    Yep,,,,Thats the same one I have. GREAT little gun! I just shoot factory loads. It seems like its more than enough. I put a Nikon Pro-Staff 3X9X50 on top of it because of my eyesight.


    I had a 336 30-30 and sold it like a dum ass.
    I killed my first three hogs with it.....


    Hey Z,,,,Have you been to MarlinOwners.com yet? They have a TON of Marlin info on that site.

    yea I been bouncing around over there. Common problem I have noticed on larger forms is the complete unorganization of reloading information. Luckily I have a friend from another gun forum sending me a chunk of different profile of lead bullets to try out. I plan on documenting it all, and putting togather a bit of a newbie reloading guide from it.

    I reload 3 other calibers already, so adding a 4th isnt a big deal, just need a new set of dies and a case trim gauge for it.

    That gun has some beautiful wood on the stock and forearm. I hope it performs as good as it looks! Love the .45-70.

    I have a Quigley Pedersoli Sharps replica that shoots the .45-120 so I am a little biased over the old Buffalo gun calibers, even though the .45-110 was the largest production gun Sharps actually made back in the buffalo days.

    Once you buy one,,,,you will buy another.
    The older Marlins are better than the new ones. I got lucky when I bought my new one,,,,,,It worked.

    Already eyeing either a 38/357, or a 30-30 since I see them both on the used market a lot.

    Got rained out this weekend, was going to go test fire it. Ive been checking the chambering and ejection here at home, goes pretty smoothly. So we shall see how it goes when it dries out a bit. I've herd a lot of the horror stories of newer production Remlins', so far I think I got lucky. Action is decently smooth, locks up tight, feeds smoothly. Chamber could use a little polishing, it puts some decent sized scratches in the brass is all.

    Ive been looking at those GBLs for a while now. I think I will have to get one now. I have an old Winchester 94 in 30-30 that I like. A good place to get reload information is a site called the reload bench. The Reload Bulletin Board I just got into reloading and have been lurking there for awhile trying to glean some information. Seems to be a fairly civil forum like this one too.

    if you can handle the recoil and shoot it accurately it is PLENTY of gun. for me in FL where shots are sometimes at your feet, if you can see them, a scope is at times useless at those close ranges imo, and are better off with a good quality open sight like millet white and orange outline/fiber optic/or reflex. levers are intended as a fast handeling brush/saddle gun and putting a big/any scope on them (to me) is like putting a luggage rack on a sports car. at those close ranges shotgun slugs work great also. the 35 rem lever and winchester 94xtr in 375 cal both have good stopping power and bullet wt for close work to 100 yds easy without much recoil. even at 55 with eyeglasses I rarely wear I can see/hit fine to 50+ yds with a good after market open sight. my 2 cents.
