    LOL…Absolutely raining hominy…….nice firearm

  2. David V. on October 19, 2022 at 9:09 pm

    I have four JM marked original Marlin rifles. It’s going to be hard to beat the real Marlins in my opinion. Hope Ruger can present something more than this one model soon.

  3. Tim Skiff on October 19, 2022 at 9:09 pm

    Gets mighty nasty with 500 grain bullets i reckon.

  4. Martin's on October 19, 2022 at 9:13 pm

    Does it have the giant UGLY warning label?

  5. J D on October 19, 2022 at 9:13 pm

    That guide gun looks beautiful, nice video btw thanks for the heads up 👍

  6. PinkOld on October 19, 2022 at 9:15 pm

    12:00 – That idea to put the chain under the can to emboss the can bottom from the force of that big slug was brilliant.

  7. Ryan Wilson on October 19, 2022 at 9:16 pm

    I miss my 1924 Marlin Model 93 in 30-30. One of these days I’ll get it back.

  8. Denis Degamon on October 19, 2022 at 9:16 pm

    I have an orginal 45/70 Marlin Guide Gun with magna ported barrel.
    I got it at least 15 plus years ago and it is a beast.

  9. Flinty McDuff on October 19, 2022 at 9:18 pm

    I’m not sure why folkd consider Ruger as the "savior" of Marlin. Ruger has pretty much ruined whatever quality lines they had to go cheap. The beautiful Number 1 is pretty much a thing of the past as is the Model 77 line for the most part. Will we ever see the return of the standard 1895? 336? Model 60? If Ruger is worried about the Model 60 outselling thec10/22 maybe they should consider THEY OWN BOTH. The 45-70 really wasn’t made for such a short barrel. Glad to see an honest review. Thank you.

    I’m wanting a stainless 357 with threaded barrel.

    Now since you have the ear, of the manufacturer. Please let them know that the public is eagerly awaiting for them to hit the shelves !!!! Since Ruger obtained Marlin, finding a Marlin lever action of any caliber is next to impossible. Not to mention that someone really took the "supply and demand " aspect to heart. Because the price increased and "if" you find one in any retail store or online outlet. You one better buy it and two your going to pay top dollar for it. If you pass on it the line behind you of willing buyers is endless. So it will be sold regardless of the price marked on it.
    It’s almost shameful that the good old. Utilitarian lever actio rifle. Has become a high dollar rare commodity. I don’t even want to venture a guess. At what the polished blued steel with octagon barrel is priced at .
    Henry, has been taking over the lever action market in the meantime

  13. William Collins on October 19, 2022 at 9:21 pm

    Ruger is able to do a good job on stainless an a stainless truck gun is perfect !!!

  14. Moldovawineimporter Moldova Traders LLC on October 19, 2022 at 9:22 pm

    If an auto loader is to your liking, then KAK industries sell AR 10 uppers and full AR 10’s in 450 Marlin.
    The AR 10 is far superior to these Marlins.
    With the muzzle break on the AR 10 in 450 Marlin you can stan on target and as soon as the gun fires it is loaded again.
    If bigger in 45 caliber is wanted, then the AR 10 can be built in 458 WSM that puts the 45/70 to shame.
    I own an AR 10 upper in 375 WSM which is just light more power than the 375 H&H magnum.

  15. John Matthews on October 19, 2022 at 9:25 pm

    You did the world a great service, you took out a can of hominy! I hate that stuff.

    I hope Ruger brings back some of the Marlin 22 lever guns. I’d like to have one.

  16. Wayne Pennington on October 19, 2022 at 9:26 pm

    thats not very good on rugers part first of all the forearm just aint making it. to fat for one thing. ruger could do better an use better wood like marlin did.

  17. Hal Curtis on October 19, 2022 at 9:26 pm


  18. ChipsterB on October 19, 2022 at 9:26 pm

    Non-fluted bolt is interesting.

    Kudos to both you and Ruger. Obviously Ruger provided you with the gun. I assume that they are paying you as well. Most companies today would shut you down regarding that hammer/bolt engagement issue, insisting that they be allowed to fix it and that you not mention it. Many reviewers would happily go along with that. You chose to show us the problem. Ruger chose to allow you to show us *and* committed to fixing it. That is unfortunately rare in today’s world of manipulated messaging, and I thank you both.

  19. Mark Taylor on October 19, 2022 at 9:27 pm

    What a beautiful rifle , and a great review . Thank You Sir .

  20. David Fultz on October 19, 2022 at 9:28 pm

    What a beautiful gun !
    I’m hoping they produce one chambered in 500 S&W.

  21. TurtleWolf Pack on October 19, 2022 at 9:29 pm

    Nope, not waiting for that one. They need to get over the stumpy 1895s and make the long barrel cowboy with the octagonal barrel already.

  22. Jim Sagray on October 19, 2022 at 9:29 pm

    Just picked up my guide gun today that I ordered, has the same issue w/ bolt and hammer. I will say the fit and finish between wood and metal is impressive.

  23. Ron Herman on October 19, 2022 at 9:29 pm

    glad I have my Marlin made 1895 in .45-70….it is a beast. Very adaptable with a QR release on a Leupold Scout Scope along with Ghost Ring aperture sight on rear with a fiber optic up front where I drilled out a hole in sight hood to let light in and still provide protection. It has never let me down….even with full loads from Buffalo Bore or Garret. Great review on the new version…

  24. Slowhiker2020 on October 19, 2022 at 9:30 pm

    Would buy it in a heartbeat, if it wasn’t for the laminate stock. Great review!

