As promised, here are my two Marlins. The first one is a 1974 336 in thudy-thudy. I purchased it used with a nice Tasco Japan 4X, which I've since removed. The second one shows my Marlin 1894c in 38/357 with my Ruger Blackhawk in the same caliber.

My favorite is Savage 99's. Like the style, fit, and balance.

Do have a lot of fun with Marlin 94c 357 and 1895c in 45-70 though. Both of those JM marked Marlins are fun to shoot.

I have a .444 Marlin lever gun. Besides being hard to find factory ammunition for, it's a great gun. Have had it since 1991.

No pictures to post but I won a Remlin 30/30 model 336 that had a barrel that was mounted out of alignment. I was sent a replacement rifle which has taken several wild pigs. My eye being a bit older models, I have put a bottom end Leupold 3-9X Rifleman scope on it.

Shoots good enough for pigs out to 100yds which is plenty good for my favorite pig hunting area.

I have several older versions in various calibers. Nothing fancy but good solid workhorses once they are dialed in. dependable and not the lightest lever action but then they went where the cowboy went adn was what he could afford most of the time.

I love lever guns and have a few.
Marlin 336 made in 1949.
Marlin 336 ADL (deluxe model) made in 1949.
Marlin 336 made in 1966.
Marlin 1894c in .357 from 1982.
Marlin 1884 in .44 mag from 1978.
All are JM stamped and sans cross bolt safety.

Winchester 94 in 30WCF from 1948.
Henry Big Boy in .44 mag.

I may have a problem.

I'm looking at a used Marlin 1894 in 44 magnum. It is a newer one of Remington manufacture. Were there good and bad years for a Remlin? Anything to watch out for?

Here's a nice little range review someone from California posted on Castboolits forum. He purchased one of the newer Marlin/Remlin 1894C in .357 Mag.

The new production sounds very promising.

Here's my 2013 Remlin in .30-30. It's very accurate and has been 100% reliable. Loves LeverEvolution FTX ammo, but does pretty darned well with most other rounds too.

I had a Remlin made in 2012 or early 2013. The wood quality and fit to metal was not very good but it functioned flawlessly and was plenty accurate. My hand loads using LeverEvolution powder with some blemished bullets beat all other hand loads and store bought ammo. But I never tired store bought LeverEvolution ammo. I sold it because I later bought several JM Marlins.

I keep seeing references to these new 357s. I'm going to have to buy one, dangitt...the only problem is where...

All my local shops charge 100 or more to receive, plus tax and DROS. And I'm a cheap a!

Jim @ Shoberg Gunworks in Ukiah charges $25 DROS + $25 FFL Fee + Tax if you buy it elsewhere and no FFL Fee if you buy it through him.
