    I picked up this new Marlin 1895CB "Cowboy" 45-70 this afternoon. It was between the Guide Gun and the Cowboy, and the classic good looks of the Cowboy won out.

    It's got a real smooth action, and a good trigger. It should be a lot of fun.

    :) Very handsome gun. The Guide Gun is a bit :shock: stubby in appearance (IMO), but it shoots great. Have fun. The 45-70 is really a fun cartridge.///olde 8) pharte///

    I've shot about half a box through it, and it was a TON of FUN!

    It handles very nicely, and I like the sound it makes! BOOOM!

    I like this rifle a lot. Did some more shooting. This time with some hunting loads. A bit more recoil, but nothing to cry about.
