    ... hello guys, i'm the latest newb' here is suppose, lol, but hello everyone ... i have also just purchased a New Marlin(REP stamped)1895SBL 45/70 and i must say this is a wonderful looking rifle, my step father has had a "family kept" lever action from my grasp for most of my life now (lol) so i decided to buy one of my own and 1-up him, lol ...

    ... i've shot 1 box of 20 through the gun, and it has no issues, and the only complaint i have is the feed/door area has a small edge to it, but i fixed that before i shot it with my dremel and some sanding rolls, then polished the area with a cross-buff, so it's nice and smooth now ... ;)

    ... i have a cheap Barska scope on it, as i didn't have much money after the purchase to get a really nice scope for it, but maybe later ... :(

    ... my next box of ammo will be the "Buffalo-Bore" brand, as we are anxious to shoot those ... :D

    Welcome to the Marlin Forum.
    Very nice rifle. Should give you many years of pleasure.
    My favorite is the Stainless with the Salt & Pepper stock. Both beautiful and practical.

    I recently obtained a 1961 336RC, a good gun but would prefer a bolt action.

    Welcome aboard Mate !
    I have help run in A 45-70, very similar to yours, but with a 26" barrel, and it's "as sweet as", shoot it all day, with 405gr FTX handloads
    Maybe it was a 24" Barrel.
