Well, I was able to handle and inspect the new lever action rifles from Marlin this week. They are bringing out a few more versions of them. Blue, and in 30-30. Plus the 1894 in .44mag. They look great!!!

I am anxious for the .44 .

For reasons underexplained and over rationalized by gun traders, I've found myself with zero .44 long guns. I feel naked.

C'mom Ruger! Let's get these back on the street!

What is the pricing for the new Marlins? I wonder how easy it will be to actually get one if desired. I thought about a Henry .357 carbine but several local gun shops told me that they would not be able to order one for me, plus the $1,000 cost was a bit off putting. I don't need a lever action, but I sort of would like one.

I have an older .44 JM Marlin. Got it used for a song and it looks like it was a truck gun. But it is as smooth as glass. I have thought about having it restored, but that makes no sense. I’ve been looking for a case hardened side gate Henry, but I can’t find one for even close to MSRP. And I refuse to be gouged. My next thought was to try a Rossi- still on the fence about that. But if the Ruger/Marlin is coming this year, I’ll wait for one of those. Anxious to see what they think they’re worth…I paid $699 new for my 1895 GBL 45-70 about 7 years ago. I was floored when I saw the new stainless version was fetching $2500.

As long as Ruger keep slowly dribbling the lever actions out, the price will continue to be more than most are willing to pay.

Ruger please make the 460 and 500 magnum lever guns.
