Hey fellow memebers, I am considering starting to shop for a marlin 1895 in .45/70 with the 18.5" barrel. Do any of you have experience with this rifle? It will be my first lever gun, since I have always been a bolt and semi-auto man. I'm kind of just looking for a rifle that will be small and easy to pack around, but still pack hella punch. Also, I would like a new one, but might consider a good used one. I live in Missouri, and there are quite a few gun shows that I go to, but I was wondering what a good price would be on a used one. Anyway, I would appreciate any information you have to share. Thanks, and good shooting.
