Hey all......
While those who know me know that I love my Marlins.
But....recently my Winchester 94's are getting the nod.

I have a few with 2 nice pre 64 in 30/30 as well as 32spl.

Recently I aquired something you do not usually see me pay interest to.......
A 1977 pre safety 94 in 30/30.

Fellas.....there is not so much as a scratch on this Gal.
I put a Williams peep on her as well as a rear sight blank.

Now I'm here to tell you that this rifle is impressing the begeezes outta me.

It cycles with a pinky and is silky smooth.Smoother than my expensive gun's.
And shoot!!?
I was swinging the 8" gong free hand with every shot at 70 yards on my range.The barrel was too hot to touch,but the point of aim stayed true.
She is a joy to carry.........points like a charm .....and will not be leaving my stable.
For grins I took a quick photo while clearing her throat yesterday.
Pic will be up in a moment.

I got rid of two pre-64 Winnie 94s in 32 Win SPL but kept a 1943 model. Winnies are nice but they come in second to my Marlins. I recently saw a 1952 Winnie Mod 64 32 Win SPL and have that put aside for me at the LGS. I will probably NEVER see another Mod 64 in person during my lifetime.

Nice wood on that one also. I like the variation in the grain. Reality is that the post 64 Winchesters were/are still miles above all the Remlins and very comparable to many of the JM's.

Sorry guys, but I think the winchester rifles are a little more classic than the marlins. And I own 2 marlins plus a winchester 94. Not an old one, but a beautiful rifle, 1980's vintage in 99% condition. And it will be passed on to my kids and hopefully to there's. And I also won't get rid of my marlins either. Those will be passed on as well.

If and I say If I were to ever buy another lever gun besides a Savage or Marlin it would be a Browning '92 44 SRC.
