or, just talk me into buying it.

$499.99 sitting there at the store, just asking to be bought.
Marlin 1895GS 45-70 govt




I love lever action. I love stainless. I really want a 45-70

Why should I not get this? I mean, besides the money of course.


UPDATE I bought it but got delayed by NICS and so I have to wait til tommorow to pick it up.

UPDATE** x2



And the big boom duo with my Super Blackhawk 44 mag.


UPDATE x3

Just shot it at the NRA indoor range. 45-70 inside is fun!

Shoots like a dream. I am grinning like I just got laid.

UPDATE x4 Optic(just what I had lying around.)

'Cause your shoulder will get knocked back into last week?

But levers are cool. I have a number of them including an original Winny 1886 in .45-70-

What store?

I'd hit it.
Link Posted: 9/28/2005 9:00:59 AM EDT
I have a non stainless model myself so I would be biased if I gave any opinions!

It has a Scout Scope mount with an EER Leupold scope and AO Express sights on it.

Unfortunantly its Dicks. I hate giving them money. But its the only store that has one in stock. And is such a pretty gun I need to take it from that vile store.

I have a marlin 39A from 1957 that my grandfather purchased. My father and I are planning on purchasing a 45/70 Lever Action.
I plan to use it to go hunting and he wants it for Buffallo Shoots w/ Cowboy Action Shooting. So If that can be construed as a reason to buy it use it as such

44 mag or 357mag is a whole lot cheaper to feed plus chicks dig anything with the word Magnum in it.

go for it, i'de love to have one.

I already have a 44 mag.

Why shoot 240 grain bullets when you can shoot 400 grain ones.

I think the "vintage look" is better

Old West guns look better with traditional blued and oil stained wood finish

Because it doesn't take hi-caps.

If it does not go down with 5 rounds of 45-70, then lay your gun down and ask the good Lord to take ya.
Link Posted: 9/28/2005 9:15:30 AM EDT
Hold out for a .444 or .450 with ports


And skip the stainless for chissakes, it's a lever gun
Link Posted: 9/28/2005 9:17:39 AM EDT
I had one, recoil nearly put my shoulder out while shooting prone
It was a nice gun though, but I had to sell it. Sometimes I regret it though

I find myself fondling my guns more than shooting anyway. Only shoot once or twice a month.

Everyone should have at least one good $1 a shot firearm.

Get it.

I have the .450 and will probably get rid of it for a 45-70 which is more versatile for reloading than the .450.

Reason enough is the Garrett 540gr hardcast Hammerhead load.

540-GR SUPER-HARD-CAST GAS-CHECKED HAMMERHEAD AT 1550-FPS

You can't buy that rifle. Indians Native Americans hate them, it was a cowboy "assault rifle".

Me likey!
Link Posted: 9/28/2005 9:41:52 AM EDT
Here is more than enough reason to get the rifle:

420gr Cast @ 1850 FPS; Energy = 3200 ft/lbs

This is the one to get. No safety. No recoil pad. Ballard rifling. Very, very nice.

Good one

There is this newfangled technology that automatically loads the next round after you pull the trigger...

My dad just bought the same rifle.

You guys are jerks. Here I am looking for support and you are going to make me spend money. I am now sitting here at work, itching to buy it, but I don't get off until 5:30.

Becuase rapid fire is needed when delivering 3200 ft/lbs of energy?


I own tons of autos. Its time for a good tank gun.

it's a model 1895 Marlin

I don't like SS rifles, but you do so I say get it. I have no need for something in that size caliber, but I sure would love to have that same rifle but with a blued finish. Go buy it now!!!
Link Posted: 9/28/2005 10:04:28 AM EDT
forgiveness for it being Dick's depends on which one, if it's the Fair Lakes dicks, that is an evil evil place and should be burned to the ground
Link Posted: 9/28/2005 10:05:26 AM EDT
If you don't want to buy from Dick's, and you would prefer a blued finish you can always buy it from WalMart for $416 and use the savings towards 20rds from Garrett.

This has no need. Its pure want. Nothing I hunt can't be taken with my shotguun or 303 or 30-06.

Pure want, which is why there is a debate.
