I think I'd take an old beat up 94 over just about any Marlin. There's just something about it that other guns don't have. I've wanted one for a while, never wanted to spend the money for one though. I can't even begin to count how many I held over the years urging myself to just buy it. This one just happened to fall into my hands. There is a little marring to the blue, looks like something acidic was splashed on it at some point in the past, but it's just a cosmetic blemish nothing more. I'm from the line of thinking that you don't buy a classic muscle car and trailer it to and from shows, you drive those beasts like you stole'em. I think of my guns the same way, I have no need for safe queens. I want something I can shoot and enjoy.
Also, if you look closely at the first picture, you can see the screw on the underside that was removed in the post 64 guns.
