I'm new to the forum and am thrilled to see all of the Marlin owners active here. I have 4 Marlins, all JM stamped, pre-crossbolt safety models, & am always interested in the right JM (I'm ok w/ crossbolt safeties, just don't have one). I have the following:
Golden 39M Mountie from 1975 (Christmas gift from my Dad)
1894 .357/38 from 1981
336RC from 1950, unmolested waffle top
444 from 1974
I'm researching all I can about reloading since I purchased the 444 last Sunday and plan to get started with that as soon as I'm comfortable with the information I've gathered.
Edit: thought I should add a pic or two of my waffle top
