    Hey all. Chris from Maine here. I don't own a marlin lever gun yet but I'm looking into the 45-70 guide gun with the rail and xs peep. I just don't like the stainless. I'm thinking it'll make a good bear rifle.

    Welcome Chris! 45-70 would certainly be appropriate for bear (and moose too!).

    Welcome Chris. Glad to have you with us. And yes, the 45-70 is an excellent choice for bear.

    I currently use my Remington 7600 Carbine 30-06 on bear and deer which is plenty, but my wife doesn't know that so its a good excuse for another rifle. :) I'm sure all you guys with wives who shoot already know but if the wifey wants a new gun we have plenty of money, and theres always room for one more. When I want a new gun she's like you already have 16 and we really can't afford it lol. So any chance I get to buy one I'll take it.

    What's do you think of it? I love carbines so the shorter the better. I may just get it in stainless and have it blacked.
