Here is my Lever.  Very accurate and handles like a dream.  Enjoys spitting out 325 Hornady Leverevolutions.

That big loop helps when wearing gloves in cold weather. Nice gun!

Here's a family rifle that's been used hard and put away wet. Shot a few stealers and mucho game while on the trail.

I would be careful with the 45-70 Government Hornady 325 gr LEVERevolution FTX when fired from a Marlin Model 1895. Early on there were warnings about the pointed nose acting like a firing pin when loaded in tube magazines. Usually a round nose design is the cartridge of choice.

This is 1860 Henry. I just bought it in January of this year and have yet to get out shooting it. The weather is looking like it might start warming up so I hope to shoot it soon. It is 45 colt.

I owned several Marlin levers and I only ran flat-nose or round-nose bullets for the same reasoning.

When we first got the LEVERevotution cartridges in stock it wasn't a week and a Marlin lever gun at another store had a magazine light up (go bang - explode) with this designed bullet. Cabelas went crazy as did Remington, out came the WARNINGS about this issue. Thanks Marty.

1895 marlin 45-70 shooting Winchester 300 grain ammo at 50 yards first target then 325 grain Hornady Leverevolution  ammo at 125 yards.  I am amazed that a lever gun can be this accurate.  Growing up, I was always told to go with a bolt action rifle for accuracy and that lever guns were for close range/thick timber. They were pie plate guns at 100 yards.

Hey' Tony.  With a little more work you might get that rifle shooting halfway decent.  lol!

I've fired, almost exclusively but not quite, Speer 400 grain JSP in my old Marlin 1895.  I load the cases with enough 3031 to get about 1800 fps with that bullet.  That load has killed many deer and has grouped 5 shots in 1" at 100 yards.  Couldn't do that now with anything I own.  Have fired a few factory 400 grn loads and some 300 and 350 grain bullets handloaded by someone else.  All my lever guns, except for the M99s, shoot nothing but flat or round nose bullets.

That's one of the best in my book.  My old hunting pard back when they were new picked one up, and sure made my starving student self wish I had one.  He mounted a new Weaver K4 on it, and I personally saw him make first shot hits and kills from 10 yards out to over 400 yards.  How can you beat that?

I have owned several (new) Model 88's in .308, .264 and .284 lever guns, sold them to the family 40 years ago and they still have them. Between the 88's and their 94's they have been deer killing machines since day one.

I've only got the one Marlin 1895 blued gun in 45/70.  I absolutely suck with blade sights (it happens after 40+ years), so i did replace the stock one with an XS-ring sight and rail.  The optic is a 1-6x Leopold firedot.  I have also replaced the old trigger with the Wild West Guns 'happy trigger'.  The original was ok, but having it flop around just got on my OCD nerves.

Love the kick of the bigger/slower rounds (400gr or more).  The lighter ones (~300 gr) shoot fine, but they just don't feel as nice to my shoulder.  Just did a recent load test on Beartooth Bullets 525gr 'Piledriver' projectile; makes your teeth rattle a bit, but shoot pretty well.  I've also loaded the FTX rounds and haven't had any issues with them, though I really don't use them much.  I figure 405gr lead is more than adequate for anything.  I also cast and powder coat my projectiles, so my shooting costs are pretty low...once you take away the reloading equipment initial cost!

I like levers, always have.  After selling 8 guns to help finance our move to Maine, I now have only 5 levers left; most I've had since the Earths crust cooled.  I've owned three Sav M99s, two in .308 and my pet 250/3000.  I've never sold a Marlin but have sold 2 Win 94s.  I will keep my older M94 "Trapper" 30/30.

Big Al here are some brass framed lever guns we have brought, traded for, swap or sold in the last 50 years. These were the better ones, my father always tried to stay in the NRA Excellent to Fine Condition. About the time he would get something neat that I liked, he sold or traded it for another one he liked.

The upgrading we went through seemed to never stop until he died in 1975. Every nickle he could save was spent on antique weapons or antique housewares used to trade for more weapons.

I'm originally from Maine! One thing I can tell you about Maine is that you want to make sure you have a nice safe. The druggies will rob you and steal every one you have. They've been having drug problems up there for bout fifteen years now. It's still a great state to live. Ten years ago they cleaned me out because I thought my cellar (and my street) was secure. The first thing I bought after that was my safe, and THEN I started replacing my rifles. I have a Marlin 336C converted essentially to a Guide Gun, with a big loop Lever and a Leupold 2 X 7 scope mounted on top. I have a Marlin 45-70 Guide Gun with a big loop lever and the same scope on top. Each has a lot of little extras, like the Wild West trigger-happy kits and knurled thumb bars for the hammers. I have a 1957 Winchester Model 94 in excellent shape. They're all shooters, and will put a bullet inside a 1-inch diamond every time. The Winchester has iron-sights, but the rear sight is a Williams loop and the front is a fiberoptic, so it still stays tight at 100 yards.  I'd like to have these same calibers in Stainless.
BTW, I've used the Hornady Lever Revolutions in my 45-70 from the start, and I've had zero problems with them. That's why those tips are a fairly soft plastic. They're soft so they won't set off the round in front of them. On any other bullet that nose would make it a ballistic round, but on those chubby 45-70 rounds their initial purpose is to keep peace inside the magazine.

I was just outside of Bangor near Newport / Plymouth. What part of Maine did you land in?
