Marlin 1895 Guide Gun with the 18.5 inch barrel,
^^^ Nice pic Now, just re-do the sofa in Realtree and you are set for the man-cave!
I've heard lots of endorsements for the 18 1/2" barrel. I suppose it will depend on what I can find at the best price, at least to some extent. The laminate stock looks good. I'm torn on Black Walnut versus laminate, but weather resistance is a factor,too.

Lots of Cast Iron to Cook With...
and a few defensive firearms, too!
