    I think Steve at Alaska Custom Firearms or Wild West Guns, both of whom have banner adds on top of this forum could do it.
    I love my ported Guide Gun in 450 Marlin.
    Vance in AK.

    Magnaport would be a good one for the 1895 Marlin. It would eliminate some of the muzzle jump and reduce some of the felt recoil. Some of those ports really increase muzzle blast. So don't suffer hearing loss for less recoil.

    I'd trust Steve (mentioned above) or Stan Jackson locally; either one does real good work.

    If you are gonna ship it down south - Magnaport is the way to go.

    Since it looks like you are down in Colorado, give Rich Wyatt a call over at Gunsmoke in Wheat Ridge. We have ported thousands of Marlins, but since shipping up and back is $70 or so, unless you are doing other marlin mods, it makes sense to try to do it locally.
