Anybody else watched it and now want a 1895 Marlin? Same gun that was in Jurassic World as well.

It's a great movie as well for those that have not seen it.

I used to have a 1895xlr and have been wanting another 45-70 for awhile and that shorter barrel 1895 (18.5") may be it.

I’ve always wanted one of the shorter 1895’s. I think they’re just right for a tracking gun.

Wind river was a real good movie but neither made me want one though it would be handy

Fit the WR movie much better than dinosaurs

I think the shorter barrel is the way to go. It's not a long range round anyways and so why not do the compact gun.

I just like lever actions so I couldn't help but like it.

Of course I need one too. A brush gun in the southern high plains is a necessity peep

Agreed. I didn't realize it was in Jurassic until I searched the gun to see what model it was.

I was impressed with Wind River on the gun side of things for a movie. Yeah they exaggerated the power of the rifle but the gun safety part at the beginning was pretty good.

Of course. I always thought Marlin was pretty sharp to notice what people were doing with their rifles and followed suit to meet demand.

They love them on the Alaskan peninsula. Compact, powerful, 7 rounds.

From what I understand, that was the main group of people modifying the originals that spurred Marlin to offer it as a factory option.

Yes. Short barrel, enlarged lever loop for gloved hand, stainless, easy to acquire sight/bead, etc.

Had one long before WR movie, I lived next to the WRIR and a short 45-70 has a calming effect on you in BEAR country. Mine is the Alaskan CoPilot.

I have a JM stamped Guide Gun (took the rings off so it is now open sights):



I carry it in bear country. With the short barrel (18.5 inch) and open sights it swings better and points faster than anything else I own. Shoots 405 grain Buffalo Bore at 2000 fps - just under 3600 ft-lbs.

A friend of mine is a gunsmith in Alabama specializing in Ruger Single Action customizations- usually geared for heavy “bear” loads as he likes to go to Alaska and bear hunt. Here’s a nice Marlin 44 rifle he currently has up on GB that would be a good bear country lever.
