    Meh. The Magnum Research? Hell yea! The Guide Gun? Nice gun but too easy. You need to work for it harder. You need a quest for a really cool one.

    The big loop is a great idea, but the full length magazine adds weight and not a lot of functionality. 4+1 is plenty in the 45-70. The 6+1 adds forward weight that is not really needed in my opinion. I do think it looks better. You still need a mount like XS System mount.

    I like this model the 1895SBL, other than the longer forward tube it has everything, and is stainless.



    Here, on my Guide Gun, I added the XS Rail. It really needs a big loop lever to be complete.

    $100 cash rebate on all 1895 Marlins if you buy by 7/30/2017 and mail in by 8/30. Not trying to enable you, much.................

    I'm not big on the laminate. But, I prefer the larger loop and agree that the longer tube looks better. Besides..........more bullets!

    Already have one iron in the fire with the .480 Ruger in Purgatory. Once that's done, I can focus on what's next.

    Just planning ahead.

    I've never gotten into the age thing with Marlins. Never really been a Marlin fan other than in terms of the .45-70.

    So, it doesn't really matter to me the collector value or age of said Marlin. I just want a good .45-70 platform.

    This may sound crazy to you but the added weight of carrying six rounds only exists if you actually put six rounds in it. My 1895CB holds 9 in the magazine and in the 15 years or so that I've had it, I don't think that I've ever put more than three rounds in it at a time.

    What is that? Isn't the 336BL only chambered in 30-30?

    Re: Intervention: How bad do I need a Marlin Guide Gun in .45-70?

    Well, I have dies.



    On sale at Midway.

    So I'm screwed. I gotta get the gun to go with the dies.



    Right?

    No doubt. At least one but two or three variants would be ideal.

    Yeah. I think I'll need a Contender Pistol barrel again. I had one once. Sold it like a fool.

    Huh. Where have I heard "you should get a 45-70 barrel for your TC" before? Odd, I seem to remember hearing that.
