  1. The 45/70 Govt.
    Hi all, I'm a new member here. Reloading and casting in NZ. Into powdercoating too. Had great results with my bergara b13 and have just worked up my safety loads to confirm my backlog of older ammo is safe and actually pretty accurate in the new SBL. Seating depth is almost identical. Has anyone...

    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?
  3. 1894
    I wanted .44 Mag + pistol grip stock: I ended up buying an 1894 SBL. But I would prefer either wood or a brown wood laminate stock and forearm. Are any of the other pistol grip models, e.g., the 1895 GBL, a drop-in replacement for the 1894 SBL?

    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 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...

    I'm looking for feedback on what could have caused this damage. I've only put 28 rds thought this rifle, 14 -Hornady 325 Lever-evolution & 14- 405 Ultramax. While I was cleaning, the cloth was getting snagged in this piece of metal. I thought I may have seen metal shards in the receiver while...

    Does anyone have any experience installing or using one of these triggers in their .45-70? Sounds like a good upgrade. I just picked up a brand-new 1895 SBL last week and am preparing for a hog hunt in KY in a few weeks. Any information or feedback is appreciated. Thanks.

    Hi Everyone... new forum member here. I've read lots here, but never had a reason to post. Now I have an SBL! :) I'd like to mount the above scope on this rifle. Does anyone have any pictures of this combination? I'm trying to figure out which height Leupold QRW rings to go with, and I need to...
  10. The 45/70 Govt.
    First off I am new to the forums and hello to all! Seems to be quite the community here full of help! That being said just purchased a new 1895SBL today quite excited! I feel like a kid at Christmas. I know that the remlins have suffered from some quality issues and wanted to look closer at the...

    Hi everyone. I'm looking for a Marlin 1985 45/70 SBL or possible GBL - preRemlin.  If you are selling, or know of someone who is, please message me. I'd like to know the serial number of the gun if you have access to it, and the manufacturing year. Beyond that, it doesn't have to be "perfect"...

    There's a stunning SBL for sale on GunBroker. The SN starts with 91, so it would appear the be Pre-Remington, circa 2009. Stainless steel, nice walnut furniture, not the grey/green laminate, no scope rail. It has the pistol grip, big-loop lever and full-length mag tube. Was this the...
