I dont see any lever actions!! but nice collection.

March 29, 2009, 06:13 PM
Lever Gun? Good call I'll have to find a 336. Thanks for the comments guys. I am just a 27 year old E5 in the military so to be honest I am very proud of my berettas and benellis It took me a long time to save enough to get some of them.

All the Best

http://www.marlinfirearms.com/firearms/bigbore/1895SBL.asp im lovin marlins new Model 1895SBL lever action..iv got the classic 1895. except I dont put scopes on lever guns lol. Too bad you didnt have flash on the camera then we could of had an ever better look but we got the just of er:D

Hmm that has the ported barrel, with some buffalo bore of garrett hammerheads that would be great close up for the Kodiak bears here. Would love to get one. I am trying to sell my 454 so perhaps when I do I'll get that. Great idea man.

March 29, 2009, 06:36 PM
Not that the .416 won't do the trick

March 29, 2009, 06:57 PM
Cant go wrong even another line of marlin big bores would work. I love the 18 1/2'' barrel's so easy to move in the bush/truck etc! Iv got a 22'' barrel on my 45-70 either way iv taken black bears out at 250 yards. open sights. and the range of ammuntion from 325 grains hornady flex tips (great for long distance) to 405 grains remington govt loads (great for in the brush) and if you want more bang for ur buck reload them to 500 grains. great gun very versatile.

:cool:Nice collection:cool:

you ought to check out Garrett ammunition they make a 530 grain 45-70 monolithic solid. I read an article where they went Cape Buff hunting and shot one on a hind quartering shot, it passed all the way thru and killed a buff caow on the other side. They have used the same ammo to take elephants as well. Now that is some power from a good old american cartridge.

If anyone wants close ups of any of these let me know.

March 30, 2009, 03:32 PM
great start!:)

and thank you,for your service.


March 30, 2009, 04:48 PM
wow eh! I havnt herd of factory ammo going past 405 grains for the 45-70 im very intrested in this now. Ill have to check in to it (guranteed none of my firearm shops have it unfortnaly) I live in b.c. canada and my neck of the woods we have 5 hunting/firearm shops but all of them are pretty traditional and dont carry a big variety of ammuntion. Last I checkd they only had the hornady and the remington but Im going to take a good look this weekend! thanks for the info on that.

March 30, 2009, 06:23 PM
Oh yeah our exchange carries the Buffalo Bore but I have to order the Garretts If I remember they are spitting that 530 grainer at 1880 fps. Not quite in the safari big bore class but enough to lay out any bear in the world. I would feel comfortable carrying them. Make the old 45-70 into a hell of a cartridge. Do you still have the factory sights on yours?

March 30, 2009, 06:46 PM
On my 1895 (classic orginal) I have the factory sights yes, but the oval that covers the ramp at the end I took that off, past 100 yards it tends to cover alot of area of what your shooting at. (I dont know what its exactly called but hopefully you get the idea)

March 30, 2009, 07:11 PM
I think it is called a "sight hood" and I think it is for keeping glare down or making a "sight picture"...:o But I may be wrong on both.

March 30, 2009, 07:57 PM
that sounds like a good name for it lol I have no idea what to call it, all I know is past 100 yards it takes up to much of my target lol

March 31, 2009, 07:46 PM
Going to pick up my 1895G and a couple of boxes of buffalo bore 420 grain for the grand total of $500

March 31, 2009, 10:16 PM
Ended up with the stainless I'll post some pictures later. Guy hooked me up with a hundred dollars worth of 430 grain buffalo bore

March 31, 2009, 10:23 PM
MK, Man you don't mess around when you decide you need a new gun, do ya?
Ya' need a high power air rifle too...

Yeah but my wife cut me off till my birthday in Nov. But you know this is the only hobby I have so I get my Sea Pay (extra money we get for being stationed on a ship) every month and it goes in to s separate "gun fund". I think for my birthday I am gonna ask for a sako featherlite in 6.5x55.
