I have gotten the lever itch a few months ago and am looking for a lever gun.
Any fans here?
I am eyeing a Marlin 1895 guide gun in 45/70. It has 30 rounds threw her. If Wild West Guns makes it, this rifle has it (trigger, large lever, ghost rings, extractor ect..)
I am hooked on a guide gun, I like how short they are, it will make the perfect tractor gun to have with me in the tractor to blast deer with that are destroying our crops. My AR just doesn't quite do a "good" job on deer. It makes a good seagull gun in the spring and woodchuck gun in the spring and summer though.
I thought of getting a 30/30, but why get a 30 cal when I can have a 45 cal?
If there are any Marlin nuts here do any of you have a Guide Gun and a GBL? That GBL caught my eye but by talking to the owner of this Guide gun I am looking at said that the GBL is to muzzle heavy.
