MARLIN – 1895 SBL 45-70 RIFLE FOR SALE
Chambered in 45-70 Govt, the new 1895 SBL features a 19” threaded barrel fitted with a matchpolished thread protector. The barrel is made of 410 stainless steel and is cold hammer-forged with six-groove rifling. The receiver is machined from a 416 stainless steel forging and the breech bolt is made of a high-strength, aircraft-grade chrome-moly steel. The bolt is spiral-fluted and nickel-plated for an attractive appearance and very smooth cycling. The big loop lever is made of 416 stainless steel and has smooth edges that go easy on the hand.
Marlin’s engineers have completed the company’s transition from an old-time rifle maker to a thoroughly modern manufacturer, and the quality of these rifles reflects that.
For example, when Marlin now cuts the chambers on the Model 1895, it does so in just two passes. Previously, chambering these lever guns required several machining cuts. This is significant, because every time you make a cut you introduce a certain amount of tolerance slop. The more passes, the more those tolerances can stack, potentially degrading accuracy and performance. These new chambers are much more precise.
For the first time, Marlin is cutting some parts via wire EDM. This advanced type of machining uses a thin electrically charged wire that makes exact and smooth cuts. The notches on the hammer that engage the sear are EDM cut, resulting in a very crisp trigger break with none of the grit, creep and overtravel that is often found on lever-action rifles.
