    I can't wait to get one of these Marlin 1895SBL .45-70 carbines. XS Ghost Ring rear peep site, 6 round tube magazine, large loop lever for gloved hands, a nice recoil pad and stainless steel. I really like the picatinny rail for what ever you want in the way of a site. I've already ordered the dies.

    Initially, I didn't like large loops. After shooting the heck out of my lever actions, I wish they were roomier (is that a word?)

    My friend has a guide gun sort of like that. I shot some of the Garret loads out of it and it kicks like a mule.

    Oh yeah, a Garret 510 gr load out of a 7 1/2 lb gun is gonna make your eyes water for sure! But for most hunting the 300 gr loads aren't bad at all.

    George,

    Where are you buying yours? I have been shopping for the same gun for a while now at the Houston gun shows and haven't seen one yet.

    Thanks!

    Pete,
    My FFL has one on order with Jerry's Dist. They say it should be anytime now as more make it into the pipeline. I hate waiting for a new gun and Elk season here in New Mexico is just around the corner.

    Cheers,

    Gungle George
