For some reason, Marlin has reduced the number of 25 Win Mag magazine style guns for 2008. Currently there are only three that they make, two 982's and a 925. I wonder why they seem to be cutting back on the magazine style rifles and adding to the tubular style?If it were up to me, I'd go with the 925M.
I'm not real big on the tubular magazines... They take too long to reload.
Plus, it's hard to tell when you're out of ammo. With a regular magazine, you can just pop it out and check.
That's my two cents.
^.^ I dunno anything about the guns themselves, just the general pros and cons of the two from a glance.
