Found a Marlin JM 1894 in 44 mag made in 1977 it comes with micro rifling . Is that bad for 44 magnum shooting jacketed bullets ? I hand load so I can shoot cast bullets . Also is $460 bucks a good price for a used rifle that been kept in good shape.

300 BP

Condition ? $460 is very good price

Was it rode hard ? Put away wet ?

This '77 will have the old style ejector.....

Always good to have a spare.......Numrich has 'em......$34

Compared to the newer style.....which are only $14

$460 is a very good price if it's in good condition.

What year did they change from old style ejector?

A really good price, if really clean. The micro groove rifling will shoot jacketed bullets just fine, and if sized right, will shoot cast bullets really well.

I have an 1894 357, made in 1980. It has the micro grove rifling. Mine shoots a gas checked lead bullet excellent. Most of what I read said lead and micro grove rifling was a no go. I would go for it.
