Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. (NYSE: RGR) is pleased to announce the Marlin Model 1895™ Guide Gun. Formerly known as an “1895 GBL” (Guide Big Loop), this model is Ruger’s first reintroduction in the Guide Gun family of rifles and Ruger’s first introduction of an alloy steel Marlin rifle with a blued finish.

“The Guide Gun is our next step in the expansion of the Marlin line,” stated CEO and President, Chris Killoy. “Marlin fans should be encouraged by the growth in product offerings and know that we are going to continuously expand into other models.”

Chambered in .45-70 Govt., this rifle features a 19″ cold hammer-forged barrel with a 1:20″ twist. The threaded barrel (11/16″- 24), comes with a match-polished thread protector and will accommodate common muzzle devices.

This Guide Gun sports a handsome brown laminate stock with crisp checkering to help maintain a good grip in virtually all weather conditions. This rifle also utilizes a traditional, fully adjustable semi-buckhorn sight system. The alloy steel receiver, big loop lever, and trigger guard plate feature a non-glare, blued, satin finish. The bolt is nickel-plated for smooth cycling and durability.

    Would the new Marlin/ Ruger come out with the Cowboy in 45 colt, blued and walnut, preferably an octagonal barrel of 24 inches?

    Perfect Maybe 357 Magnum Coming Soon?

    I am waiting for the 94’s in 44mag, 45Colt, 41mag and 357mag. Oh and please no big loop levers.

    “We can’t make enough of the other models to satisfy demand, so let’s retool and introduce another one that nobody will have in stock.”

    It still has the push button safety on a lever gun, STUPID. I thought Ruger would be smart and fix that. I won’t be buying one unless some aftermarket company makes a receiver without the safety so I can replace it.

      Henry fixed it. Same action,easier way to unload and no crosbolt safety.

    the 1895 s/s is the way to go on this, it is an awesome pack weapon that will serve for many many years, I have taken down many animals with the glass of your choosing!!!