  25. Phoenix Popow on October 19, 2022 at 9:32 pm

    I sure do hope Ruger brings back the .450 Marlin. My family owns a few of them and obtaining ammo is no joke. I absolutely love my Ruger No.1 in .450 Marlin, it will never leave my family.

  26. sam hill on October 19, 2022 at 9:33 pm

    I’m sure there’s a lot more to come. A 336 in 30-30 will certainly be on the table. It just takes time.

  27. Wayne Pike on October 19, 2022 at 9:34 pm

    Don’t like the checkering

  28. Chuckin Steel on October 19, 2022 at 9:35 pm

    I have a jp model over 30 yrs old and it does the same thing just not so bad

  29. PinkOld on October 19, 2022 at 9:36 pm

    Great job on you for making Ruger aware of the hammer/bolt issue so that that they can correct it.
    It seems that you haven’t given up on your engineering expertise.

  30. Trapdoor Springfield Model 1888 on October 19, 2022 at 9:36 pm

    I strongly recommend that Ruger make the loading gate butter smooth on that Guide Gun. Also, they should make the unloading of it have the same smoothness you reference that the Trapper has. The reason is that the Marlin brand is still recovering from serious damage and so people are still going to be skittish when being asked to put down a sizeable chunk of change. And anything that can be perceived as a negative can blow up and hurt sales and reputation; especially if there is a perception (real or imagined) that the J.M. stamped Marlins are still better.

    Also, a lot of gun people aren’t going to perceive one gun as being a deluxe model and the other being a premium. They are going to compare them head to head and they will see the price difference between them as being primarily the use of stainless steel and a fluted bolt in one and not the other.

    Anyways, I wish Marlin the best of luck because more quality lever guns on the market are a good thing in my view.

  31. scott mccall on October 19, 2022 at 9:38 pm

    great guns but ruger is out of their minds with the new pricing….My money will go to henry….The stainless version was my dream gun but for double the price ….no thanks

  32. AJM2 on October 19, 2022 at 9:40 pm

    Please let this be the beginning of the end for Remlin.

  33. Jack Phillips on October 19, 2022 at 9:41 pm

    Great job on the review. I love all my JM Marlins, It’s great to see Ruger doing a fine job keeping them alive.

  34. PhilippicPhilodox on October 19, 2022 at 9:41 pm

    The US Weather Service has reported a localized weather anomaly: hominy hail. Stay tuned for updates. Seriously, that was an informative and entertaining review. Thanks!

  35. Forward on October 19, 2022 at 9:41 pm

    I’ve still got my fingers crossed for a traditional 1895 in 444 Marlin!

  36. Wonka Chocolates on October 19, 2022 at 9:41 pm

    Yeah, but it still kind of sucks on quality.

  37. Wayne Pennington on October 19, 2022 at 9:42 pm

    i think that issue with the bolt contacting the hammer is mostly you works just fine looks like. to me.

  38. Bubba Biker on October 19, 2022 at 9:42 pm

    Fingers crossed Ruger/Marlin will re-introduce the 1894 in 2023!

  39. P Beaman on October 19, 2022 at 9:43 pm

    I am probably the only person in the WORLD but I want one in 356winchester . I hope someday they do a special run

  40. Jeffery Smith on October 19, 2022 at 9:43 pm

    I have no interest in a 45/70. Ruger/Marlin offers no choice.

  41. James Palmer on October 19, 2022 at 9:45 pm

    That’s a lot of hominy.

  42. David DeJong on October 19, 2022 at 9:48 pm

    Excellent video! I have a 2019 made 1895 CBA with the 18.5" octagon barrel and they will have to pry this gun out of my cold dead hands. I would like to see Ruger bring these back also. I load and cast for my gun so I shoot it cheaply. Ain’t nothing more fun than shooting a 45-70 lever gun! Thanks for the video

  43. Mark Scates on October 19, 2022 at 9:48 pm

    It’s raining hominy! Great cinematography and production on what appears to be a potentially fine firearm. I wonder if Marlin/Ruger will fix my guide rifle as well since it has the same flaw that yours does.

  44. Mark Chambers on October 19, 2022 at 9:53 pm

    Watching from south Louisiana, thanks !

  45. John Scruggs sr on October 19, 2022 at 9:55 pm

    They need to put 450 marlin back in production. 450 will out preform 45-70. Sorry, I own ony. 450 of course. They let us down. Yea I have bought dies and have plenty of ammo. Thank God I loaded up.

  46. JH586 on October 19, 2022 at 9:55 pm

    Excellent video of a gorgeous rifle. I’m a Marlin man from way back, but these prices are brutal!🤠🤨

  47. Ken Solberg on October 19, 2022 at 9:55 pm

    Nice job 👏

  49. Shane Medeiros on October 19, 2022 at 9:57 pm

    Is ruger bringing back the 1895cb’s?

  50. K2 Custom on October 19, 2022 at 9:58 pm

    Great to see that Ruger is producing a quality Marlin brand again, and glad that they seem to be taking your input seriously. I have no doubts that they will continue to refine their production issues.
