Marlin 1895SBL Big Loop Lever Action 45-70 Gov’t Rifle, 18.5 Inch Barrel, Laminate Stock, Stainless, Marlin 70478
Destined to be a top choice of North Country guides, it delivers the massive punch of a 45–70 Govt with unmatched speed – with the lethal assurance of a 6–round capacity thanks to a full–length magazine tube. Rapid target acquisition comes natural with its 18½” barrel and XS Ghost Ring Sights and scout scope mount. And its big loop lever adds a distinctive traditional style while promoting sure follow-up shots, even with gloves. True to the inhospitable territory it was born to thrive in, the Model 1895SBL features the weather resistance of a grey/black laminated stock and stainless steel finish on all major metal components.
