After too many years without a Marlin, I received one for my birthday last month from my awesome wife. Been shooting/hunting for almost 60 years and had a couple of Marlins early on but, sadly, they were sold in the interest of raising a family. I've run the gamut of firearms including every type of action and pretty much every combination there is but I've wanted another Marlin for a loooooong time and it had to be 45/70. The one I received is the 1895G and it's been a joy to shoot so far. I've had no instances of malfunctions or quality problems so I think she's a keeper. Bought some Hornady 325FTX when I got the gun and will be trying some different loads soon. Put a Nikon 2-7 Prostaff on it since the old eyes need all the help they can get. Been reading a lot here and there seems to be an unlimited amount of knowledge about the Marlin firearms.

Welcome from Everett WA. My story is similar to yours. Family and my job kept me away for 35 years , now I am retired and my son in law got me a model 60 it is a .22 but shoots very nicely and keeps me from driving the wife bonkers. Anyway lots of nice folks and info here.

Welcome to Marlin Owners. Wow, what a wife. You got a keeper with her.

Congrats on your new Marlin. Kind of weird how as we age we desire older cartridges and firearm platforms. Although, I have never been without my lever rifles since I was a teen.

Glad to have you aboard Punkin Chunkin.

Jack

She is definitely a keeper and I'm one lucky guy.
