    Well the only reason for that is its brain was not much bigger than a golfball ! ! !

    No, it's only because the 45-70 wasn't invented yet.

    I'd rather have one in 460 XVR ... it would be my dream pistol/levergun combo. Heck, I'd run through polar bear country naked except for wrapped in bacon if I had that combo with me at the time.

    How cool is that Eli! It made me read all the way to the bottom ... but, in honor of Davy Jones, I'm a believer.

    9) 1894 Conversion Cartridges
    Left to right: 44 Magnum and 454 Casull (for comparison); 41 M
    3 (McPherson Marlin Maximum), 44 M3, 458 M3, 480 Ruger (fires in 475 Linebaugh conversion rifle), 475 Linebaugh, 475 M3, 50 AE, and 50 M3. From left to right, these represent a few of the feasible conversion chamberings for the 1894 Marlin. (Note that bullets used in some of these mocked up prototypes are wholly inappropriate, longer cast bullets would be superior choices for some.)

    McPherson has forgotten more about Marlin guns than most folks will ever know. He also literally wrote the book on Accurizing the Factory Rifle. He's included in a class of elite shooters and smiths. You'd enjoy reading his other writings on his site.

    Incorrect. I owned one and it was junk that wouldn't feed. You can also look up a Gunblast report on it.

    Yes I would be interested in that as well. To my knowledge Marlin never released a .480 for production.
