His badge number was 45-70. Just picked up this beauty an 1895gs in a trade it's the first 45-70 I have ever owned. Came with the leather butt cuff from galco and matching sling. It had two boxes of Hornady leverevolution and a half box of some other ammo. It may be for sale or trade here shortly since I collect pistol caliber 1894s but I must admit it is so pretty I may decide to keep it. What value would you put on it with the accessories and the ammo?

Beautiful rifle, I wouldn't part with it, personally. A good JM stainless anything will increase in value and collectivity as time goes by. Sell it, and the regret will follow.

Thanks guys I took the buttcuff off and snapped a few pics. It looked fine. On a side note will the stock fit an 1894? I have an 1894 with a limb saver pad installed that might be more suitable for this 1895 than the 1894 44 mag I bought it on?

Refinish that stock with a rubbed oil finish and man that rifle would SHINE. Good looking rig there buddy.

Keep that bad boy. You will regret getting rid of it, just because she aint a pistol cartridge rifle. There is so many levels you can reload and it will knock the snot out of any thing you hit with it.

Well, since they make a pistol in 45-70... I say you keep that little gem.

I'm with the KEEP IT crowd! That is one that will be harder to replace should you have sellers remorse later down the road.

Nice looking rifle, congrats! I know I would be keeping it... :biggrin:

For info, sometimes leaving a cuff, slip on pad, etc., could lead to some discoloration of the stock over time. I have a nice older shot gun I bought used that had a "two-toned" stock caused from that; be it from sun exposure, handling, oils, or whatever, there is a distinct line of color difference on the stock. Over the years it is not as evident as it once was, but take a good look and you can still see it.

Hey Bar 7,

Fine looking rifle, and a great score!

Am with the "keep it" crowd. (no matter how many head of game you have taken, the 45/70 will "surprise you", in how fast it "rolls" them!) LOL

Later, Mark
