I just picked one up a while back, and finally got to shoot it a few weeks ago. Anyone else got one?

I have one and it's my favorite. I mainly use it for Bear and Hog hunting but I'm considering putting a scope back on it and use it deer hunting. MY shoulder doesn't like it at all.

I put a 4x on mine and it seems like it will be a great brush gun for deer/bear/hogs and pretty much anything in North America. I am still thinking I may have gone a little overkill. If anyone is interested in a trade for something a bit lighter let me know.

I have a 357 and boy its handy. If you have a heavy trigger and want to lighten it up the Wild West Trigger is the ticket. I dropped mine (only complaint with the rifle) from 8ish to 3-4lbs.

I have a SS model and it shoots all loads from mild to wild well. I like to shoot cast boolits in it and it does well on deer.

I have had one for 7 years now. I deer hunt with it in thick woods. I have killed alot of deer with it very little tracking when shot with the 450. I like to use it in a tree stand and in the blind with the short barell it is easy to move around. It is a very good shooting gun I did not think a lever gun would be as accurate as it is.

I would be interested in trading my 1895GS for a .35 Whelen or .338-06 bolt or pump. I have 2 RCBS boolit moulds, RCBS dies, peep sight, Starline and Winchester brass, some loaded ammo, etc.

the wild west trigger is the best thing ever for marlin lever actions
with a little work on the hammer spring i dropped my trigger pull on my 450 to just over 2 lbs

Good gun. Mine is a keeper also. I've always been a fan of big bore lever actions.
