The Marlin Guide Gun
Need a hard-hitting brush gun capable of taking any game in North America? Well the Marlin Guide Gun could be the answer to those needs.
The brush gun has long been defined as a handy rifle with a large heavy bullet. Usually lever-actions, hinge-breaks, or short action carbines, these guns are chambered in rounds like .30-.30, .300 Savage, and .35 Remington. While suitable for white tail, wolves, and small bear, these rounds are a little light when chasing elk and grizzly. To fix this, Marlin came out with the M1895G Guide Gun. Capable of firing a 300-grain .45 caliber JHP bullet at 2,275 ft/s, yet still about the same size as your classic .30-.30, it is a game changer.
