You did very well. I was offered $750.00 for mine, turned it down. I've got a .44-40 EMF Hartford. It is made by Rossi, but EMF slicks them up a bit. Same 24" octagonal barrel. If you can't hit a 3" target with open sights at 100 yards with these rifles it is time to take up knitting. I love the '92, but don't care for the '94 at all. It is too small.

They are lots of fun. It uses the same conical bullets I use for the .44-40. I bought 500 160gr. Great for either. Really inexpensive.

I've had the itch for a marlin in 357 for a while now... As soon as I have the funds that itch will be scratched. I really want a 45 70 to but don't wanna pay for the ammo
