    Anyone have one? How's this for a handy little lever-action rifle. I love mine. Can shoot .38 Spl bulk ammo in it and makes for a good home defense gun too if need be.

    No, but I'd really like one.

    I wonder why Marlin doesn't make more of them. They'd sell.

    I'm hoping to get something like this as soon as I complete my googling.

    I don't have one, but I've shot one, and loved it.

    Another option is an Uberti. Shot one of those, but it was less smooth than the Marlin, IMO.

    I have an early one without the crossbolt safety and rebounding hammer. I also have its big brother in 44 magnum.

    Love them both and would NEVER get rid of them. Fairly accurate, totally reliable and sweet shooting guns, period.

    I'd ditch alot of other rifles in the safe before getting rid of the 357 or 44 mag Marlins!

    Contratulations!

    Yep, I got one. Also have the 44mag stainless and the 30-30 - all Marlins. Most favorite to shoot seems to be the one I have in hand at the time.

    I've got one. Added XS ghost rings and LOVE it. Light, easy to handle, and accurate. One of my favorite rifles.
