    Own 3 1895s already in 45-70( although one is for sale here to make room for the new Marlin)
    I paid $799 at Sportsman’s Outdoors Warehouse with free shipping.
    Well, $865 with tax

    It’s at my FFL now. Won’t be able to pick it up until maybe tomorrow or most likely, Thursday

    Nice look to that gun. I love the big loop option on lever action guns.

    Will be picking up gun in a couple of hours.
    Depending on how heavy the rain is I will be shooting it 30 minutes after I fill out the 4473.
    I have a box of 170 grain ammo my dad bought at K-mart right after he bought the Marlin I shoot now. Should I use a round of it to christen the gun? ;)

    Cool rifle man. My buddy has one. He digs it a lot. He always brings up Wind River when he starts talking about that gun. I think that movie had an impact on him. Lol

    It’s here! 19DFD19E-10A5-4D59-A533-4E65E2BB028D.jpeg Did not take it out and shoot it yet. It is raining so hard the rounds would just fall to the ground before hitting a target anyway:roflsmile:( at least according to someone)
    Gun feels solid and points easily. I don’t think I will have a tough time adjusting to a 16.25” barrel.

    Now to decide on optics....

    What are you leaning towards for optics?

    A scout scope would be fitting but it's pretty hard to beat a nice red dot for pure speed shooting.

    The purists are already upset so you don't have to worry about that.

    That is sharp.

    Trigger feels about like my older Marlin. No creep and crisp. Probably at 4-4.5 lbs but I honestly don’t feel like opening the package my trigger weight gauge and finding out. B56C55F5-214C-4716-AD5C-2D5C9F301C57.jpeg

    A red dot would be great for the fast multiple target acquisition but I do want to be able to reach out and hit stuff as well. I am currently looking for something in the 1-4/2-6x that is compact enough to be able to put NV or thermal in front of it.
    Any suggestions?
