Yay Buds...14 and counting. With all the negative press Marlin has gotten I really didn't know what I was getting into, but I pressed buy anyway. I am not disappointed I did. I wasn't expecting such a well made, handsome rifle. I would not call it a perfectly crafted, heirloom quality firearm but it is well made, especially at this price point. It feels very solid and had a reasonably smooth action out of the box. Cleaned, lubed and cycled several times and the action became much smoother as expected. Took it to the range and I honestly cannot remember the last time I had so much fun. The rifle functioned flawlessly and man does this thing thump. It is accurate with the stock sights but planning to add an Aimpoint Micro for hog busting and defense when in the Northern Rockies. If you are on the fence about Marlin quality, no worries, the 1895GBL rocks!

service from buds was top notch just like always, my marlin was not top quality. besides the rough fit and finish the rifle would group with any ammo. spent more time at marlin then in my hands. man just all around let down by marlin should have bought a henry.

Buds gun shop is one of the best companies I have ever dealt with. They keep you informed all along the way on your orders, they ship fast and the item is as described. I see retail stores in the next 20 years closing because online shopping is a more personal experience. And I did my research before buying this rifle and NO ONE could beat their price. Thank you Buds Gun Shop for selling the best products at a good price. You are the best and will have my business in the future.

Well, what can I say about the 45-70 that hasn't been said. I did run a cleaning patch through the barrel, it came back clean. Great looking rifle, the range experience was great. The sights were on enough that I was hitting 8 inch round steel at 100 yard consistently. Having never shot a big bore rifle I was a little tense on the first shot. The recoil was substantial. but not as bad as I thought it was going to be. Overall, the gun looks great, the range experience was great, great responses from a couple of buddies that shot it. Yeah, great gun. Would recommend the gun and Bud's Gun Shop.

Great gun, good looking, and good shooting. The barrel was very dirty in the bore when I received it and took quite a while to clean, that\'s the only knock I have.

Here's the brief; my rifle was produced in June of 2016 (purchased from Bud's in June 2017) so let me say these newer Marlins seem to be running a lot better than what they were selling after the Remington buyout. My wood to metal fit was pretty decent which was a pain point for a long time and the metal finish looked fine, no obvious blemishes. I will say the action was a little rough to work, after taking it down I noticed the edges were a little rough throughout, specifically the opening on the footplate, the channels cut into the bolt and a few spots on the lever that pass through the bolt. After a little file work (take your time and DO NOT use a power tool) the action smoothed out as nice as my 1994 vintage Marlin. At the range the gun was consistent (3rds almost touching) though I found that the point of impact was about 6" low at 50 yards even with the rear sight elevator maxed out. This isn't an issue for me since I had ordered a peep sight for it anyway but that's something to keep in mind. Overall this rifle is a blast (lol) the short barrel makes it handy and you get 6+1 of 45-70, what could be better?
