This is my first post on this forum and the other night my first Marlin followed me home. It's a model 1895 45-70 that I will be using to hunt Ohio deer this year. I have been using my Contender in 44 mag or 357 max for many years but it will be nice to use a rifle for a change. My 1895 is a new Remlin but the wood has some nice figuring and color and the fit is good. The trigger pull is ok, the action is a little rough but nothing I can't fix with my dremel tool. (just kidding). Right now I am planning to use an Inline muzzle loader scope on it but have also thought about some sort of red dot. I am open to suggestions.

Welcome from Texas. The 45-70 is a lot of fun to shoot. Make sure you plenty of eye clearance on it. :)

That's the reason I was thinking about the inline scope, lots of eye relief. 45-70 is fun to shoot many years ago I had a trap door carbine made by H&R that would kill on both ends.

Welcome from NE Indiana and congrats on being a new Marlin owner. My wife learned to shoot ML with a H&R muzzle loading version of the trapdoor. It still had all the notches in the tumbler the trapdoor had. Nice gun to shoot but the lockwas way to much for that weight rifle.
