Gday Guru's,

I am in the market for a new .22 lever action.

I have recently fallen in love with the Marlin .22 lever actions and want a good one. What is currently available from the Marlin stables / what models from recent years would be good to look out for?

I watched a good video of Hickok45 on youtube playing with a nice Marlin 1897 Cowboy .22 with skinner sights <http://www.youtube.com/user/hickok45#p/search/3/uxlTDv3hVG8> and am looking for a similar setup.

Cheers from Australia fellas.

Andrew

They are all good, but read the articles on Wisners extractors before your purchase and if yours has a stamped steel aka "bent paper clip" in it replace it with the Wisners. Failure to fire problems arise in the new rebound hammer models not all of them but a few and we have fixes posted in the above stickies to cure them problems also.

Getting an older one is nice, getting a Mountie is real nice, good luck they are all good.
