  1. Has Marlin's quality improved?

    The 45/70 Govt.
    I am looking to get my first 45/70 and I'm also wanting to get a gun that's very reliable since I'm hard on some of my guns. I was looking at the Henry All-Weather and the Marlin 1895 SBL. My question to you all is, has Marlin's quality improved? I know for a while they were having issues, but...
  2. Need help finding a new toy

    Henry Levers
    New to this forum as a member always lingered as a guest and read up on everything I've wanted or needed to know slowly fueling my "need" for a lever gun. I caught the lever bug awhile back and bought a squirrel/rabbit/coon gun (Henry 22, frontier model) and have rained led on to many tree rats...
  3. Decision time: Marlin 1894 .357 pre-safety, mint or Uberti 1873 .357 mint or Henry

    Cowboy Rifles
    I was at the gun show this afternoon and almost pulled the trigger on the Marlin described above but I'm also considering a new Henry & a used, mint Uberti. The Henry seems like quite a nice rifle for the money and I've heard some negatives about Marlin microgroove rifling in pistol...
  4. NEW Marlin 336C vs Henry .30-30

    First post here, so I hope I'm in the right place. Only firearm I own is a Remington 770 in 30-06 (purchased in 2010), but have military experience, so have fired a variety of firearms and rounds, but no expert by any means. After a couple years, I realize a 30-06 is a little OP for CA...

    Henry Levers
    Wanted to share a few pix of my new acquisition - a Henry Golden Boy .22LR. I had one of these babies on order for two and a half weeks from a store in Kentucky who was taking forever to process my order - their price was $429.99. I was getting impatient, especially when I saw one on the rack...

  7. New Henry Frontier 22 lr

    Henry Levers
    Well, I was wanting another lever action but couldn't decide if I wanted another centerfire or a rimfire lever. I actually wanted both but can only afford one at a time. I bought a 336W back in November that I am happy with and that I broke in with a small whitetail buck a few weeks ago. When I...
