Well I got my first 45-70! Its a 1895 LTD I! This thing is in super shape. If it shoots as good as it looks it well really be great. I got it off GB.Payed dearly for it and the fellow I got it from threw in a new set of RCBS cowboy dies! He didn't have the box but had all paperwork along with two letters from Marlin. This will be my first venture into reloading. I can't wait to shoot it!
