I fell in lust with this rifle after shooting a friend's at deer camp last year. Since I could not
talk him out of his I started looking.

I soon realized they are hard to find. After looking for several months I had given up
hope of finding one except for the very overpriced auctions on Gunbroker. Last Friday
I was surfing and browsed through Gunbroker and to my surprise an auction for one
was there. This auction unlike the other 2 on there was much closer to actual market
value so I bid on it. I assumed that it would sky rocket at the end but it didn't and I got
it. I now own my first 45-70!

Congrats on finding yourself a gorgeous rifle! Earlier this year I bought a Marlin 1895 TSBL, a somewhat similar set up. Mine has a Skinner sight set, instead of the XS with the scout rail. It originally came with certain blued parts, the loading gate and forend cap which I switched out for SS. It also came with a hard wood stock painted in a black finish, later I was able to find the same laminate stock you have and changed that out. I like the look of the black stock on the rifle, but I thought the laminate would be more hard wearing for hunting.

Here's a photo after that parts change, but before I changed the stock.
