I know I want a 1895CB 45-70, I have been reading to buy one with a JM on it and not the REP whats the defference? I have also been looking online and all the shops say they are out of stock for this model are they still making the CB model?
They are still making them. Keep looking for a JM proof mark as they were made by craftsman. The REP have been problems due to poor craftsmanship!!
If you keep looking you should be able to find a JM. Don`t be afraid to buy a nice used one. Check Cabelas gunroom, Guns America, etc. Good luck & keep looking. 444 8) 8) 8)
