. Turned it in, but never heard a word. Wish i had the money for a new one

Sad that a Winchester rifle is being brought back by a different company. Particularly sad because Cimarron is having “America’s Rifle” made in Italy. Kinda like when you buy a U.S. flag and find the little tag, “Made in China” on it.
