Dang I am still on a high from this...... a buddy told me about a 1895G in 45-70 that was at another SportingGoodsStore in town marked at $399.00 on consignment. Well I ran over there and they still had it, I well was really hoping that it wasn't consigned.....

The tag said pre-owned and it was at $399.00 and looked like it just came out of the box. I don't think it had been hardly shot neither.....

Well I hung onto it with a vice grip cuz aint no one gettin this away from me.... so I ask the sales guy.. when did this come in, he said, yesterday the guy traded it for a TC Contender.

Well I put $50.00 down on her....... It looks identical to this one below and the serial number starts with 99xxxxxx

You are slowly (Well, not real slow) and surely cornering the market on lever guns. I better get busy and get my share before you get 'em all!

JB....

You're terminal...with this malady, don't try to fight it, just enjoy!

Congrats on the 45-70. It's truly a do-anything round. Been around it since I was an early teen...amazingly, my first CF was an old trapdoor Springfield!

JB...nice Marlin...I love those with the straight grip. I have been wanting to order a .44Mag or the Guide Gun in .45-70, but they are so spendy, even wholesale. I love the stainless Marlins with the straight grip. I may have to break down and get one in. They are PURRty! We're going to Montana in about 3 weeks!

When I was a kid I loved lever guns, they were my favorites, but as I got older my arms got longer and it became hard to find a levergun that would fit and so I kind of divorced myself from them.

Lately I have been hankering to get into one and just lookin at that 45-70 similar to yours has got me going.
