Just found a new old stock Marlin 1895 GBL with made in Conn. stamped on the barrel. Checked it out real good. Lever works smooth sight look ok and the stock to metal fit is excellant. It must have been made just when Remington just bought out Marlin. I know they moved all the machinery to Illon, New York. And the quality got bad for that period. I have to wait for my new mold to get here so I can cast up some boolits so I can fire it.
