Billybob, your state has some crappy hunting laws!
Yes the hunting laws stink. To off-set those laws, the Carry laws are great.

Marlin's model 336 was introduced in 1948 and was the rival to Winchester's model 94. Marlin's 336 is only found in .35 Remington & .30/30. Marlin's model 1894 is chambered in .357Mag/ .38 Special, .44Mag/.44 Special & .45 Colt.
I'm not sure about some Marlin models having a better quality lever action, that may be true. I've always heard that Marlin's lever actions are of the same quality on all their rifles/models and are a timeless design.

enduring models, such as Models 1891 and 1893. Today known as Models 39 and 336 respectively, they are the oldest shoulder arm designs in the world still being produced.
Marlin's 1895 model is chambered in .45-70 & .450Marlin only.
But, Marlin does now have deluxe & competition models that may have better quality everything.

Marlins current 1895 rifle and 336 are the same design. 1895 and 444 are just "big bore" versions. 1894 is also same basic design. 1895,444,1894 all have Ballard type cut rifleing, 336 all have microgrove.

wolfdog,

Do you know of any Marlin rifles including the competition series having a better lever action?

The reason I ask is because, the model that Annie Oakley used in her trick shooting events is the the same model 39 that is available today. But of course the model 39 has been refined and the aesthetics modernized since 1870.

Have never had anything to do with Marlins competion or delux models. Put on a decent reciever or tang sight and find the right ammo and ever one I have messed with would outshoot me. The biggest thing is finding the ammo the gun likes. Most rimfires will have a load they like better than others. As to Anne Oakley and her trick shooting from what I understand it was mostly that, i.e. trick shooting. She shot glass balls, just about like Christmas oranments with smooth bore and shot shells, just one pellet hitting the ball made for impressive breakage.

I remember buying a 44 marlin in the early 80s at Kmart for a 110 dollars,sold it a few years later for about 150,wished I would have kept that one.

I know your pain, some years ago I ran into a deal on one in 41 mag, and passed because I didn't have any experiance with the 41. Then I got my model 57 and found out how sweet 41 mag is.
