While we were at the Wild West Guns party last night, the fine folks behind the counter busted out this little beauty and we could NOT stop staring at it and fondling it. The gun, not the girl. What you’re looking at is a modified Marlin 1895 Guide Gun that they have hand crafted into the finest lever gun that I have ever seen. It now sports a chamber for the .457 WWG Magnum cartridge, a round that pushes a 350gr bullet 2100 feet per second, and can chamber and fire a .45/70 Government cartridge (for “cheap” plinking) as well as a .410 shotgun cartridge. But wait, there’s more…
The gun comes with all of the wonderful features Chris posted about on his Marlin rescue gun — fantastic single stage trigger, gigantic loop on the lever — but it also comes with amazing peep sights with a fiber optic front sight as well as a rail for a scout scope. And on this rifle that makes it PERFECT.
But wait, there’s more!
This gun is designed to break apart for easy transport and storage, making it almost half as long as the fully assembled rifle. And because the scope is mounted on the barrel itself there’s no shift in the zero whatsoever.
BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE!
What would you pay for something like this? $2,000? $3,000? Well, for this special blog-based offer all this can be yours for the low low price of $800 (price of 1895 guide gun not included in $800).
I… I want one. Bad. Hogs would tremble in fear when they see me with this on the ranch.
