UPDATE! WTS in Maine: Marlin 1895S 45-70, pre-cross bolt safety

#1 Post by Mainehunter » Sat Nov 30, 2019 11:36 am

I have a Marlin 1895S that I picked up a few years back from guy at my gun range. It's been sitting in the back of my gun safe and don't see myself using it anytime soon. If I can remember, the SN# puts it just before they changed over to the pre-cross bolt safety so early 80's. It's a very nice, unaltered levergun rifle, screws haven't been boogered with nice straight grain walnut stock. At one point, from the previous owner had a scope mount on it but he removed it so there are no screw plugs. For pics, click the link below to view the folder that I created. Would like $825 and that includes shipping and insurance. Not interested in any trades. Any questions let me know!

I can add that Mainehunter is a good man to deal with.
a Pennsylvanian who has been accused of clinging to my religion and my guns......Good assessment skills.

Thanks gentlemen! I'll see how this goes. I've seen one like mine but in rougher shape going for the same price. Around here you don't see them quite often.
