a new one we are working on. Marlin said it couldn't be done

but they were wrong. It is a Marlin 1895 and one we have been working on for a good while. We just ran 2 boxes of ammo thru it without a hitch. It is not going to be for everyone but to me it is a refreshing new rifle. And something that is new and unique in custom lever action rifles, at least I think it is. These pics are of a gun about halfway finished but it works and works flawlessly.

I will let you think on it a bit. It will be chambered in 2 calibers at first, then maybe one or two more later.

On a 1895. Gotta be a high pressure cartridge maybe?

The bull barrel probably profile doesn’t mean anything

Wednesday, August 08, 2018, 07:44 (6 days ago) @ Gary Reeder

... Gary just has not got around to profiling it .

Marlin was able to get higher pressure cartridges like the 308 Marlin express into their receiver by changing the barrel threads into the receiver to give them more strength.

The rim size of the 4570 is about as big as you can fit into the frame… So I don’t think it’s a great big cartridge

I think it is what we always wanted but never got ... is it the 357 maximum?

out of all these guesses one of you got it right, and

Wednesday, August 08, 2018, 10:16 (6 days ago) @ Gary Reeder

a couple of the guesses we are already doing, like the 50 Alaskan and the 475 GNR. We have been doing them for years. But some of you must have been drinking heavily last night with your guesses...600 Nitro, 20 gauge, 50-70, 610 GNR, 12 gauge, 458 Win Mag??? You guys need to ease off the Whiskey and stick with the prune juice.

Well of all the guesses and you said

Wednesday, August 08, 2018, 12:28 (6 days ago) @ Gary Reeder

One of us knuckle heads got it right. I’m pairing up with Huey and going with the 500 s&w. That is my final answer! Lol

I’m hoping for a 500 S&W but I had to guess too lol

Marlin actually introduced one at the shot show 12-15 years ago and I ordered one. Sadly it never made it to production and they cancelled my order.

I spoke to the factory and they told me the problem was that they could never get it to feed reliably. This seems so square up with Marlin telling Gary it could not be done.

sorry Mark, no Teddy bear
