    Jay, Congrats on a great deal on a great little rifle.
    Always wanted one, but like you ain't paying those ungodly prices.
    Stumbled onto an older Puma-Rossi with the 24" SS octagon barrel.
    I'm satisfied and it is a hoot to shoot, and is very accurate.
    Even took a nice little 8 point the first year I had it.
    Enjoy.

    Thanks Randy P! Love to see pics of that Rossi--never seen one with a long barrel.

    You did well! I in no way meant you didn't in case you thought that. I jokingly told my friend with the 357 that I would be GLAD to pay him HALF what it's worth! I seriously asked that if he ever sold it to let me have first rights. Cute little Marlins. BTW I bought a 'some rust and dust' 1884 in 44 mag this past fall for $399 and look forward to cleaning it up and playing/shooting it.
    I wish I had all the Marlins I've had!...(well a few of them anyway).
    -- 66 and still climbing trees to hunt, but a LOT more cautious doing it now!!!.

    No worries! Sometimes trading is the best way to go. Traded a 2008 444 Marlin and around 500 bucks to get a primo 444XLR. The 444XLR is going for a lot more moola these days on GB. I will never find one locally and would have to pay those ridiculous prices.

    Congrats to you Jay! The darn things are addictive, any 357 in a rifle seems to be. Like Randy, I have a Rossi with a 24" Oct. barrel, blued and a 20" round barrel one. Then my 3 1894C's and two H&R single shots that I reamed to 357 Max. Yah, I like em all. I've found my last two 1894s a few years ago, pretty sure I could double my money now but don't wanna let em go. Best get to reloading while the weather sux, they eat like teenagers. DP

    Thanks DP! Feeding my new carbine is a concern for me as well. I have two single stage presses and that is it. I am sure that little carbine will necessitate me buying a turret press.

    When I run low on ammo, I buy Magtec 158 gr JSP, cycles good and shoots good. If ya don't have brass, it's a great way to get some and keep the grin on yer face. It used to be nickel plated, now it's brass. Seems to be good brass for reloading. DP
