Default Itch effectively scratched!

Traded straight across...

Gave up a Century Arms AK w/2 mags for this Marlin 1894 GBL in 45-70!

I've been yearning for a lever gun for years and being an AR guy... Really did not enjoy the "clunky" nature of the AK platform.

Stock internet pick... I'll post real picks shortly.

Nice gun, but with my eyes, it would require a low power scope to be able hit a bull's butt with a bass fiddle.

The peep sights similar to the brass peep sights that come on Henry rifles are fragile. The dovetail sights that are on the gun are quick handling and accurate. A friend of mine has a rifle just like yours. He has been wanting to put a scope on it since day one. He is still using the dovetail sights. That guns keeps putting meat in the freezer.
Shoot the gun for a while before you start tinkering. You will enjoy the rifle.

I put a Skinner peep on one of my Marlins and really like it. They make some nice looking stuff.

If you reload there is special loading data specific to the Marlin. Do not use loading data for the Ruger.

That's a pretty 1895. My first centerfire rifle was an 1895 and I've had several of them over the years. It is a very competent firearm, able to handle just about anything at normal hunting distances.

I went through a brief period of making hot loads, but most of the time I have duplicated the 405 grain factory load and found that it is very good.

I think you'll have a lot of fun with your new 1895.

I put a peep I found on eBay for about $35. Works very well
