Oh, engraving!
My Deluxe 1895 has some too + some gold and fancy wood.

You will get used to the scratches and the game will never see it.

Loggah - that's an interesting 71 conversion. Quite unique.

What is on the end of the tube mag ? Some sort of sleeve?

I believe its just a sleeve that fits over the magazine tube to add weight to the front of the rifle. The barrel bored to 45 cal. is pretty light and i think the added weight is to help keep the muzzle down when firing.

I got onto the 1/2 and 1/2 thing looking at Roosevelt’s lever guns. I emailed McGowen some questions. I’ll see what they have to say and maybe give them a call.



Played with on old Savage 99 with a full tapered octagon bbl today. Was pretty damn cool.

I find the 95 (have two) to be a awkward rifle to pack one handed as it balances at the magazine..
The only 95 I have seen that is balances in front of the magazine is the long barreled .303 Brit..

Pass the 86 thank you..


It's a great life if you don't weaken..

mmm, I have hunted a bit with my 1895 .405 and had no problem toting it about.
what calibers are your 1895s?

30-06 and 405 TD both Miroku's..
Four 86's, two Miroku's & two originals..
[bleep] load of Win 94's, in 30-30, 32 Sp. .375 Win. & 38-55..
One 55 TD
Bunch of 92's/53's all Miroku
Same goes for Marlins, 95, 336's, & 94's..
One BLR..
Got to thinking this morning, as ugly as they are I would take a BLR hunting over a 1895 Win. any day..
To my way of thinking the only advantage the lever action and single shot has over a bolt action is packability..
If you like your 1895 Win's that's great..
I don't care for them myself and if the OP is going to rebarrel he might want to add barrel weight via length and or dia. so the rifle balances in front of the magazine..
Or like you he might not care..
I should add that I imported my 405 based on your posts/threads over at Accurate Reloading a number of years ago..
On the meantime while waiting for the 405 I bought the 30-06 (95) used online..
Was sorely disappointed that neither one of them would balance in front of the magazine and as a result haven't shot either one of them..


It's a great life if you don't weaken..

Nrut, If you have unfired Miroku 1895 rifles, you should be able to sell them without taking a loss. I can certainly understand not using a rifle with which you are not satisfied.

You should not miss them as you seem to have many more to shoot.

PS It just occurred to me that the balance could be moved forward with a device similar to the one on the M71 in a previous post by Loggah.

MM, have you found a donor rifle yet? I have a new production Winchester in 30/06 I would part with. Good sound rifle. Someone had stripped the shiny finish off wood and give it an oil finish. Doesn’t look bad. But they did sand over the checkering just a little. Yes it has the tang safety.

No sir. I have a Sako Finnbear for sale. When I move that I'll have some room for an 1895!

Very much appreciate the offer! Fairly firm in my irrational desire for a non-tang saftey rifle though.
