Pic of my new suppressed 1895 SBL (45/70)

I have 3 loads so far one is a 325 grain hornady flex tip at 2000 FPS The next is a 500 grain hornady interlock bullet at 1020 FPs and the last is the same bullet at 750 FPS.



sorry for bad picture quality, taken from my camera

Your picture is hosted on Marlin Owners. Only those with a login there can see it.

Here it is. Hope you don't mind me reposting it.

thanks. I am not real tech savvy and I could see the picture so I assumed every one else could too.

but yeah thats the picture

you cant see it but the SBL has peep sights but the suppressor blocks a portion of the field of view.

my brother in law has the exact same setup minus the suppressor. if the bullet sleeve wasn't on the wrong side for a leftie I would be hauling ass to his place to find out why I wasn't informed of the supressor project.

This is in serious need of a video, the pic has my mind racing!

Thanks for sharing, can we have some more info on the can? I have an 1895SBL, and this right up my alley.

I consider my sound suppressor purchase one of the best firearm related purchases that I have made... I wish I had done it sooner
