I have always loved lever guns. My first hunting rifle was a Savage model 99 in .300 Savage. Unfortunately I lost it in a house fire. I recently decided it was time to find another lever action. Now that I live in Texas, as I grew up in SE New Mexico, there are a lot more trees so I decided on a Marlin in 44 magnum. I originally wanted one in .357 but after 6 months of searching couldn't find one. I found a retired police officer willing to pay with his like new 44 and have him $600 for it. LOVE IT!!!

Thank you all for making me welcome. Marlinluvr the only pictures I have currently are from the night I bought it, but I'll post a few, if I can figure out how to do that from my phone. Let me know what you think.

Thanks Papajohnabi! I venture through your kneck of the woods from time to time on my way to San Antonio. It's a much better view them driving I-35.

Thanks, horseshoe. It was a sweet shooter and had been given to be in my grandfather's will. I've looked at a few recently at some gun shows, but people are real proud of them today.

T-Bone, I need to start reloading. It seems from what I've read you don't truly tap the potential of the 44 magnum unless you do.

LAGun, I hope all is well in Houston.

John, next time I'm headed down your way I'll give you a shout in advance and we'll get that coffee.
