I just purchased an 1895gs with work done by Brockman. I was going to build the exact same gun, and I sold my STBL to fund the project. Now I don't have to build one. It was in the classifieds here for a while. It has a 16" barrel, straight stock, Brockman front sight and looks like a DRC Winged rear, XS scout rail, and hopefully an action job. I can't wait to get it, but here are some pics for now. Funny, I was gonna build the exact gun, just need to add a Mule Loop or Brockman lever, my Leupold Scout, add some Piledriver Jr's, and I'm good to go I think.

Gotta love the 16" '95's. Sweet carbine! We should start a club of 16" owners....

Thanks fellas, like I said, it is exactly what I was wanting to build, so I'm tickled to say the least.

Being as they only have 16" barrels we probably should call them Trappers instead of carbines. It seems that anything with a 20" barrel or less is called a carbine. Besides, owners of 16" '95's are special afterall. ;D

edit; for thoughts of the club name.

"Team Trapper" has a ring to it.

I'll probably change it out, and put a large loop on it. I really like the looks of those slimmed down Brockman stocks too, hmmmmmmmmmm.........

Nice rifle, however if my eyes are seeing correctly there is an extra dovetail cut into the barrel! Now I've read time after time on this forum that extra cut is a "no-go". So having said that, what makes it any different from the so called SBL's with a GS barrel and extra dovetail? Other that Brockmans work on the internal issues? Just very interested. Thanks!

I noticed that as well. Not sure what it means. I will see when I get it and hopefully know a little more. I will be calling Brockman with the Ser. # to find out exactly what was done to it.

Not a problem, this is a result of Brockman's removing the original tubular magazine and adding an extened one. The "extra" dovetail slot showing is where the original magazine connected. Brockman's uses the original barrel so that is why you see an "extra" slot. If I had your rifle I sure wouldn't worry about it.

Thanks, that was kinda what I was thinking. I wasn't very worried about it, not a big deal to me. I was thinking it should hold 5rds, is that right?
