Disassembly, Cleaning and Reassembly of a Marlin 1895 GBL

Disassembly, Cleaning and Reassembly of a Marlin 1895 GBL

Disassembly of my Marlin 1895 GBL , to clean it thoroughly followed by reassembly to store it ready for next season. I’ve made the unfortunate discovery of some rust, which was taken care of swiftly. I really enjoy the cleaning process of my rifle as I ensure they stay in tip-top condition for a long time. I really love my Marlin.

    Great disassembly video!

    If your worried about your gun barrel worh steel showing through. I have refinsihed a few rifles with some bad bluing… using Birchwood Casey Perma blue.

    My 1895 Marlin doesn’t have a season. I love the gun and 45-70 round so it gets shot a lot. I have it a part completely now but normally I just do a barrel and action cleaning. Good video!

    Awesome job explaining the process without over complicating it!

    Merci ! Video très claire et facile a suivre.

    I liked your deer tallow idea, it seems pretty natural. Does it smell, will it go rancid?

    Good video, I too own a Marlin, but mine is the Cowboy version. Marlin did a fine job, they are easy to break down compared to a Winchester, ask me how I know!

    First off, great video. Most of these videos don’t show the detail you did, very well done. Second, I’m having a weird issue with my loop lever being too easy to pop down out of the "locked" position. When I disassemble and connect the lever to my bottom plate it locks tight and takes a bit more force to pull the lever down (which I like). With everything assembled I can pop the lever out with almost zero force. When shooting I have to squeeze the lever extremely tight to be sure it’s in battery to fire. The only thing I can think of is something is providing a bit of downward force on that trigger spring assembly. Any ideas?

    Excellent tutorial! Thank you for taking the time to post this!

    One year Update: The deer tallow worked like a charm! I posted some photos in the community post section, can I link a post in the comment? not sure…

    Fairly new GBL owner. Thanks for this. Big shortcut!

    Hello
    What is the rifle stand that you use for cleaning and can it be used for target shooting (zeroing the scope) as well?



  17. Aaron Reinhardt on October 21, 2022 at 10:02 pm

    Keep it up! Your videos are much appreciated
