    can't afford a Winchester... So likely a Marlin or Rossi

    Looking for blued, not stainless

    If it's a gun mostly for shooting at the range, I'd get the Marlin 1894 Cowboy.
    If it's for the woods, I'd get the 1894 standard carbine.

    A nice set of peep sights would be great on whatever you get too. They work way better than buckhorns for me.

    Oh yeah, towboater is right. I'd consider a Uberti too! Although some of them are in Winchester range as far as price.

    I would buy the Marlin for twice the price of a Rossi. I recently went to buy one of them in .45 Colt, it was a rough-edged turd. I can't imagine polishing it enough to make me happy with it.
    Joke'em, says I.

    Yep, however

    Would consider a Henry but want side loader vs tube loader

    The Uberti is too expensive for a range gun only
