Big Loop lever action with heavy 18.5 inch stainless steel barrel, stainless steel receiver, trigger guard plate, loading gate and loop. Full length tubular magazine. Weather-impervious laminated stock. Features the XS Ghost Right Sight System and comes standard with a XS lever rail.
Destined to be a top choice of North Country guides, it delivers the massive punch of a 45 70 Gov't. with unmatched speed & the lethal assurance of a 6 round capacity-- thanks to a full length magazine tube. Rapid target acquisition comes natural with its 18" 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.

Hard to find these- I ordered mine and had it the next week at my FFL = very happy with the whole process - and love the Marlin
I just got mine this year and love it , very well balanced and a beast in the hill .
Get them while they last! I was extremely lucky to stumble upon Impact guns having the Marlin 1895SBL in stock. And for such a great price! Shipping and FFL transfer were fast. Upon inspecting the firearm it is absolutely magnificent. Already mounted an optic to make it look just like the T-Rex gun in Jurassic World. If you find this Marlin under $1000 BUY IT IMMEDIATELY! You will not regret it.
I don't have it, but I want it. It's the rifle Chris Pratt carries in Jurassic World. I mean come on, dino defense? Who doesn't want one?
the only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because it had some sharp edges from machining that I had to smooth out after I brought it home. I completely disassembled it, smoothed and polished the action, and it is as smooth as silk. all seems were tight between metal and wood and the front sight is at 12 o'clock as it should be. for me the ghost ring seems too big and is like looking at an ant through a stove pipe. i will eventually put a smaller diameter ghost ring on it.
I can't say enough good things about this rifle. The balance and all the ergonomics are perfect. The oversized lever loop shows that someone built this "for use". Since most large game hunting is in Winter it stands to reason most people will be wearing gloves, right? The XS rail is perfect for mounting optics a little farther away than most rifles to prevent getting a black eye and the ghost ring sight with white front ramp sight are actually usable. The recoil pad really does it job. You'll be very glad its there and reduces recoil below 12ga shotgun levels. Stainless = less rusting than bluing. The laminate stock is beautiful and very rigid. I drilled some holes to mount an Accu-riser cheek pad and it was very hard to drill into. While most poo-poo the rainbow trajectory of the 45-70, the fact remains that with the proper load this round can drop anything with legs on every continent on Earth. Any seasoned hunter will tell you most shots are under 150yrds. Rounds range from 300gr to just under 600gr. Buy a rangefinder! This is my only rifle, but not my first. Be wary of the man with only one gun, for he surely knows how to use it. If you're even considering this rifle, buy it. You will never sell it.
