Default Lever .357/.38 special

I'm lookin into this gun and really like it.. Don't have a lever yet so it would be perfect for the collection and ammo isn't to bad.. My question is tho should I go marlin or Henry? I'm leaning toward to Henry just cuz... Well it's Henry!!! Local shop said he had a marlin used at 470.. Good price? Said its good shape just haven't looked myself.. Ohh an got a quote for the Henry brand new at 760... Another good price? Donot know any value on these rifles... Thanks ahead of time!

I assume you are talking about a marlin 1894 variant. Without more info on the exact model it is tough to give you a price range but it sounds like its in the area if the gun is in perfect condition.
If the Henry is a big boy (again need more info) I would say the price is a bit high. But not too bad.

Yea it is a 1894... And the other one is a big boy... Gotta get more prices from other shops then... The place I usually go to that knows me said he doesn't deal Henry rifles... Idk why the hell he doesn't but his loss then.

Another shop can't get a Henry... And one more by my house had a marlin 1894 brand new for 540... Still seems a little high for a marlin... Only reason I'm leaning toward the marlin now is that they are much easier to get a hold of... One guy today told me Henry said to him and handgun cartridge rifle will take anywhere from 30 days to 6 months!!!!

Woowwwww just found a shop that had the marlin in new for 690!!!! They are crazy!!!

Dicks can order it for 530 NIB so unless this used one is really nice I might just have to go to dicks...

Doesn't anyone know if marlin is backed up? I know Remington owns them so hoping they aren't to busy with the new military contract...

Like waiting forever to get a new one from the factory.. I'll put pics up when I get the gun next week...

I think you will love the marlin. I bought mine used and I have only shot it twice. First shot was a 1/4" right of bullseye second was through the exact same hole.
