Marlin 1895 Deluxe 26 inch 45-90 Year 1900

Dear all,

may i ask for some technical help:

A shooting buddy offered this 1895 to me.

I tried to circle a dummy round and the owner said that for getting this long round into the loading gate i have to slightly open the lever otherwise the round won t slide into the loading gate completely. Which was true .

With the lever slightly opened it worked well and the round was then without problems ejected as well.

Is it true that for max OAL rounds the lever has to be open a bit?? I am confused...

What is the correct OAL for this 1895?

Have been all 1895 in this period been case colour hardened? Because this receiver is blued..

In another tread from me regarding this 1895 Deluxe you can see pictures and additional questions, it would be great if you could help me here as well.

Thanks for your help
