New from Marlin for 2018 is the 1895 Trapper SBL (Stainless Big Loop). The tried-and-true configuration of our famous 45-70 Gov’t rifle. The Model 1895 Trapper features a 16.5” stainless steel barrel, a Wild West gun style lever, and a Skinner peep sight. Chambered in the .45-70, the 1895 Trapper SBL utilizes the time-tested Marlin 1895 action that was built to handle full power big-bore loads. As with 1895s that came before it, the TSBL features side-ejection, so mounting an optic is an option. But don’t discount the iron sights that come standard with this rifle; the adjustable Skinner rear peep sight and post front sight are durable and well-designed—perfect for fast shooting in dense cover and refined enough to make accurate shots at surprising distances.
