    Recent Remlin 1895g Quality?

    Greetings Marlin Men!

    I was wondering if any of you have handled a recent manufacture classic guide gun. If so, how did you feel about it?

    About a year ago I bought a 1895 CBA that had some stock fit issues but is otherwise a great gun. Part of the reason I bought it is that most folks thought that the cowboy guns seemed to have a bit more QC but now I realize I need to have a scoped 1895 and I am not about to ugly up the old time looks of the octogon barrel with a 4x tube, thus the 1895g is under consideration.

    Luckily there is one locally to look at and I was wondering what are the critical areas to look at beyond the action being crunchy and the wood to metal fit?

    Thanks in advance for your advisement!

    Tom

    In my experience with the Remlins, they are going to have to be taken individually. I've looked at a dozen or so, bought one of them, and saw 2 more I would have bought...

    So, hands on purchase or inspection period for internet purchase...

    Besides the obvious fit and finish I would try to operate the action in every conceivable angle to see if you can induce a jam. I have noticed that butstock to action fit has been bad on a lot of Remlins I have inspected lately. I am not sure if the off set sights are still a problem but that can be checked out. I agree with Scorpiusb it has to be taken on an individual basis.

    Yeah, my recently-purchased 1895SBL seems to be perfect aside from the 0.5mm gap between the stock and receiver that I want to fix before I shoot it. I didn't look at any 1985Gs in the store.

    saw mine (ssgg) at the lgs. inspected it and with a good price - bought it on the spot.

    my first 1895 bought in the 80s has a killer piece of wood - and it went back to marlin 3 times before it functioned reliably - ALL the time...

    now it's my second favorite..

    my favorite? yeah, the new ssgg - which is built like a tank!

    I bought my 1895 SBL last year, it was manfactured in 2017. It looks good, the stock is fitted well with a small, even gap and it functions and shoots well. While not horrible I would like to better checkering. Other then that...no complaints.

    I have an 1895SBL that I have had for 4 or 5 months now. I have 240 rounds downrange, and it has been 100% flawless. Manufacture is good, I don’t have anything uneven or that requires attention. Frankly, it’s a blast to shoot!

    The same store I bought mine from has two brand new guide guns and they look good as well.
