Well I guess that's why I always manually drop the hammer. If the gun goes off doing it that way, it's completely my fault.

They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.

Looks like a great gun, I wish the big lever version existed when I bought my 1895G.

I dont hunt, but I love the history of the .45-70 cartridge...and wether i'm at the range, or in the desert with friends, a short barrel .45-70 is a real crowd pleaser!

I love mine, so fun to shoot, and it'll stay in my aresenal because it would be a very useful rifle if i ever needed it. It generally comes along for camping trips and whatnot.

That's one gorgeous rifle, I'd love to get one for hunting moose. Always wondered how accurate those Marlin lever guns are, so I'm really looking forward to the range report.

I'm not a very good shot, but at 100 yards with Hornady Leverevolution, 325gr balistic tip hollow points, I was able to keep 2" groups

Sorry to hijack from the original poster!

I was split between blued or stainless....i asked for them to give me the blued .45-70 and they said "that one is a .450 marlin"


That made my decision right there.
