anybody have any experience with these? I'm thinking of getting one for silhouette shooting.
thanks for the tip. apparently shooting .38 out of one will leave a lead/carbon ring ,but it can be cleaned up. i want the option of using either cal. ammo so i will go with the .357/.38sp.i saw 2 new 1894's in 357 for sale at gander mountain sporting goods in Holland Ohio last week. if you want to shoot 38 special get a 1894 CB in 38 special. check out marlin owners .com for more info about shooting 38 special in the 357 1894's. i have one made in 1980 with a micro groove barrel not a Ballard cut one,. I've shot 38 special in it but i don't make a habit out of it.
well AH ,i just decided i wanted a cowboy setup so..here goes ! BTW i think ive got the home defense weapon angle covered!:09:billy I can't picture you with a lever gun because of the other type firearms you own. BUT I think you'll love a Marlin 357 lever rifle.
You'll enjoy the fit and comfort of shouldering it, the lite weight and it would be an excellent home defense weapon considering the amount of ammo it holds.
I personal love marlin leveraction rifles I have owned 3 or 4 over the years.
Go for it, I don't think you'll regret buying one. ...A.H
yes i have and i dont want to pay for the ammo.i can get factory loaded .38 for 12cts. a pop at the local gunstore. im doin this cheap and ive already got a .357/.38 peashooter that i need a holster for.Hey billy have you looked into the 44mag Marlin ??? ...A.H
