Hickok45 Breaks Out His JM Marlin 1895 .45-70 Lever-Action Rifle

marlin 1895 .45/70 lever action rifle

What constitutes a classic lever-action rifle?

How about a Marlin made well over a decade ago?

Watch Hickok45 do some shooting with a JM Marlin 1895 .45-70.

Hickok45 had been looking for a Marlin 1895 rifle from before the “Remlin” problems that came after Remington bought Marlin. He found what he was looking for at the Tulsa Gun Show.

This particular rifle is a Cowboy model, with the serial number prefix “JM.” These rifles are certainly sought after by fans of the mighty .45-70 cartridge.

You just never know what treasure you’ll bring home from a gun show!
