i like the looks of the winchester and it would be worth more money because they dont make them anymore but marlins traditional and you could get more parts for them if they break

Marlin 39 (all variants) are as good as you can get. Winnie is good, too, but nothing beats a 39.

I love my Winchesters. That being said, a good friend of mine has the Marlin 39a with a 1" variable scope on it, and all I can say is "WOW"!

I would vote for the Marlin,they are a great gun. Don't leave out the Henry,they also make a nice lever action rimfire,but they are a little small for me,along with the Browning.
Winchesters are a good gun,but since they were discontinued prices have gone through the roof.

Henry H001T. Accurate, reasonable, good company backup.

IMHO, the Marlin Model 60 is hard to beat for accuracy. It was the first gun I ever bought some 30 yrs ago. I now have a BSA 3x9-40 scope mounted on it (yeah, I know. Cheap, but it works just fine) and it punches the crosshairs on targets at 50 yards regularly. I also have a 9422 - not bad for a lever action. Not as accurate as the Model 60 (same cheap scope) but then the barrel is shorter. Smoothest action I've ever seen on a lever action. The Henry H001 is probably a good choice also. I have a Big Boy chambered for .44 REM Mag that is a spike driver - too big for a tack driver - even with open sights. Nice smooth action, too. I imagine someday I'll have to have one of the Henry .22's. Saw one in a local WalMart for around $270 not too long ago. Almost bought it but my wife caught me :-)

I don't think you can go wrong with any of these manufacturers. Pick the one you like the looks of and have fun.

I think it's hard to beat a rifle that been in continuous production, with very few changes for over 100 years...... if memory serves.

Marlin 39A....... I have a Winchester 9422, but I have 3 Marlin 39A's

Don't forget that Annie Oakley used an 1897 which is essentially a 39A.
