    Have you shot the 600 grain bullets in 45-70?

  2. narendra irengbam on November 23, 2021 at 10:24 pm

    No guns have made me jealous as much as this one is doing. Such a magnificent hardware you got there. And with that huge rounds, it’s really a beautiful monster in small package.

    I got one years ago as a birthday present. Installed a big loop, a Williams peep sight and leave the aperture out of the peep sight for quick target acquisition. The front handguard was too thick and clunky, So I belt sanded it thinner. I also installed a curved brass butt plate as well as a brass follower and brass plated the front handguard cap. I removed the cross bolt safety and replaced it with the special made bolt. I sanded off the stock checkering and applied 4 coats of hand rubbed linseed oil. It holds 8 + 1. It is sighted in for 100 Yds. and it has a flip up receiver sight set for 300. It goes in the coffin with me.

    The perfect gun for hunting squirrels 🙂

    Who else wants that ring tone on their phone: "BOOM – ha haaaa. love that sound"

  8. Tilak Mukherjee on November 23, 2021 at 10:29 pm

    Fantastic gun…lovely

  9. Tom A Hawk on November 23, 2021 at 10:30 pm

    That is the perfect big bore lever action!

  10. Real Name on November 23, 2021 at 10:32 pm

    Shot one of these for the first time today. Most satisfying gun I’ve ever fired. Man what a treat.

  11. Giuseppe Cangiamila on November 23, 2021 at 10:35 pm

    I like Marlin 45/70

  12. Eric Hill Sr on November 23, 2021 at 10:36 pm

    Where I can get one of those?

  15. Chris Phillips on November 23, 2021 at 10:38 pm

    I have one wirh the 24 inch barrel. I would never part with it! Best hog buster there is!

  16. Randall Rogers on November 23, 2021 at 10:41 pm

    Henry makes several great 45-70s.

  17. Òne1 codm on November 23, 2021 at 10:42 pm

    This man is what 2 liters fear the most

  18. Greg Garmin on November 23, 2021 at 10:46 pm

    And kicks like a mule! You definitely know when the hammer falls.

  19. Rex Dooley on November 23, 2021 at 10:47 pm

    I enjoy listening to you,I lived all over the guitar area from 1979-1983 I loved the whole state,I definitely prefer the higher sales tax and none of the other taxes,Tennessee has got it right,Those ole boys asking for clips,You reckon they’d know what is used to load rifles with fixed mags such as an sks 30,It makes me laugh young men big on youtube talk about sticking a clip in these striker fired handguns,I find myself wondering if they have it rigged if it’s going to blow up or what. LOL

  20. John Delper on November 23, 2021 at 10:48 pm

    I came to one conclusion… if you ever had a bear attack you,
    this is the guy you’d want near by, he doesn’t miss a shot.

  21. buddy2280 on November 23, 2021 at 10:48 pm

    It’s a shame that Marlin fell into financial hardship. Such outstanding American made quality rifles.

  22. mobilegoat1 on November 23, 2021 at 10:49 pm

    Love your videos I tell my grandson to watch your videos for the safety reasons you talk about on everyone of your videos .

  23. Mike G on November 23, 2021 at 10:50 pm

    I like the 45-70, but I also really like that semi-auto pistol grip at the end of the video. Badass.

  24. Nathan Strickland on November 23, 2021 at 10:50 pm

    I love my henry 45-70. I just don’t like the small barrel on that one you have. Beautiful rifle, just toooooo short for my liking. Do you notice any difference in accuracy between that one and a longer barrel henry?

  25. TurnedLeftAtTheRockyMountains on November 23, 2021 at 10:52 pm

    Did they make a non special edition of this gun—I loved it on sight? Does look nice and short and lever action speaks to me.

    Just want shooters—going to be using the new Colt Python .357 sometime this week.
    Marlins seem to appeal to me, too (had only seen the Henry’s levers).

    She’s a beauty, H!

  26. Ed in Florida on November 23, 2021 at 10:53 pm

    Kicks like a mule.

  27. Hernán Ibars Mombelli on November 23, 2021 at 10:54 pm

    I have nice bruise because of Marlin

  28. chillshock on November 23, 2021 at 10:55 pm

    What a gorgeous gun.

  29. Mario Martinez on November 23, 2021 at 10:59 pm

    I have the chance to buy one rn cor 1200 I might just pull the trigger on it

  30. Gary pic on November 23, 2021 at 10:59 pm

    My shoulder hurts

  31. Carlos Gutierrez Jimenez on November 23, 2021 at 10:59 pm

    Very nice! Great video, 45

  32. Mike Smithey on November 23, 2021 at 11:02 pm

    I’ve got a Marlin lever action chambered in 35 Remington it’s like shooting a 4570 but a smaller caliber I use it for deer and bear but I found it it shoots a little flatter than the 4570 and has a pointed bullet instead of a flat bullet and it’s a little more accurate but hits just as hard I was surprised of the accuracy when I mounted a scope on it

  33. JakeSnakes on November 23, 2021 at 11:03 pm

    looks like it kicks like a mule dad had one a few years back , i never did shoot it tho

  34. Kent Koontz on November 23, 2021 at 11:03 pm

    Beautiful gun. Thanks for getting it out showing it. Not sure but I think that bent tree to your right marks an Indian trail.

