Or is it? New guy here, and I hope you can help.
I walked in to my local range to shoot and they had just taken in a Winchester 94 on consignment. It is chambered in 30-30 and serial number indicates 1972 manufacture. I know that isn't a prime year, but the owner only wanted $349, and it is (no kidding) pristine. If it has ever even been loaded it doesn't show.

I grabbed it. So - good deal or no?

Thanks!

OOOh. Marlins! :thumbsup:

They are not name famous like Winchester but in my lowly opinion they are a better designed rifle. With the side ejection of the spent case mounting a scope is easier to get center line of the barrel.

Oh, now you've gone and done it.

The Marlin fanboys claim it's better, because it's a more sealed action.
The Winchester fanboys claim it's better, because it's easier to clear problems.

Then the Savage 99 fanboys chime in about weak actions for modern calibers.

Then the Browning gearhead fanboys shout about most modern.

Who never owned a lever action and not even Ruger himself could sell a new one into the market.

So here's the thing on the post '64 Winchesters...They work, and work just as well as a pre-64; they're just not as pretty. I would have a hard time walking away from that deal.
