    I found a rifle today at my friendly neighborhood gun shop that caught my eye. I was hoping someone could tell me about it.

    It's a Marlin .45-70 lever action. I don't know exactly, but I'd guess the barrel length was between 20"-22". It had a full length octagon barrel, and a full length tube magazine. The serial number started with "LTD." I couldn't find a date on it. It had a pistol grip, checkered stock, not straight, plain stock like the cowboy versions Marlin sells currently.

    Price on this rifle was $475, which sounds reasonable to me even if it's not rare or special in any way. I haven't found a matching rifle on the auction sites to compare against, but if anyone has info, much appreciated.

    Its some form or fashion of a limited edition. Get over to the Marlin site, drop them a email, and they could fill ya in I'm sure.

    The octagon barreled and full length magazine tube sounds like a CB version. Just the regular off the shelf ones usually go for well over $500. However, all the .45-70 CBs I've seen have (I think) a 26" oct. barrel & full length 'tube. The one on mine looks about a yard long, but I'd swear its a 26". If ya want a (perhaps unusual) .45-70, I'd sure grab it.

    I have a 1895CB. I can't remember the exact barrel length, but the full length tube holds about 9 cartridges. I paid just a little over $500 new. The dealer I got it from didn't mark it up over cost hardly at all. I think it was $550 after tax and stuff. That sounds like a good price if it ain't mess up.
