Just wanted to say hello to the members. I am a long time Marlin Lever Gun collector and shooter. My favorite cal. is the .45-70 and I'm thinking of having one of my 95's re-barreled to a .40-70BN Sharps round. I had a model 95 years ago re-barreled to the .40-70BN Sharps, but traded it for a .50-140 Sharps for shooting long range.
