    1895MR Gone But Not Forgotten

    Well, its been a few yrs since posting on the 450 thread. Yeah she is gone. Gone I think to a trophy Whitetail hunter in Ohio...more power to him! Got top $ for it but she was worth it. My biggest black bear (2008 & my prettiest one 2012). Still got an early 1895G & a 1895 LTD IV...both in 45-70. Also really enjoying my pawnshop orphan, a 336 RC in 35 Rem (1967) & recently a 336A in 35 Rem (1951). So I'm not hurt'in for Marlys. Got a couple Pedersoli clones in 45-70. The latest, a highwall, cost me that 450 & a couple pistols (don't miss the pistols nearly as much). So I have 4 4570s, kinda like the needle is stuck in the groove in an old record (sorry you millinals).

    That 1895MR was the smoothest cycling & most accurate big bore lever I ever had. Love my new highwall but still remember my 1st love.

    I agree with you - I have quite a few Marlins and my MR is the best cycling one of the bunch (real close is a '51 336 though).

    I love my 1895MR. One of the smoothest cycling rifles that I own, and an absolute pleasure to shoot.
