Absolutely gorgeous!

I've finally figured out and filed my taxes, and a portion of my return will be promptly spent on a Guide Gun.

I've been shopping around, and it seems I'd have to special order one from dicks or bass pro, I haven't seen any in stock lately (dicks used to have em on the shelf).

Chances are good that I'll order one online and have it shipped to a local FFL.

i have a model 1895 guide gun in 450 marlin, i like it a lot,small,fairly light ,very quick and packs a pretty mean punch. mine does not have the ported barrel(they stopped porting a while ago) but the recoil is tolerable.

Well, finally found a pair of them locally, one in blued and one in stainless, both at great prices.

After much much much deliberation, I decided To go with the blued rifle, and will be picking it up tomorrow, I hope.

Why do I feel like a fool for purchasing this damn thing hahaha. I'm gonna love it!

I believe that every man should own a .45/70 even if only for a little while. It's a historic round, a serious caliber and it's just good fun to shoot. Congratulations.
