OK. So, recently I decided that I absolutely cannot buy any more guns or gun related items until I own the Marlin 1894c that I've wanted for years, but for some reason never bought. What I've found is that the new Marlins are not as nice as the old Marlins(at least as far as the furniture and finishes go) and the old, pre-Remington Marlins are pricey and hard to find. So...I'm looking for a potential alternative. I'm wondering if I'm missing another rifle with tidy dimensions and classic lines that will do what I want. Mainly, shoot paper and cans with .38s and be a classic that I'll be happy to hand down to one of my kids or grandkids some day. Below is a pic of what I'm looking for, basically.(I know, this one's not a .357, but you see what I'm looking for) If the Marlin didn't exist, where would you go for the next best thing?(or better than the Marlin, maybe? ) Thanks, y'all! Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
