Customer Reviews 19 Customer Reviews Average 4.1 out of 5 Alfred C I purchased this gun to hunt Deer in Ohio. I too was a bit apprehensive due to some rather bad reviews. Remington seems to have solved their manufacturing problems. This rifle functions well and the accuracy is hard to believe. With Remington factory 300 gr loads, Hornady 325 FTX hand loads or Honady 350 grain handloads it will consistently shoot around 1” at 100 yards. With some thrown together 420 grain home cast test loads it shot around 3” at 100 yards. I had heard these rifles were crazy accurate, but I thought it was exaggeration. Contrary to popular belief the 45-70 does not destroy much meat, you can almost eat up to the bullet hole.
The only complaints I had were the rather rough trigger pull and the robust recoil. My neighbor whom is a gunsmith improved the trigger pull immensely within a few minutes by three strokes with a stone. He said it had a few burrs and all he did was remove them. Trigger pull dropped from a rough 6.5lb to a smooth 3.5lb. Recoil with the 300 grain factory loads was robust, with the mid range (1800 fps) 350gr handloads it was painfully brutal. Removing the factory recoil brick and replacing it with a soft Limbsaver pad made a huge difference. The 350 gr reloads still jump like crazy, but they are now comfortable and even fun to shoot. Buds service was excellent. The rifle is attractive, the action is smooth, it points well, swings well, with the few minor changes it is now excellent in all respects. 2 months ago Kevin M I was mire than a little apprehensive about ordering this gun given the mediocre feedback, but I must say I am very impressed with it. The fit and finish is exactly what I expected bandit cycles like many other Marlin lever actions I have used. It fed and extracted perfectly. I bought thus 45-70 to take on a buffalo hunt and am veryhapoy I did....great job again to buds guns on a smooth transaction and a continued happy customer!!! 5 months ago Show More Reviews...
