    New Marlin...now with pics

    Well after doing the poll,on whether I should get a 30-30 or a 45/70, I came home with a blued marlin Guide Gun.:D This is going to make a great brush gun for boar and whitetail.

    I got an awsome deal, $429 NIB.

    :D you will enjoy that rifle! :D but, if you are going to use any hot loads at all, go back to the gun store and get a limbsaver #10102 recoil pad. throw away that hard marlin pad, and make the rifle comfortable to shoot! the 10102 is a direct screw on replacement pad, so there is not a bunch of fitting or grinding required. r&r two screws, and you are done.

    That's a great looking rifle. It's definitely all business with a nice companion.
    Have fun.

    Nice GG. What an awesome price! Where did you find that deal? Saw a GG at the range today here in Eastern, NC - they were asking $599! I purchased my GG when they first came out about 8-9 years ago for around $410.

    Great buy.

    I picked up a used 1895GS this week for $420/OTD. It's my 4th Guide Gun and the one I plan on holding on to.

    Nice rifle! My favorite firearm (that I own anyhow) is a Marlin as well, an 1894 Cowboy. I'm sure it will treat you right. Also, it sounds like you got a steal. I saw a stainless guide gun just the other day for $630 new.

    Sportsman's Warehouse had a couple today that I looked at. The price on the 45-70 was $529, and they had one in 450Marlin for $459. Doesn't sound like the 450M is selling that well and they are trying to move it out.

    I always wanted a Marlin 45-70 but never had a use for one and for Christmas bought an 1894C for less then $350 out the door.

    The 357 magnum in hot loads are so easy to shoot and 1400 fps in 158 gr JHP or 1100 fps in 158 gr LSWC-HP are excellent deer round and PP rounds in the 'hood. Granted it will not take a griz down, but we do not have those Missouri. However if I was to buy a motor home I would have a 45-70 Marlin for sure to go with my DW 44 magnum.

    The 38 spl +P rounds are quieter then a silenced 22 automatic. It might make an excellent stray dog and cat getter where I live and I will be looking into that for sure.

    Hey Rob96! I noticed you wrapped your loop with paracord aslo! I did the exact same thing last year in order to help with the bar digging into the back of my hand when practicing with my 39a. I hate shooting with gloves and it was the best modification I ever made lol and it only cost me less than a dollar in cord.

    I got the idea looking at pictures over at the Marlin owners group. I like how the lever feels with it.
