... 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.

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.
