Today I took my new Marlin 1895 Cowboy to the shooting range for the first time. This rifle is definitely a shooter. Mild and very tolerable recoil with the But standard Remington 405 grain ammo was using. Rifle was shooting a little to the left so I'll have to make a sight adjustment the next time I take it to the range. other than that I couldn't be more pleased. Looking forward to taking this rifle afield hunting mulies come October.
