Marlin 1895 Lever Action Rifle From Jurassic World



If you just saw the new movie Jurassic World I’m sure you’re wondering, what lever action rifle was Chris Pratt using the movie? I was wondering the same thing as soon as I saw it on screen. It’s a pretty sweet looking rifle, I’ve always had a thing for lever actions.


Well apparently it’s a Marlin Model 1895SBL chambered in .45-70 Government per IMFDB. Just like with the SPAS 12 shotgun from the original Jurassic Park movie the Marlin 1895 lever action is sure to be an iconic gun from the franchise.

In case you want to build a clone the rifle in the movie seems to also be using a Butler Creek Ultra Cartridge Sling, FX-II Scout IER 2.5x28mm Scope, and Leupold Rifleman Detachable See-Thru High mounts. Thanks to the commentor below for pointing that out.

In case you’re wondering the other gun in the above picture is also using a Crimson Trace Laser.


  1. I don’t recall home killing or even slowing down any animals with that rifle. Ironically the girl saves him with a semi auto AR, pumping rounds into the teradactyl.

    • You don’t recall the pterodactyl scene either. They were gas-powered rifles shooting tranquilizer darts. But hey, how dare these fiction movies not be 100% factual.

  2. So , I know other people are curious about the scope and sling… here are my findings.

    sling : Butler Creek Ultra Cartridge sling
    scope: FX-II Scout IER 2.5x28mm
    mounts: Leupold Rifleman Detachable See-Thru High

    • Chiming back in to you guys.

      I just mounted my scope on mine and came to a conundrum. It looked a little high and I realized why …

      In the scenes of the movie where the gun is used namely just after the motorcycle ride the high scope mounts are equipt .

      while in promotional shots and when the rifle is slung the scope mounts appear to be mid to low scope mounts.

      Just as well if you get a scout scope it is actually mounted forward of receiver they moved it back for movie gowers

      (my eye piece sits over the ghost ring in stead of over the hammer like in the movie)

      Just wanted to make sure people were aware in case they wanted it accurate to when he has it slung.

      The high mounts allow you to use the ghost sight fine you might be able to still use them with mid but the low which Is pictured when slung the sights on the rifle would be inoperable.


  3. Thoroughly enjoyable movie and an excellent rifle, however the half jacket soft/hollow point bullets in Chris’s vest cartridge loops would not be my first choice for stopping thick skinned critters.

  4. We’ll have to blame the director or editor for any “semi-auto levergun” scenes. Chris Pratt knows how the gun works. He owns one.

  5. the Marlin 1895 Guide Gun is a great weapon. It is not magic however. In the movie, I saw Chris Pratt firing frequently and rapidly without pausing to work the lever action. I can’t get mine to do that.
