Since the modern Marlin 1895 is based on the Model 336, it's quality hasn't been in question for the over 50 years it's been in production, until Remington took over the Marlin production - denoted by the lack of the "JM" Marlin proofmark on Remlins.


Likewise, the .45-70 has been the Gold Standard in big bore leverguns since 1873 (YOU count the years), and with proper loads is good enough for anything on this continent and most of Africa.
