Default Non-tactical Marlin 1895 M-LOK Rail.

I purchased a Marlin 1895 SBL a wile back with the intention of big game hunting with it. I also had intended to video the experiences first person for whoever cares and myself when I get to old to still do it. I got one of the really good ďRemlinsĒ without any of the reported issues. Itís a great shooter and has an exceptionally smooth action.

With that said, I canít leave things alone if it isnít exactly the way I like it. I like a shorter LOP and the big loop was a tad to big for quick cycling from the shoulder wile keeping my eyes on target for follow up shots. Replaced the stock with a composite Champion youth 336 stock. Replaced the lever with a Ranger Point Precision medium loop lever. The inch shorter stock helped but the lever sealed the deal. 45/70 isnít the quickest cartridge to get quick second sight pictures with but this setup is helping. I put one of RPPís flyweight loading gates in too.

The camera mounts basically suck that are on the market for guns. Most of the ones Iíve used loosen up or have to be mounted to the top rail. When I started looking into the Midwest Industries rail for Marlins I didnít take them seriously. I finally caved the other day and ordered one. Itís super light, modern sling attachments, by pod and a camera. The biggest plusís is The whole set up lightened the gun by over a pound.

Hoping to fill the freezer this year...

That’s horrendously ugly.

But then again that’s my opinion. If you’re happy with it, then awesome. 45/70 is so much fun. Glad to hear your remlin is good. I wouldn’t hesitate to buy another remlin as long as I can check it over well in store. I haven’t used mine for hunting yet, but will soon for pig as well. Good luck with the hunt. Local? Private land? Public? Do you have experience?

Do you reload 45/70?

I concur, but he's transformed the gun for his own use. To that he is entitled (and to which I know you agree).

I'm such a purist that I had thought of replacing an excellent XS ghost-ring sights setup factory-equipped on my Marlin 1894 SBL for the standard 1894 semi-buckhorn and brass bead insert front sight... but I digress.

I am surprised to find myself happy with how OP's carbine has progressed *for him*.

Mossberg did something with a lever action .30-30 that looked like it belonged to a Transformers' character. Yikes!

Iím a hypocrite, admittedly.

My immediate thought to your comment was, ďIím such a purist that Iíd never own a SS lever because it isnít period correct.Ē

... then I remember that Iíd absolutely own a suppressed lever action if I could. 45/70 supressed would be so awesome.

You're a hypocite? Maybe that's why I'm having trouble warming up to a stainless lee-ver car-been... :headscratch: ...although I have one now, and along with it a stainless 4-5/8" Ruger flat top .44 Special Blackhawk. It's my all-weather cowboy gear.

And a suppressed 1895 SBL would be all-weather cowboy tactical.

Like I said in the beginning, I didn’t take the rail seriously. It’s still growing on me. It’s not a mall ninja AR-15 built for looks though. It’s a purpose built hunting rifle. Stainless buffs out easy and can handle the elements. Plastic stocks don’t care if they’re wet and are light as hell. The rail is awesome. Perfect for my intended use.

I don’t take most guns I see seriously. Especially CA AR15’s. Bullet button assault weapon is an oxymoron, sound like jumbo shrimp to me, lol. As for being a purest which I have been accused in the past, 9mm 1911’s and stainless lever guns cured me of that, lol.

This rail is weightless, endless attachment points for whatever, 100% weather proof. Perfect for hunting.
I agree, the Mossberg SPX 30-30 is the worlds most hideous lever gun.
