Oh dont get me wrong. im a 94 winnie freak supreme! BUT ! I love Marlins. and SAVAGE 99!!! guess im lucky!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.
