    Just like to ask if anyone has bought a marlin 1894 lever action rifle from PBdionisio? I called them up last monday and asked about it and they told me that the rifle is at 64K for the 44 mag and 63K for the 357Mag.

    This would be a nice Homedefense rifle. Any thoughts on this?

    They are in the Philippines and the currency is Pesos. PHP64,000.00 is USD1337.00. Still too much for a lever action rifle. I'll buy me a used AR, I heard they go down in price after election.

    They must me dreaming of their prices. It would be nice if the 30-30 caliber would be widely available in the Philippines. Ballistics is almost similar to the 7.62x39. Hornady has the 30-30 in LEVERevolution, and the ballistics are impressive:

    I would love to get a .357 mag lever gun. Too bad they priced it too high. Now if Norinco will release a decently priced .357 lever :whistling:

    They do have a lever action .22 and a lever action shotgun. They also have copies of the trench gun.

    Ask the BI boys, they will lead you to the right path.

    ETA - Check the Buy and Sale Q2 2009 thread, someone is selling AR parts.

    You can look at it that way- parang mahal nga. But compare the price to many pistols we have here, parang OK na rin- after all, you are getting a rifle. Still, they can sell more of these babies if they can slash the prices. I might consider one if it were just Php40K+.

    I wonder if you can shoot 38 Specials on the 357Mag model.

    I believe that you can shoot .38 Special on a .357 mag lever action.

    .357 mag Marlins cost around $700.00 here. The 30-30s cost around $430.00. Much cheaper in the US.

    Looks promising. How fast can the tubular magazine be reloaded when it is out of ammo?

    You do not need to wait until you run out of ammo. You can start reloading if there's a lapse during shooting.

    To answer the question much slower than loading a magazine but as long as you have ammo around you, you can always top it off.

    My lever guns.
    Winchester 94 in 30-30 on top and Marlin 357 at the bottom.

    Thanks for the clarification. I was able to find some videos on Youtube that showed how these babies work. Very nice. Looks like another piece to add to my wish list.
