    Hi all,

    After considerable, unencumbered, internet research ... I've just brought a new ... still in the box ... 1895GBL home. I was new in the box at the store. I gave it a real good look over (best I could anyway). So far I am very pleased with this rifle. It took a while for me to make my mind up ... what with all the problems Remington/Marlin has been having - and there is Henry.

    I've read where R/M has resolved these issues? any ways ... I'm liking what I've seen so far. The action is smooth ... trigger is ok ... feels good. So, I like it. Haven't shot it yet. At these prices ... I'll be rolling my own ammo. Still I've got a box of Hornady 325gr and a box of Remington 405gr. Core-Lock.

    My preference is going to be the lighter of the two. We'll see what we will see.

    Figured this would be a good place to have in the old tool-box?

    So ... howdy!

    Howdy, New2Marlins, and welcome to the camp. C'mon over here by the fire and have a set-down on this here stump. Coffee is in the pot; help yourself. I did happen to notice a most serious lack of pictorial evidence of this Marlin you claim to own. We lust for Marlin porn here.

    Thanks!

    Pictures? ... I can do that. Once I get it back together. Any time I get a new firearm ... I just have to take it apart. This thing has a lot of screws! One of those 'magnetic bowl thingies' are going to be in my cleaning kit.

    Lot of black muck ... assembly grease?

    When I get a new firearm, I like to get to know it, before I shoot it.

    Gives me an idea of what tools I'll need to go with it and I am looking a bullets, powder and loads. I'll be sticking to store bought for the short term. And ... of course ... better iron sights. Rear, at least. :D
