What can I say it is a 45-70, plan on using it for a backup gun for while elk hunting in colarodo,I have been using hornady ammo with good results. Gun arrived at the dealer in perfect condition.

I wasn't really looking to buy this gun, but saw it on sale and saw the Marlin rebate, so well, the rest is history. I took it to the gun range, but they wouldn't let me shoot it there, so I bought a 4x4 post and took it to the farm. I haven't shot a high caliber rifle like this before, so I was somewhat apprehensive about how it was going to handle. What I found out is this gun is FUN to shoot. The ammo is a bit pricey, but not completely unreasonable. This rascal shot completely through the post and who into the cotton field. I watched a YouTube video on cleaning and did the easy clean myself. The dude in the video completely stripped his rifle, but I don't think I'm quite up that challenge just yet. Back to the gun... again, fun to shoot and I can see it will be a good hog gun. Just ordered a rail to attach a scope, I'll let you know how that works out. Thanks, Bud and Marlin for my new toy.

I have been eyeing this model of 1895 and despite the rep remlins have gotten over the years I decided go give it a shot with the current rebate going on. The fit a nd finish were great, the wood looked good and fit well and the bluing looked nice. Loading door was stiff but I had no issue loading rounds. Action felt rough but smoothed out greatly after cleaning and lubing and working the lever a few dozen times. The length is very handy and is quick to shoulder and sight your target. Trigger is heavy but not terrible. The only issue I had with this rifle was with thd front sight, it was way too tall. Even with the rear sight fully elevated this rifle was shooting low. Easy fix though, just add a shorter front sight. I was planning on adding xs sights anyhow. The rounds I shot had a tight group and windage was dead on, just low. As always Buds was great. I am glad I gave this rifle a chance.

Buds had great service as always on this one. Fit and finish is good and despite the big bore is a blast to shoot. Iron sights are spot on at 100 yds and I\'m still undecided on scoping it or not. My other half wouldn\'t leave mine alone so I ordered another one for her.

Ordered the Marlin GBL and shipping was very fast. I had heard all the horror stories about the Marlin remlins but I think Marlin is back. The fit and finish on my rifle were perfect. The rifle is extremely accurate and functions perfectly. The trigger is a tad heavy but smooth. I really love this rifle. Order with confidence.
