I love mine. Sweet little shooter. With the leverevolution rounds from Hornady it really comes alive. Mine is a newer one, bought new in 2007, but my dad has an older one and they're both deadly accurate. I use mine whistle pig hunting sometimes. Loads of fun. You'll enjoy it.
You probably mean the Winchester '94. I've never shot one, but I hear the newer ones the quality kinda went down. Don't know for sure on that. The Winchester's had a top ejector, were the marlin's eject out the side. Makes it a lot easier if you wanna mount a scope.
