    Welcome New Members
    Just bought a used 1895 this week and have to say I'm loving it already, so much so I'm joining this forum. I'm a long-time shooter, first time buyer and decided to go with this rifle because it looks great, comes with lots of praise from current owners and I think it will be a fun choice for...
  3. 1895 Trapper paint job

    Photos of Custom Marlin's
    So I figured since the stock was already painted black from the factory it wouldn’t hurt to play around with painting it myself. Here’s what I ended on.

  7. 1895 Trigger Plate compatability with 336?

    The 45/70 Govt.
    Hello all. I intend to put a curved grip and stock on my 1895. I have been looking for a trigger plate for the conversion to no avail. I did however notice that a lot of the stocks that I found online are listed as for the 1895 or the 336. I know that the 1895 is based on the 336, but I...
  8. 1895 Trapper or 1895 SBL?

    The 45/70 Govt.
    Trying to decide between the Trapper and the SBL. I have 2 1894 CSBL's and love the way they handle. Looking to make a move to 45-70 for a bigger punch when needed. The primary concern is the weight difference between the 2 guns and how it will effect the handling. Advertised weight of the 1894...

  11. Marlin 1895CBA 45-70 Brand New - Problem with the lever unlatching

    The 45/70 Govt.
    The lever that came on the gun is small and rectangle shaped which with my big hands I would get my knuckles banged with every shot, even trapdoor rated ammo. So, I looked over the oversize levers available for a straight stock (No Pistol Grip) and ended up putting on a Ranger Point Precision...
  12. Marlin Followers Offered

    Bear Tooth Mercantile
    On our site we offer both brass and stainless steel followers and people often want to know which is better. The truth is that it is really a matter of personal preference. The two materials produce very similar performance in the application of a magazine follower in a Marlin lever gun. It is...
  13. New 1895 Manufactured Oct 2018

    The 45/70 Govt.
    ​Just picked up a new 1895 from our local Rural King store. They received one new in the box with a manufacture date of October 2018. Wood looks good and solid fit for a base level gun. Lever action was a bit tight, but loosened up nicely with a little gun oil. Sights seem to be mounted...

    The 45/70 Govt.
    So there I was, mindin' my own business, and along came this beautiful 1895. She has one small problem though. Someone switched the buttplate for a pad and I'm looking to replace it with an original plate. I'm confused on what is the proper replacement. She was built in '78 with a straight cut...

    The 45/70 Govt.
    Hello and boy am I glad I found this forum. It looks like a wealth of knowledge. My question I have for you all is wether you think that this gun, the Marlin 1985 Guide Gun 45-70 is a bad first gun I’ve shot Co2 most of my life and a few break barrel rifles but never fired a real gun nor any...
  19. My New Stainless JM 1895GS - Checkering Removal, Refinishing, Sight Remodel

    The 45/70 Govt.
    Hello all, I purchased a beautiful 2009 JM-marked stainless 1895GS 45-70 last Saturday and decided immediately that I wanted to remove the checkering and refinish the furniture. At the same time, I slimmed down the forestock as it seemed unnecessarily bulky or "fat". Kind of reminded me of a...
  20. Warning read owners manual.

    Cowboy Rifles
    Hey all just a quick question. When did the 1895 cb rifles cease to have the "Warning read owners manual" stamp on barrel? Or did Remmington just forget to stamp it. I personally like it not being there.
