Built on the popular Model 336 action, the Marlin 1895 GSBL (Guide series, Stainless steel, Big-loop, Laminate stock) is chambered in .45-70 Govt. and features a full-length tubular magazine. The beefy rifle—a modified version of its predecessor, the SBL—also comes equipped with a set of fully adjustable Williams Fire Sights. And yes, that's a green laminate stock with black spiderweb texturing. To learn more about this unique-looking lever-action, watch our latest "NRA Gun of the Week" video above hosted by American Rifleman's Kelly Young.
