I did an article for the Cowboy Chronicle on the Marlin 1895 when it first came out in the 1895CB model.  I really liked it. It did really great with SPG lubed bullets and BP.   I didn't keep it because I don't do long range stuff.   A couple guys in our SASS club have them and use them in long large side matches.  They love them.
