    You gonna put a scope on that? :eek: JUST KIDDING! Very nice.

    I have yet to handle one of the older models with the chubby forend. How do they compare to the later models with the thinner forend?

    I had a JC Higgins with the fat forearm and loved it. I like the look of it more, too.

    I've only shot it at the range. I preferred the Winchester 94 carbine for hunting which I've had longer. I like it but it's not my favorite, but I could get used to it easily. If I sat in a blind more I would probably prefer it. I like my 1950's fat forearm Marlin 39A the best though of the 39A's.

    I've wanted one of these for years and finally went out and bought one. This is my favorite Winchester- an 1873 Sporting Rifle in 44WCF with a 20" octagon barrel.

    Tonight was a good night to do a tear down clean and lube on this 336 dirty thirty! She also got a little rounding of some hard edges to smooth things out. All gtg now.

    This one was on another forum. I had the saddle ring carbine version at one time but let it go and didn't have an 1895 Winchester after that so I pulled the trigger on this rifle version.
    https://www.24hourcampfire.com/ubbt...5/Search/true/re-winchester-1895#Post13145620

    I'm not a huge collector but I basically have most of the useful and cool Winchesters, a few Marlins, and two Savages. With this 1895 win I have about all the bases covered. I would love to find one in 30-06 though.

    This thread was linked in another post, so I'll bump it back to the top. :)

    I have the Henry Big Boy Steel in .357/.38. I got this cartridge because I have a pile of .357 cartridges and have my Dillon press set up to reload that round. I got it for something fun to shoot, not for hunting or target.

    Quality and function is great, and it shoots just fine. I once had a Winchester '94 Carbine in .30-30 for Pennsylvania deer, but sold it decades ago. The Henry seems every bit as good as I remember the Winchester; maybe a bit tighter. The Winchester did have that beautiful old blueing, though, and a color case hardened receiver.

    I saw a gun a few days ago.
    A gorgeous new Winchester (Miroku) in 44-40. Beautiful curly maple looking stock. Deep bluing. Long and lean. And my favorite action, 1873.

    But getting it would have meant having to buy a matching pistol and then reloading dies and then everything that goes with that...
    Sigh... :(

    Anyine with a current/recent made Marlin 1895 SBL who can comment on fit/finish and accuracy?
    Looking at swapping out my 12ga for a 45-70 as my work gun (read: ultimate dependability as I work along most often out in no mans land!).

    Thanks!

    This is my new one here. Fit finish is great but I wouldn't but one sight unseen still. I bought it for work in a remote camp in Alaska. Accuracy is on par with my older JM stamped 1895G.

    Last night I swapped a scope from my Marlin 375s from a scout mount 2x Leupold to a fixed base/ring holding a Burris 4x compact. Until my Leupold 2x7 comes back from Lewiston for a reticule change.

    I was wanting to install the scout mount on my “extra” 1894 357.... But nope it dose t fit. Its just for a 336 action. :(. So it keeps its peeps and stays as is for now.

    Then that 4x Burris is going on my 35 Legend Ruger American (bolt) when it comes in.

    My 1960 Marlin 336 SC .32 Spl. and some of the game taken with it.
    Just a 4X scope on it and it shoots like a laser.

    1977 Marlin 336. I bought this gun which was in very good shape except for some scratches on the stock. I removed both of the stocks, stripped the original finish off of them and applied 7 coats of hand rubbed gunstock oil into it. I removed the old scope and hideous see through mounts. I also removed the crappily smeared red paint that covered the front sight and I then added a precise dot of white paint which was overlaid with blaze orange to make a nice bead. She looks like brand new now.

    I always wanted a Marlin and I'm glad I snagged this one when I did. I didn't care for the more modern versions with beech stocks and pressed checkering. Not to mention the Remlin disaster which soon followed.

    Replaced the XS sights on the marlin SBL with a Skinner Sights scope mount. When i first got the rifle in 2013 i was wary of the exposed ghost ring on the rear, it looked fragile to me and i was worried i would smack it on nature and bend it. So i had the back of the XS rail shortened and a winged DRC rear sight installed. It worked ok but never really liked the look of it. So when i saw skinner had this setup i thought id give it a shot. Going to order a skinner front sight now as the XS seems a little low for this rear site and i dont want to elevate it any higher. Ill eventually put a red dot on it, and maybe do the mlocok front hand guard and ranger point precision black lever if im feeling froggy.

    A couple other mods on the rifle are a artickote (cerakote), RPP load gate and ported barrel.

    My Uncle has the same gun, in the same chambering. Was my great-grandfather's. Purchased in 1904, he took at least one tiger with it, as well as assorted other game. Obviously shooting tigers isn't really... kosher in this day and age, but back then he was the go-to guy for his region of India whenever there was a man-eater threatening the local villages. I'll have to see if I can find the photos. Dude was a true early 20th century sportsman. Opened the first Polo club in South America as well. (He was a brit, and worked for the Standard Oil Company, so they traveled a lot, and lived all over.)


    I've just got the two: A marlin 39A and a Winchester 94 in .44mag. Both '70s era.

    I'd be curious how well the Cerakote holds up. I have thought about it on my 336. I lost some bluing when mine rode too close to a black rifle for a rough ride through a corn field... long story.
    Is that the titanium color finish?

    Have you tried touching it up with some cold blue? Birch Wood Casey Super blue, rubbing alcohol, 0000 steel wool, a heat gun, gun oil and 20 minutes of your time might make that wear spot look like new again.

    I haven't. I have a friend that has some experience with such things and has offered to help. That rifle sits in a locked cabinet while my new (in December) Henry is poised for any need that might arise.

    So with the cerakote, in this case they call it arctickote which is supposed to hold up better in extreme temps (I had it done when i was in alaska), It seems to take extremely minor surface scratches very easily, but I have had no issues with deep scratches or anything getting past the coating. No rust at all. With the surface scratches, often they can be wiped off with little or no remnant left, its hard to explain.

    You can find out more about the coating here http://arcticgunworks.com/main_pages/cera_kote.htm

    If you notice in the last picture, the blast marks from the ports, those do NOT rub off. They dont bother me but it was surprising to me.

    Here’s another 1894 SRC .30WCF off a S. Texas Ranch. And I am sure it saw action on both sides of the Rio Bravo.

    At some point the family who had it, had it refurbished a bit. After a clean up it still shoots pretty good. It has had a LOT of saddle time. Mfg in 1912.

    I had a fella call me last fall to sight in his rifle for him, when he showed up it was an original 1895 carbine in 30 US govt. It was the first one of them I had ever shot, I was thoroughly surprised at how accurate it was, it was truly a neat rifle. Do the modern ones shoot well or have you tested them out.

    I havent had time to really developed a load for mine yet but just fooling around I was able to get a load that will put 5 rounds into slightly over 1.75MOA at 100 yards out of my shooter .30-40SRC. I'd say the .30-06 is just as accurate but again I havent been able to fine tune a load for it.

    I also still havent upgraded the sights yet and I think that will help. The barrels are free floated except for a roughly 1" glass pad around where the barrel band goes. I think that could also be played with to tighten up groups if one had the time and inclination.

    Overall, I've found them to be very accurate out of the box for being "unaccurate" leverguns.
