    Have you tried Roger at South Yorkshire Shooting? They aren't easy to get hold of unfortunately... I waited over a year for mine!

    Thanks for you'r help guys. That's a bit too much for me Martyn. I think I have found a new one for 1100 but I have to wait a few weeks.

    Makes me want to weep! $1725 US for a Marlin Lever 45-70? Not to start a rant-fest but really: I looked at a brand-new 1895 Cowboy (26" octagonal barrel) this week for $849 US. Something is seriously wrong with the spread in prices.~Muir

    Muir,

    Our prices have to include the 20% sales tax. You only see yours at the checkout.

    Our importers have to pay a hefty licence fee for the privelege to do so, irrespective of volume of units brought in. They therefore have to load this cost at the front end.

    Our market is to small for volume dscount.

    I figured as much. Too bad; everybody should have an affordable 45-70!

    Here, sales tax is a State by State affair. We have none in Montana, which means that people from Wyoming drive up here to shop for those big-ticket items, including firearms. ~Muir

    I have handled one of these as well. They're Ok. I'd save my pennies and get a standard Marlin 45-70 and some bullet molds and other fun stuff. (Casting and loading for the 45-70 is reloader's ecstasy. It's so hard to find an in accurate load) THe standard 45-70, especially with handloads, has ample power for anything you might encounter at close range (under 100 yards) without buying custom dies and proprietary brass. I am also not too enamored with that short barrel. A scoped take down is a night mare for repeatability so that leaves iron sights. With irons, I like sight radius for accuracy. JMHO. ~Muir
