  1. The 45/70 Govt.
    I bought this rifle new back in 2019 when Marlin was still under Remington’s ownership. I loved the look and feel of the rifle and the fit and finish initially seemed pretty good. After purchase I took it out and it ran well both unsuppressed and suppressed. I shot several different kinds of...

    Hi there. I just picked up an 1895 and am pretty sure it’s one of the last JM 1895’s but can’t find much info on the SBL. JM stamped, serial # 91XXX… any insight?

    I have had a 1895 LTD 45-70 that I never use it.. it is in excellent shape (minus original box and paperwork). It is JM stamped with the white bullseye what is a good price for this rifle. I can’t find anything out there that is a current market price. It is 569 or 1000 made Thank you in...
  4. 336
    I've got a pistol grip 336Y that I'm converting to straight stock. I acquired a spare pistol grip trigger guard plate, and plan on cutting/grinding it down to work with a straight stock and lever loop, but before I start cutting, is anyone looking to convert the other direction and have a...

    I'm in early discussion with a friend about buying his 1895 in 45-70. I haven't seen the gun in years (it's stored elsewhere) but I think from memory it's a JM stamped 1895G with straight stock. According to him, it came from the factory Magnaported but he isn't the original owner. Can anyone...
  6. Reloading
    Would anyone be willing to share a lead free .450 Marlin load recipe with me worked up for an 1895M? I live in California so I can’t hunt with lead. Trying to get out on a hunt in February and don’t have time, money or the resources to spend on the work up myself with components being so hard to...

    Hi all. New to this site, and hope I'm putting this post in the right spot. It looks like the 1 piece firing pin issue has been talked to death on MarlinOwners and other spots on the Internet, and yet here's one more post. I think I could read for a very long time on the the pros and cons of...

    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...

    Who needs a Cheytac with a massive scope, bags and bipod? Mark and Sam after work. Impressive shooting:

    We finished some stainless steel medium loop levers after making some changes to our machining process. At the moment we have matte finish stainless steel available for the straight grip 1895's/Guide Guns. We will have the highly polished stainless and carbon steel for bluing available in the...

    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...

    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...

    Ive been looking for a Marlin Dark Series for a few months now and all Ive seen is 30-30 in stock. Does anyone have a 45-70 in stock willing to sell? Ive tried calling and emailing Marlin and they wont give specifics...only say they are "making them and shipping to distributors, and to contact...
  16. The 45/70 Govt.
    Ive been searching all over high and low for an 1895 DARK series, but everyone is out of stock. Ive been looking for a while and I havent been able to find anyone with them in stock and I havent heard anything about when Remington Outdoors will restock. Anyway, I read in a different thread that...

    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...

    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...

    ​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...
