    I’d rather have 4 or 5 Remlins for that amount of money. Statistically, at least one or two should be a great shooter. Lol. My 2011 gsbl model has been great.

    I bought my made in 2000 JM Model 1895 for 500 bucks about two years ago. Got a 2000 JM 1895G (ported) for 450 bucks about a year later. Deals are out there if one looks.

    Odds are slim your gonna find a good deal on a JM SBL, they only made about 500 of them. Other JM guide guns are out there in numbers so those are possible.

    There are deals still to be found, but they a far and few between lately. I picked up a second 1895GS ported a couple months back for $750 after shipping and fees. I think there are more people looking for JM Marlins than ever before. My LGS told me last time I was in that they had people calling to see if they had any JM XLR's on their shelves. They even bought an 1895SBL to have so they could try and flip them to it. That is the first new Marlin I have seen on their shelves in years.

    One could always buy a JM 1895XLR and convert it into an SBL. It would still be expensive, but not $2500 expensive.

    Everytime I think that--something always pops up unexpectedly for a fair price. That how I got a lot of my Marlins.

    I'd find a JM model and make it my own custom before I'd spent that kind of money

    If you're spending that much you may as well go whole hog and get something from Grizzly Custom.

    Jeez, friend of mine is selling a sweet 1895G ported with some extras JM stamped for $600 right now. I don't see how a few inches of magazine is worth that much more. Crazy.

    I just laid away an 1895 CB, which i will have in the house within 2-3 weeks. I'm paying 775.00 for it, new. I'd love a JM original, but just couldn't swing that kind of coin for one. Taking a chance I guess, but optimistic. Before I even shoot it, its going to my gunsmith for a teardown and polish job. I'll keep you guys posted on what he finds, then how it shoots once I get to that point in time.

    Update 10-18-19 I have located a JM orignial, a real Gem. Getting things moving to get it home. This one looks to be special. More to follow.
