I posted this on September 04 of this year:
Hi folks I'm new to Marlins as I don't have any yet. All my guns are Bolt action except the 870 shotgun. I'm really looking hard at the Marlin "Guide Gun" in .45-70 as a bear defense while I'm trying to get my quota of salmon during the year.
Any thoughts on this gun, the various models, etc. Is there a thread or two that already discusses this? HELP!!

and yet I've been teaching MY kids and grandkids on the wood stock Model 81 DL for at least the last 18 years

when my youngest finally had a stable home I gave it to her and acquired the 925R to replace it for MY use.

I would have a Marlin 45-70 tomorrow, if I could sell my .444, and I almost did, but he got a 45-70 with a 18" barrell and a laminated stock, on special, BUGGER !
It's a little "ripper", and brilliant in the "bush", with its short barrell.
I have shot a few different varieties, of 45-70, and loved everyone of them.
Just get one

Best described as a "Mountain Howitzer", by one of my New Zealand mates.
Shoot them all day, and nothing gets away.

Yeah that's my idea short gun with lots of terminal velocity for dangerous situations as Salmon fishing with it slung at the ready, or one of our party standing "bear watch" as they share our favorite fishing spots!
