I just bought this rifle and I have to say that I love it! It is so realiable..... It is basically a compact gun with a ton of power. Also the looks are AMAZING!! Its my new favorite rifle, I highly recommend this gun!!!
This is probably my new favorite rifle! I get compliments all the time on how “sexy” this gun is. I like that is short and is quick to bring up on target. The action was a little stiff at first but after about 15 rounds it found its home. It’s a fun gun to shoot and packs a pretty good punch with a little recoil.
Excellent 45/70govt. To me it is my compact monster. Lighter that expected, however it shot just beautiful. Went thru 40 rounds, 2 different brands. It smooth and pure joy and it likes to love tap back. Overall the gun is magnanimously elegant. The laminated hardwood is very unique and beautiful black and grey, it even looks silver and a very dark blue in low light. Plus bonus larger loop. Just perfect.
I have to thanks Scheels for stocking this item. I had to drive a fair distance for this one. Painless and quick with Scheels.
Purchased this rifle to add to collection, it is a compact monster! The ultimate "bush rifle", easy to carry and powerful enough to take most anything down. Recoil is not as bad as I anticipated and accuracy is pretty good (tested at ~100 yards). I had been looking for one for a year or so and finally found it at Scheels!
Fit and finish was good. Handles well in under brush, much better than shotgun for deer. "Kick" is more like a push than a shoulder strike. Only problem is bullet port, really stiff, finger pincher. Hope it goes away with time.
Purchased this gun from Scheels in Johnston CO in November of 2017. Fit and finish was very good with the following exception. The butt stock pad screws caused a crack in the stock. Contacted dealer and they sent a new replacement stock with in 1 week. Outstanding service! Out of the box the gun was very close to 1 MOA at 100 yards. Probably could have been better if it was not so much fun to shoot. I have tried many different loads through this gun (including bear loads) and have not been disappointed with any of the bullet groupings. I have enough confidence in this rifle to Elk hunt in the area I hunt. Plan on using it in Alaska for a spring bear hunt and a fall Moose hunt.
Marlin is back and they have an exciting line of great firearms. Recommendation; check them out!!
