Marlin makes a nice 35 rem. Great deer gun out to 150 yrds top, no big recoil either.
Thats what I Have

I shot a few older Marlins and Winchesters, been checking them out at shops lately and the newer rifles have a different feel. Cheaper? Not sure, I just don't think they feel as nice as the older ones.

Sad..remember in the 90's you could buy a marlin or winchester lever 30-30 for 199 when they were on sale from around 229 normal list. Quality goes down price goes up.Always figured they'd be inexpensive cause their price never moved for years.. I've always said a man needs a 30-30 in his safe for fun and to hand down to his son or daughter. Now that I don't have one anymore I kick myself with my 11yo starting to rifle hunt.
Lesson I learned the hardway..When you get this rifle or other guns hang on to them. Over the years I have sold/traded/gave away/lost in divorce, several I'd love to have back.. Winchester pre 64 30-30, Remington semi 16 ga (Manufactured in the 40's). Remington 742 .308, S&W 686, S&W model 10, older 30-30 can't remember manufacturer bolt action beautiful blonde stock on it bought it for 40 bucks traded it and got 50 on the trade, little .25 cal pistol bought for $40 [wallmad][wallmad] Oh well I am thankful for the ones I still have and look forward to getting in the future.

You just missed the Harrisburg Gunshow Angel. It was this pasy weekend. You could have definetly found what you were looking for.

The hard part would have been just buying what you went there for.

[hihi]

I'm in trouble. Little does my wife know that the gun locker she bought me has been over-stuffed since the day she bought it. I have shotguns and rifles stashed all over[ko]
"Huh? ....that's not new, I bought that about 6 years ago....waaaaaay before we got married!"
She asked me what I wanted for Christmas and I said I need a gun safe. She said "What about that locker I bought you?" ....uh We NEED a safe ......it's safer[lol]

Miles, not ready for a .444 just yet. I'm a small guy and plan on shooting it a lot.
Look for an older marlin in .44 mag. Leverevolution ammo is available in .44 mag for hunting. Being it shoots both .44 special and .44 mag it's cheap to shoot compared to the other calibers, exception .357 mag so you can get a lot of trigger time and not break the bank.
