I'd love to find a 1894 in .41 magnum of any production model. All the ones I see would need a mortgage to buy them.

I don't have enough Marlins to start pursuing specific years...not a bad idea. I suppose if you are going to buy on the internet, you may as well make it a challenge.

I enjoy looking for them in the wild. I buy what I find.

Gentlemen

In reading the above I think I should let you know that I am listing some nice Marlins on GB.

These rifles are from LGS owners personal stash that he has accumulated over the years.

Among the rifles are 219 zipper, 25-20,
30-30,357,410, 22mag, 32-20,44.

Just a heads up.

I had a 219 Zipper for a while and should have kept it.

Been looking for what I call my "creek gun" over the past few years, wasn't sure what I was looking for. A favorite pastime of mine is wandering the creek that borders my property and I usually carry an old h and r single shot in 22 hornet. I like looking for old marlin levers and was poking around the local pawn shop when I found a marlin 25 MB in 22 magnum. It cleaned up pretty good, stock is kinda rough but can be fixed. Put a 4x scope on it today and was able to consistently hit golf balls at 50 yards, plenty good for me. Think I found me a new creek gun.

Levermatic, model 62, .30 carbine.

I need it for the trifecta - already have an M1 carbine, and a Ruger Blackhawk in .30 carbine.

Wouldn't mind adding a JM SBL to the collection.


Don't ask me about my military service or heroic acts...most of it is untrue.

Can't remember if I was looking for it when I found it. I had previously had a couple of nice old 336 models. A '76 RC model and a really nice '67 Texan. And had been looking at the 336Y as a more compact version. But my little 30TK is "the one". It's pretty plain jane other than it's perfect configuration. And it's diminutive size and weight, achieved with Texan stock, 3/4 magazine, and 18.5" barrel, serves double duty by curing my itch for both a compact 30-30 and 1894c 357.

Had been wanting a 22 Mag for years when I picked up a nice 783. It's also "the one"...until I might find a smaller, lighter 22 mag for my "creek gun".
And my near lifelong companion 39M is also "the one".

If I ran across a deal on an original configuration 22" 1895, or the Cowboy model with 24" octagon barrel, I wouldn't mind having a 45-70. Or the 410. But they'd never be "the one" like the other three are.

I’d like to find two!
Model 782 bolt action .22WMR
JM Model 1894C .357 Microgroove

If I ever happen across JM levers at reasonable price in .22s/l/lr, .22 WMR or .30-30, Id grab em...

There is one for sale on Texas Gun Trader right now, but the guy is asking $1,500.
