    I swear by my brake/noise reducer custom LAW Brake by Mic McPherson as I described in my thread:

    (https://www.marlinowners.com/forum/b...-70-setup.html)

    I use it on both my 1895 .45/70’s, easily switched, but its recoil reduction is most appreciated on my 16.5” Trapper.

    Thanks for the nice words. I was sorta skeptical when Mic first suggested it as he was customizing my Trapper, but became a believer when trying it on and off and on again. Both blast and recoil is reduced, so I had him thread my Trapper’s bigger brother and switch to either now.

    Like I said, some sort of rocket science design.

    I bought the 45/70 in an auction on Gunbroker.com. It will ship tomorrow to my FFL dealer in California. Ten days after that I can pick it up. I have a few questions. What is the jm stamped on the barrel ? The gun already has a older 3 x 9 Simmons scope. I want to replace it with something newer. What would be the optimum power for a 45/70 ? As I get older I am not as accurate with iron sights as I used to be. What is the effective range of the 45/70 ? What is the best weight cartridge ? Any help I can get will be appreciated. 45/70 is new to me. Thanks

    Congrats on your new acquisition, but your questions sound like the subject for a new thread? I would first like to know what type of hunting/shooting you wish to set up your new/used levergun for?

    Depends on where you hunt. What kind of terrain will Deer season find you hunting?
    EX... I primarily hunt Alabama Swamps. A long shot where I hunt is 50-75 yards. Pistol range with Iron sights. I've had 336 and 45/70s with a 1x5 or 1-6 mostly, but I prefer to hunt with a Skinner Peep Sight.
    If you find you like Mountain hunting, you might be better served with a 3x9.
    BTW: The JM is stamped on rifles that were made in the Marlin plant before the buy out... After Remington bought out Marlin the rifles no longer had the JM.
    The JM rifles are prized for generally being better made. I'm willing to believe it, because I own a couple of JM rifles.

    Kick-EEZ pad.

    Those rocket ports work. A guy came into the shop with a Savage 30-06 bolt action. The barrel had been cut to 18 inches and rocket ports drilled in. I fired it a few times and the recoil was greatly reduced, to my surprise.

    Quite a felt recoil reduction difference firing 400gr bullets at 1800 fps from my 45-70 Traditions Outfitter G2 with muzzle brake installed.
