It sure looked like it. I think I'm going to go for it in .45-70 but I think I'm going to get one in .45 LC as well. Just a matter of which one to get first.

I have both an 1895 in .45-70 and an 1894 in .44 Rem Mag. With full loads the .45-70 bumps a little. But then so does the .44 with full loads. I've found that the accuracy of the .44 isn't real great. From what I've been told Marlin didn't use the best rate of twist in this model. If memory serves me right I believe it has a 20 inch twist. Whatever. Both are nice rifles and are fun to shoot.

Here's a still shot captured from a video of my friend's girlfriend who insisted on shooting my 1895.
(Yeah,I know she isn't wearing any eye protection. She didn't want to.)

No. But there is a funny after story. To this. Later at the root beer stand I saw her pulling her blouse back a little and looking at her shoulder. She said she thought it looked a little red. I pointed and told her it looked to me like she was a bit swollen. She says I'm the only one that makes her blush.

Yea, I have both the '95 and '94 . With full house loads I've shot out 2 scopes on the '95. It's a beast. The '94 is sweet to shoot. Depends what your doing methinks.
BTW All Marlin levers side eject..
I'd like to find a '94 in .41 mag, pretty scarce tho...
