Marlin.......pre Remington $$$$$$$$$$ even a blue/walnut 357 will start at $900

Henry.........probably the easiest to locate....just remember the tube loading

Rossi......strong......C/S sucks......357 in any lever is tough to find

I've had trouble with the Marlin .357 lever actions, both blued and steel.

I had the blued gun on a mid winter jackrabbit hunt, temps around zero. The loading gate is on a long spring. The little screw that holds the spring to the frame broke mid-hunt. End of that. frown I don't know if it was defective or didn't handle the pretty intense cold well.

The stainless gun was one of the big loop carbines with picatinny rail. I bought it for a bedroom gun mostly with maybe some hunting later. I got it home. It would not accept a 2nd shell into the magazine. Rather than wait weeks for Marlin to maybe fix it, I told them to give me my money back and I bought an AR for that job instead.

I can't speak to the other options.

I’ve got a Marlin 1894 CSBL in .357 and love it, no issues. I did take it apart and smooth out the edges around the loading port and took some of the spring pressure off the loading gate by bending it a little. Feeds and functions fine and accuracy is great.

Have owned 3 Rossi's and 2 Marlins in stainless, all good shooters. No experience with the hard chrome finish on the Henry model.

Buds shows the Henry 357 in stock. I've got one. Great gun. Wouldn't mind getting the one with the side loading gate, but other guns have priority right now.

Those Rossis are not junk. The local store has that model in stock. The safety on the bolt is a bit of an eye sore. The wood could be finished better. The action is not buttery smooth like the Henry but it does work as designed when you handle it with authority.
