Out of box love the rifle have shot about 200 rounds over past several weeks. I have the bruise on my shoulder to show it. Shoots 1" groups at 100 yards with a 1.5 - 4x 28mm scope. Found a number of cuts on my hands after handling, the lever to the rifle out of the box needed deburred. The finish on the lever had a lot of sharp edges. I was a little surprised that Marlin would not finish the lever better. I took a dremel to it and various grit sandpaper, it's fine now. The the prettiest job but it gives it some early patina that gives the gun character. A hammer spur comes with the rifle to add onto the hammer to assist with cocking it with a short eye relief scope. Unfortunately, the spur's allen screw was not threaded correctly by factory. I called Bud's who contacted Marlin and Marlin agreed to send me a new spur in the mail. Still waiting for that spur to arrive. Realized after shooting a couple hundred rounds that a short eye relief scope on this rifle would eventually give me a a "scope eye". Picked up a scout scope with a 6" eye relief. Love the rifle and the round, highly recommended. Scope is zero'd in, ready to go kill some pigs in the Everglades.

Was a little nervous after reading some reviews on other pages, but this thing is awesome! Fit and finish are great. Just an overall great looking rifle. Hopefully it shoots just as good! I will update my review when I have a chance to try it out!

This beautiful masterpiece is everything I could've hoped for. Perfect condition, everything lines up correctly. Your friends will be jealous of the Marlin SBL.

Shipped quick. Overall fit and finish are great. The quality is there. My only complaint is the action would hang up a few times when attempting to close the lever. Something was binding up. If you closed the action with a purpose, it would work. I have older Marlins and this was never a problem. As it is now breaking in, it is getting much better. I do like the rifle and would recommend it! I will take it hunting this fall. Beautiful rifle in person!! Thanks Buds for quick shipping.

This was another purchase at Bud's at an excellent price. There is no question that this is my favorite rifle in the collection. It is compact and very fast handling. The peep sights are very easy to use and I like the rail in case I would want to add some type of optic. The action is smooth and feeds the large .45/70 shells well. The trigger is good for a hunting rifle. This gun is just fun to shoot. We like to shoot watermelons at 200 yards. I hand load lead cowboy ammo for general range shooting and load hunting ammo at three different levels that will handle a wide spectrum of game. Every hunter should have one of these Marlins.
