Anyone have one of these? I'm looking at the model with 3 chokes. Seems like it would be just the thing for dispatching my chicken coop raiders (snakes and skunks) and would also be good for fall squirrels.

Is there another lever 410 model I should consider?

Winchester had the 9410 and I believe Rossi put out a version also.

I have an original Marlin 1883 in 410 but don't use it as it sits in a museum these days. The half-cock safety is supposedly weak but I didn't have any problems the little I used it. I prefer break action shotguns in this size as I can easily pocket the empties for reloading.

This is the OP. I ended up buying a Marlin 1895 .410, current offering with screw in chokes. It doesn't have the deep blueing or dark stock finish of the JM marlins, but it's decent. I've already popped 4 snakes and 2 skunks.

I do plan on rubbing the stock down with some more oil. Any suggestions? Tung oil, linseed, tru-oil?
