Seems to be plenty of demand for leverguns based on the Marlin fiasco, plus Henry just came out with a long range version in 3 calibers.

I have a Rossi, but it's in Miami getting fixed because the lever locked up.

I agree, seems like Henry's are jumping off the shelf as fast as they can produce them.

Ask most guys buying a Rossi or Henry if they'd rather have a Marlin or Winchester... Then ask Winchester and Marlin how much demand there is for their rifles...

The answer to one of the above questions is, "yeah, but they cost too much, or they aren't available." The answer to the other question is, "not enough to keep us in business."

You can suss out which answer goes with which question.

SSBN620GOLD is on a distinguished road
Local shop has a .45-70 Cowboy

Excellent condition. I looked it over. Tang inletting was odd. Edges had a fine wavy edge, like the cutter chattered. I looked up the build date, even though the barrel was marked JM. 2009, one of the transition years. I'm not confident that the new Marlins have come up to QC speed. One fellow in my club had a new 336 last year and the stock was poorly fitted. Do you want to pay good money for a gun which needs work out of the box? Might be good to wait a spell longer.

So you looked at a 7yr old rifle and use that as evidence they still haven't worked out the kinks? um.... ?

If you have a good relationship with your LGS then ask them to keep an eye out for a .357 for you. Got mine locked up an hour after it came in as a trade. It wasn't cheap but it's a great gun. I won't be trading it in.

I also see the 44 mag 1894 at Dicks and in gun shops. They look very good to me, and I probably will own one when the time is right. Could it be the 1894C .357 is a popular cowboy action rifle and the sell as fast as the get to the stores ?

I lucked out finding my Marlin 1894 C .357. I really do not think Marlin makes the 1894 C in .357 Magnum anymore go figure kinda dumb to me the Marlin really is missing some good marketing profits if they started to make the 1894 C in .357 again!!!

I've been waiting a long time to hear that they started these again. Last I heard, probably last year, they were retooling the factory and were going to start production early this year. I haven't heard even one update of this happening so now I'm wondering how true it was.

I don't know why Remington stopped making the 1894 in .357 since there seems to be a high demand for them. I have a JM stamped 1894 Cowboy in .357 that I'll sell for about $20,000. Let me know.

They do still list them on the website, maybe they only make them in small runs at this point, don't know..I do see the 1894 in 44mag/special in gun shops. I've had my eye on one for a while.

Marlin Model 1894C