  37. Maria de Lurdes Oliveira on November 23, 2021 at 11:08 pm

    En España se usa el rifle 444 Marlin en Monterías . Yo he tirado con él y es muy potente . Saludos cordiales desde España 👍

  38. Kevin Rollman on November 23, 2021 at 11:09 pm

    A lot of lever gun enthusiasts may not know that the ultimate 45-70 lever gun is one that is not talked about too much!! It is the Marlin 1895 Cowboy action model. I own one I bought in 2019 brand new made by Remington. Yes it took Remington around six years before they were able to perform their expertise in producing excellent Marlin lever guns. At the time Remington assumed Marlin in Connecticut the disgruntled former employees sabotaged the antiquated machine tools and destroyed most if not all the schematics and process sheets needed to produce the firearms!! But from 2011 approximately Remington bought new modern machine tools and within 5 to 6 years they mastered the Marlin lever gun!! All this Remlin baloney naysayers were blabbing about was hogwash. Even before Remington got it right with the firearms they were producing they were very personable, easily accessible, and guaranteed any Marlin lever gun for life. They were willing to make it right with any lever gun they sold. Like I said I bought mine in 2019 and by that time Remington was making history!! My 1895 Cowboy action model, beautiful dark walnut butt stock and forearm, 18 1/2 inch octagonal barrel with Ballard rifling, semi buckhorn rear sight and standard post front sight, 6+1 rounds for the tubular magazine. This model Marlin lever gun is the best of both worlds. It can fire one of the Hornady Leverevolution 325 grain FTX hollowpoint rounds up to a mile!! There is virtually no difference in velocity out of the 18 1/2 inch barrel as opposed to the 26” barrel on the Cowboy model. The Cowboy action model having a nice home defense length barrel is great for hunting, range shooting or home defense. It is very flaickable in close quarters. The lever action on my Remington made Marlin is perfect. It does not have the toy like mamby pamby feel of a Henry made lever gun!! It is just the right resistance and after applying a little Barristol gun oil the action was smooth as silk!! Out of the box my rifle shot 5 consecutive bullseyes from 75 feet without touching the rear sight. If you look and see the wonderful variety of Marlin lever guns Remington made with the finest quality ever seen before you do not know what you are missing!! If you can still find one of the Remington 2019 Marlin 1895 Cowboy action models, the 1895 CBA in 45-70 government you should purchase it immediately because I do not believe you will ever find a better made lever gun in your lifetime!! It is the most wonderful Marlin lever gun I have ever had the pleasure to shoot!! This JM fanboy club has nothing to do with quality!!

  39. Dark Energy Audio on November 23, 2021 at 11:09 pm

    I think it’s a good home defense size in place of a 12 gauge 🙂

  40. Doug Campbell on November 23, 2021 at 11:09 pm

    Great shooting for an old guy.😎

  41. Kennetha Liantluanga on November 23, 2021 at 11:13 pm

    30000 marlin 1895 stp gbl 45-70 I need let’s supply me farm veng go today I reseller

  42. Sam Brooks on November 23, 2021 at 11:13 pm

    I have a Marlin Guide Gun in .45-70, and I have shot it with 525 grain hard cast bullets at around 1650 FPS… just a few times! With those loads, it kicks like an Arkansas mule, and then gets you on the ground and tries to stomp you to death! 🙂 More moderate loads with 300 grain bullets are milder (relatively) but still stiff. All that being said, I love the little rifle and wouldn’t trade it for anything.

  43. Zhang Family on November 23, 2021 at 11:14 pm

    When a guy his size with his steady gun control is kicked that much by a .45-70, you can imagine how it would kick if avg size guy shoots it

  44. Neil Ross on November 23, 2021 at 11:15 pm

    Shot my 45-70 Marlin first at 50 yards and then at 100 yards. The site moved from one extreme to the other. Trajectory at 1330 feet per second with 405 grains is like a garden hose! It takes real skill to master that round.

  46. Eric Hill Sr on November 23, 2021 at 11:15 pm

    Now if only Hi-Point would make a 45-70 handgun I might buy one talk to somebody for us John

  47. Steven Dunn on November 23, 2021 at 11:16 pm

    Looks like that gun one of them guys used in Night of the Grizzly. In not sure but just a thought

  48. Nick on November 23, 2021 at 11:16 pm

    That is one beautiful rifle.
    I would love to have one, but the wife won’t let me ( apparently I have enough guns ).

  49. mobilegoat1 on November 23, 2021 at 11:21 pm

    Would love to see you show and fire the 45-90 Quigley .
