  1. Marlin Quality Since Remington Buyout

    The 45/70 Govt.
    I have been looking into the Marlin 1895G for a couple weeks now. This will be my first Marlin and I'm a little hesitant because of the things I have heard since they got bought out by Remington. Has the quality gotten better since? I put a Marlin 1895G on layaway this weekend. Has the 18.5"...
  2. Stock iron sights shooting low at 50 yards...

    The 45/70 Govt.
    Hi guys! So working on sighting in my 1895G (Remlin - manufactured Dec, 2015), and while I'm dead nutz right/left, I'm having issues setting the elevation. Out of the box, I was hitting about 14-16 inches low at 50 yards using Winchester factory 300g ammo. It looks like to be zeroed in for 100...

    Took our son, his girlfriend & my BIL to the range this morning in beautiful, warm Florida (think it was around 71 degrees & sunny). She had never held or fired a firearm previously - a young 22 years old. She started with a Marlin stainless model 60, then a Marlin 39AS, graduated to a Marlin...

    Welcome New Members
    Hello All, Two weeks ago I purchased my first Marlin, the 1895G (Guide Gun). It's a new-to-me rifle. My first used firearm that I ever purchased. Got it at a local gun store. It's in pretty good shape, one small scratch on the receiver and couple dings in the front hand guard, which is...
  5. AA 1680 for Sierra 300 GR HP .45-70?

    The 45/70 Govt.
    Hi all. I recently came into a box of Sierra 300 GR .45-70 HP (#8900) that I'd like to load for my 1895G. I only have (and can find) AA 1680 powder at the moment and I can't find any load data beyond the Barnes specs. I spoke to a Sierra tech and he was stumped. He was surprised they had no data...

    I have purty much stopped posting about marlins I see on the auction sites; today is an exception. Don't believe I have ever seen the breadth of the assortment at one time like there is at this very moment. On one site there is at least one each of the following ported beauties. This is every...
  7. Big Bore Range Day - Guide Gun Style

    The 45/70 Govt.
    Spent the morning at the range today taking out clay pigeons and chunks of wood. I just grabbed the .458 dia. plinkers off the rack to take along, even left the 444P at the ranch; she was whining when I got home. I ignored her cause I wanted nothing but the best with me today.:flute: You just...
  8. Range Day - 1st Time Shooter

    General Gun Related Off Topic Stuff
    Went to the range this morning with BIL, our son and his friend. It was a Marlin day for sure. Our son's friend had never shot anything but a red ryder prior to this day. Started her out on a 783, 22 mag Marlin and she quickly was on target and grouping nicely. Then moved on to the 444P. I...
