    New member, question about a Marlin 1895 in 45-70 with a 31" octagon barrel

    Serial number makes it a '76? Way before the CB's or LTD's. Must be a custom aftermarket. I don't know if the factory would have taken a custom order for something like that in the '70's.

    Thank you, that is helpful. The guy I bought it from said the gun was inspired from the movie "Quigley Down Under", he did not know very much about the rifle; but he thought it came from the factory that way. But again, he did not seem to know much more than it has sat in the safe for about 20 years.
