1895

Hello all. Actually came across this site lookin for a review on a tool. Read through a couple of the threads an was impressed with the civility and that I don't see tool snobs pushin their top tier tools. About myself though, I've been making sawdust for 30 odd years, I'm 58. Learn something new bout every day, sometimes from 20 year olds. I'm actually a journeyman sheet metal worker. Fun trade too. Consider myself a avid dyi'er. Probably a tad above an amateur. Lol. I rebuild and refinish old furniture, build tables an shelving. Also a killer at picture frames. Lol. And just so you know, I do like, and own some top tier tools. Just figger if harbor freight has a tool that'll do the job ill buy it. Have a few of them too an swear by em. I'm from central Michigan and and a 12 year US navy veteran. Boatswainsmate. Fairwinds y'all an thanks for letting me in.

Welcome to the forum! When you get a minute complete your profile with location so it will show in the left panel and you can add your first name to your signature line so it will show in each post. We won't remember central Michigan past this post and we like first names.

We'd love to see some of your projects so post some photos when you're ready. We like shop tours, too.

Welcome, 1895

I wondered the significance of 1895, so I looked it up for you history buffs:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1895_in_the_United_States

Not much happened that year.
They shot John Wesley Hardin, had an automobile race ....Bucky Fuller, Buster Keaton and Babe Ruth were born ....

https://worldhistoryproject.org/1895

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

Hardin was the real deal. People like J W Hardin is the reason we have capital punishment. But he wasn’t executed, he was killed by another gunman in Texas after he was released from prison.

If you don't have time to do it right the first time, when will you have time to do it over?

Love the history you guys dug up. Old west history buff myself. Thinkin about just letting you all wonder about the tag 1895 but decided to let you know, marlin also introduced their 45/70 lever action that year. And between that and my no. 27 32-20 pump they are my favorite fifles. Had to come up with a name an it was quick enough so there ya have it.

1894 Marlins?

I have 2 Marlins in .44 Mag., one I bought new, the other, much older, from a friend. I assume the '94's which have the round barrel, and the '95's have the octagonal barrel? The older one has a rare Marlin 4 X 32 scope which they made for 1 year only, or so I was told. I also learned that the 1895 pretty much changed the outcome of many battles because it was very robust and could handle higher power cartridges, but I confirm that. The Winchester was not quite as strong, if I recall my source correctly ......?

Here's some history:

My 95 has a round barrel, but it is about a 2003-04 model, it was during my gun of the week mode LOL I got up to 48 guns in my harem, so my wife told me I couldn't get anymore until I got the gun case finished


It was about 2/3 of the way done when my bone headed kid laid the power steering pump on the top of the base and power steering fluid ran all across the top and down the sides


Lucky I didn't have a gun when I discovered it LOL


You know what they say about kids, if the can't break it they $hit on it
