45-70 CB Marlin 1895

    That's a beaut, I'd love to have one like it.  I'm torn between 38-55, .444, and 45-70 though.  Already have a 32-40 so maybe I need the full set?  lol

    After ordering I was thinking, what did I just do. 26 inch heavy gun. It is nothing what I expected. The entire gun appears thinning down. I can hold it out with one hand. About seven lbs. It has a very good feel to it. I passed on a 38-55 at Epps. Just didn't seem to have much one could do with it, even reloading. Ammo was also crazy expensive. I do have a older 444 in mint condition.

    Compared to the 32-40 the 38-55 has tons of loading options.  Hell, you can even find brass smile.png     Any interest in trading the .444 for a custom 6.5x55 built on a mauser 98 action?   It's not a $500 mauser, it's an $800 gun.

    a future range day perhaps?

    I have had many want the 444 that I have, but its staying. According to ballistics the 38-55 did not make sense when reloading for a 44, it was tempting but I passed.
