    I have a 1895 that I have had for 20 years. I've shot a number of hogs with it and it has always put them down. Where I hunt hogs a 150 yard shot would be a very long one. I've been very happy with it. I've had no experience with the GBL.

        I some time use my Marlin 1894-P 44Mag for Hogs with No Problem @ 75Yd with Hornady Flex tip Ammo.
        The 1895 or 1895/GBL will do you just fine.

          I like the longer barrel 1895 better. I had the 1895M in .450mag and it is a sweet gun. Tons of power.
          I put a receiver peep sight on mine and used it without the insert - just the ring.

            A Marlin 336 in either .30-30 Win or .35 Rem is adequate for pigs.
            If you just "want" a 1895, make no mistake, it will handle piglets, too!
            Without a doubt!
            Where I hunt "for" pigs, a rifle needs to be short, lever or semiauto, iron sites and sufficient caliber.

              Love my marlin 45-70 gov. Dropped a pissed off and charging nearly 300 pound pig in its tracks just last year.
