    Picked this up the other day. told the wife the price was amazing (it was) and it'd be easy to make a few hundred bucks on if I want to sell it. I didnt tell her, however, that I dont ever want to sell it. LOL!

    "The Ten Round Hammer" on top and "Big Ern" below. .45-70 is a hell of a caliber.

    The 1895 is a good rifle. I love my 1895GS and I wouldn't mind getting a longer barreled model some day like you did. Enjoy!

    My 1895GS is one of my favorite rifles ever and has a permanent place in my stable. As you can see form the pic I've done a little bit of work to it, and have a little bit more planned as well :)

    I eventually want to get a Happy Trigger kit in mine as well as in the Western Auto Revelation 200 I have. Perhaps a ghost ring sight upgrade and a low power variable scope. The sights in the 1895 aren't too bad but I'm having problems with the 1960's era sights in the Western Auto. Being that the front sight is a dove tail design, I may just scope it and be done. There is not a lot of options for it outside of taking it to a gunsmith and see what he can figure out. The one closest to me isn't a very user friendly person, so I would rather not use him if I can help it and I don't trust big box store gunsmiths beyond warranty work around here. Any way, I love the 1895 and just want to tweak it a little to make it even better.

    My .45-70 Guide Gun was last reported somewhere in Africa. Probably as a big game backup. Brutal and expensive gun to fire. Had severe "wants" for the gun. No regrets on the sale. :)

    Mine costs about 38 cents per shot and is such low recoil I can shoot it all day. :)

    Mine is a bit more than that since I haven't had a chance nor the money to setup a reloading bench. I do intend to remedy that in the future once I get some other things done. Though I did find someone with the dies, so was able to get my saved brass reloaded for a significantly lower cost than retail.
