Default Winchester 94 .30-30 or Henry .30-30?

I'm interested in buying a new Winchester model 94 .30-30. I've always liked the lever action repeaters and like the traditional look of the Winchester but have also been considering the Henry .30-30.
Anyone have an opinion as to which is the better of the two? I'll be buying new so keep that in mind.

thanks in advance,

I'd go with the Winchester. - The Henrys don't look quite right to me, and I know for a fact that the Winchester holds its value better.

Having said that, Henry owners comment about the smooth action.

Winchester. Don't know if anythings different on the new ones, but I have one that was made in 1897 and it still shoots as good as any of my new guns

Why complicate things, buy some of each, thats what i did.... . I have a soft spot for 30-30 lever guns, starting to get a little out of hand. Seems like the Marlins start out a little tight/rough, but get about 200rnds thru them, smooth as silk.

appearance wise, i am partial to the Winchester M94. the Marlin 336 seems to have a beefier action though and is more easily scoped than the earlier Winchesters. the Henry's seem to be very solid and the action is danged smooth.

IMO, any of them would be a good choice.

Mine is so much newer than yours, 1898. Lol
