Was in the Daly City Big 5 today (7/21/07) when I noticed the return of the 45 Colt Marlin leverguns, $379.99 sale price.:)

These guns have been out of circulation for the past two or three years. Last time Big 5 carreid them they were $299.

By all means, indulge :)

45 Colt leverguns are great fun

What's the barrel length? I'm kinda partial to the short ones. They make great HD rifles - and they don't have the evil/scary look of an AR style rifle.

They have a 20" round barrel with hardwood stocks.

I just did the paperwork on one in Capitola, but dig this–I had to call Big 5's corporate office to have them call the manager to authorize him to remove the plastic tie securing the lever just so I could inspect the action and the barrel! :mad:

I guess their SOP to check to see if it's loaded is to pull the trigger! :eek:

Anyway, if you want one in .45 Colt with the round barrel (Marlin's cataloged 1894 is the Cowboy Model with the octagon barrel) these rifles are a limited run for Big 5.
