    Is anyone familiar with the production variants of the Stainless and Gray Laminate MXLR and XLR Marlin's? I know some of the MXLR 45-70's were built in 18.5" as scout rifles and I have seen a few in 450 with 18.5" barrels that were developed as production guns for Alaska Brush Hunting, I have...

    Recently got an 1895 gbl and hunt with ranges that extend to around 250/300 yards. Given the limitations with bullet drop(300gr fed premium fusion) what are recommended sighting ranges for minimal hold or adjustment. Thanks in advance.
  6. Reloading
    Had a strange one yesterday. Last week I loaded up 50 rounds of .45-70 as follows: Meister 405gr flat nose 32gr of IMR4198, hand weighed each. WLR primers. New star line brass, taper crimped with Lyman die. All rounds closely inspected before packing. I was loading rounds directly one by one...

    I am new to reloading and I am wondering how heavy to crimp. On one hand I read the bullet (resting in a tube as in a marlin GG) can be pressed in the cartridge case by recoil. So you have to crimp heavily as your life depends on it. Keep in mind that the pressure rises. On the the other hand i...
  8. The 45/70 Govt.
    Before I start, I would like to make clear that I am very new to reloading. That being said, I might be doing something that might freak some people out. With the limited amount of resources for ammo/supplies I do not have more than 6 selections of powder at any of the stores within a 50 mile...

    I am looking for guidance. Do you have experience with these ccop scope rings on a 1895 with 45-70 +P loads? CCOP USA 30mm Quick-Detachable Picatinny-Style Rings Matte (4 Screws) Would you recommend these or would you say "don't do it"?

    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...
  14. 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...

    ​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...

    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...
