Say hello to the Jurassic Park Dino Gun!
The 1895SBL chambered in the awesome .45-70 Govt has a stainless steel barrel and receiver, and a laminate wood stock for ultimate durability against the elements. The barrel has Ballard style rifling to handle all types of bullets—cast or jacketed. The full-length magazine tube holds 6 rounds, and an enlarged lever loop allows shooter to cycle the action with gloved hands. The Marlin 1895SBL features side ejection, which simplifies scope mounting, and the gun comes with the versatile Lever Rail that allows mounting a standard riflescope on top the receiver, or a scout-style scope mounted farther out on the barrel. For quick, close-range shooting the 1895SBL comes with an excellent XS ghost ring, rear aperture sight mounted to the rail, and a front post with white line up the center. A Pachmayr® Decelerator® recoil pad helps absorbs recoil from heavy .45-70 rounds, allowing the shooter to stay on target for fast follow up shots. A receiver-mounted crossbolt safety effectively blocks the hammer from hitting the firing pin when engaged, translating to ultimate firearms safety.
Due to the Ruger takeover of Marlin there are very long order times, please contact us for more information!
