I picked up a beautiful 1977 44 mag from Cabelas tonight. I've got 3 other 94's, but this is the first one without the cross-bolt safety. I noticed two other things that are different -- the extractor and ejector seem a lot flimsier. The ejector is a single piece of spring steel. I don't know how to describe the extractor, other to say that it seems a lot weaker than the current version. Does anyone know when Marlin redesigned these parts? Thanks.
