    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.

    Nice!!! I think they got there trust in many people (at least in me) since Remington owns them now.

    My dicks store in NY has 30-30 for 14.99 Remington... Look at this site..
    http://palmettostatearmory.com/index.php/ammunition/rifle-ammunition/30-30.html

    What I do with my 30-06 is shoot the cheap paruvian boxes.. Blue ones.. Just to sight in and practice... Then switch to the ammo u will hunt with when u wanna fine tune...

    I have hornday 165gr super performance for deer and that stuff is 30$ a box!!! I sure as hell ain't shooting that to plink with!!

    Not many other hunting calibers are much cheaper than that... Even 223 is hunting rounds are getting to 12 a box of 20..

    My friend has the 30-30 and I shot it a few times... Nice accurate gun.

    I will say I read that the triggers are horrible so my first mod will be a new trigger...
