I found a blued 1894 Marlin in 44 mag today, it's a used Remlin.
Looks pretty good fit and finish.
The action is stiff and the trigger has to break at close to 10 lbs.!
The price is $525 no negotiation.
That gun store does have a warranty that if the gun is broken
or fails to work properly they will either fix it or replace it.

Still shooting it with that trigger is just not what I would want and
we have no gunsmith around here that work on them.

I really want a stainless, although I've been told it's better to get
a 44 mag and reload that than load a 45 Colt to max.

I'm guessing the 44 Mag will shoot flatter as well.

My wife thinks I should get a Rossi 92 for the same money and
it's in stainless.

Any suggestions?

Depends on the condition of the Remlin, fit of wood and metal, machining, absence of receiver cracks, etc.

Do a web search. This will correct the trigger pull. These can be had for around 80.00. Installation is drop in and about 10-20 minutes. Installation videos are available on the net.

Your choice of the blue Marlin or the SS Rossi. The Rossi is a reasonable rifle, except for the "safety", which is a terrible design, and an eyesore.

In our Gunsmithing section you can find a fix for the trigger. Many members have done it and report Excellent results.

Thanks I'm not sure why I missed my own thread.
I have to decide whether or not to buy that Remlin and I think I will pass on it.
I'm more of a stainless guy.
Not sure on the Rossi 92 but would have to order one.

44 Mag vs 45 Long Colt 16" barrel vs 20" barrel or wait until I find a decently
priced JM Marlin.
