You can\'t beat the price with Marlins rebate now. I have not shot my rifle yet, but just received it and checked for fit and function, ran a few dummy rounds through. I am very pleased. Beautiful bluing and wood to metal fit is about perfect. I am very impressed with the wood to metal fit, better than some of my JM Marlins. The forearm is not nearly as fat as some I saw a few years ago. Maybe they improved upon that. It\'s nicely shaped and fits the gun well. Walnut is nice, I still think the checking could be improved, and a nicer finish to the walnut, but it\'s not bad. The only nit picky thing on mine is the trigger seems heavy. It\'s extremely crisp, zero creep... but heavy. I would not hesitate a second to buy another Marlin going off this example I just received. It\'s my first Remington owned Marlin and I think it\'s very nice. I like the feel and fit better than a Henry I had for comparison sake. If it shoots good this is easy a 5 star reviewed gun, but only 4 stars for now till I see how accurate it is.

I bought the marlin 1895g and it was in great factory new condition very nice gun and shoots great, however the lever would not fully lock in the closed position and had to spend some money with a gunsmith to fix the problem.

Nice, handy, quick, accurate well built. Better looking than my old JM Marlins. The only issue I have is the hood on the front sight flew off on the first shot.

Review on the Marlin 1895 Guide Gun : I had one of these before and regrettably sold it, so when the chance to purchase one again came around, I jumped on it. I guess there have been some instances in the past where the quality of the Marlins went down after their takeover and move to New York, well it appears whatever issues they had before are gone. The fit and finish on my rifle are first class and spot on. Not only does it look great, but it shoots great too, couldn't ask for more. Another great experience was dealing with Bud's. After ordering, I was pleasantly surprised on how fast it shipped to my ffl dealer here in Hawaii...... and at a fantastic shipping rate ($25), trust me, this is great for Hawaii as we're always getting killed on shipping. And to top it all off...... on top of Bud's great price, Marlin had a $100 rebate on the 1895 series rifles!!!

I happened to get a nice piece of wood on my Marlin guide gun. The metal parts were nicely machined. You cannot beat Marlin for their bluing. The action is smooth but has a heavy trigger pull. At the range at 50 yards with factory sights 2.5 inch group. For me that's great. I chased out the checkering with a jewelers (v) file and re finished the stock to my liking which need not be done. In all a winner!

Fit and finish are excellent, with sharp / crisp checkering on the wood. On my particular rifle, the wood is MUCH NICER than I would expect... damn near show quality. I suppose sometimes you get lucky. Also, the \"Guide Gun\" version with an 18 1/2 barrel is nice to handle. The 45-70 is a powerful, stout round. If you are considering it, you know that already. I MAY change the sights to a ghost-ring set up, but that\'s just my personal preference. There\'s really nothing wrong with the factory setup. No issues or problems so far. Everything good.
