North Haven, CT –-( Still in the first year of its production, the Marlin 1895SBL rifle has garnered quite a following. The latest accolade for this full-featured lever-action comes from OnTarget magazine. In the August 2009 issue, the editorial staff at OnTarget deemed the 1895SBL worthy of their 2009 Editor’s Choice Award.

Bill Battles, Editor of OnTarget, gives the Model 1895SBL high marks for its many innovative features saying, “With the XS® scout scope mount and aperture rear sight, the 1895SBL is ideally suited for fast-paced, close-quarters hunting.”

Chambered for the legendary 45-70 Government, the Model 1895SBL is built to handle the worst Mother Nature can throw its way. All major components – barrel, receiver, trigger guard plate, magazine tube, loading gate and enlarged loop lever; are constructed of durable stainless steel and housed in a weather-impervious black and gray laminated stock.

Other distinctive features include 18 ½-inch heavy barrel contour, full length tubular magazine with 6-shot capacity, deluxe recoil pad and nickel-plated swivel studs.

Ready for a quick call to action, the Model 1895SBL features the durable XS Ghost Ring Sight System which allows for faster target acquisition and improved accuracy over conventional sights. For those who prefer using optics, the 1895SBL comes standard with a XS Lever Scout Mount™ that provides a rock-solid mounting platform for a variety of options including long-eye relief scout scopes, traditional scopes and even red dot or holographic sights.

Built for maximum performance and recognized by the editors of OnTarget magazine, the Model 1895SBL should be your rifle of choice.
