I have a problem. This week I bought a Winchester 94 Ranger Compact in 357 for my daughter. After toting this new rifle around all day marking landlines before a timbercutting, my Marlin 1894SS feels like a ponderous chunk. My 336CS 30/30 with Williams Peep feels like a clumsy chunk 'o' pulpwood. Handling my Marlin 444SS, is like shouldering a piece of field artillery. What can I do? I have always owned Marlins, but this little Ranger Compact is beauteeful!
