    Hello Everyone,
    1st time lever action owner looking to further my education and enjoyment with my 1895 GBL 45-70GOV'T. I love this rifle!!!
    I've wanted a marlin for about 4 years. About a 1 1/2 years ago I reloaded 20rds for a friend of mine's 1895 SBL 45-70 (I handload a lot, especially for my .458 SOCOM), and we were out in Indiana shooting (this was around June of this year), I was sold. A few weeks later, my own Marlin was in my hands. Have a look at my beauty!!! 20171214_002949.jpg

    Howdy, bluMar, and welcome to the camp from northeast Indiana. Climb down, tether your buggy horse and c'mon over here by the fire and have a set-down on this block of ash. Coffee is in the pot. Help yourself. You empty it; you re-fill it. By posting Marlin porn on your introductory entry, you have managed to keep your name off of the latrine duty roster for 60 days.
