Marlin GUIDE 45-70 SS 18.5 WAL
by Merlin Y Date Added: Friday 18 December, 2009
Excellent rifle for the money, and as always a great deal from Bud's. Purchased a bit over a year ago and brought with me on my move to the Alaskan bush. Compact enough to not be a bother on longer outings when used for security from large predators and powerful enough to hunt moose easily. Be a bit wary of using hot ammo as it will kick mercilessly. Buffalo Bore 430 grain ammo is what I've used, as it is made specifically for modern lever guns, but it does provide a lot of mental comfort when carrying for defense; a limbsaver pad is highly recommended. When using Hornady leverevolution ammo, recoil is milder than a 12 gauge. Add a sling and you're good to go.
