    First Lever Action

    So I recently traded for an almost mint condition Marlin 1894 CS chambered in 357Mag. This is my first lever action and has possibly sparked a new found love. The previous owner said it had been fired less than 10 times and I likely tripled that amount over the weekend. It was an absolute blast to shoot. If I can't get a deer during bow season or while hunting on private ground, there is a good chance this will be my new deer gun. Last years obsession was ARs and now its old cowboy guns.

    Heck of a good entry into the lever world.

    Nice way to start your collection. Pretty grain in the stock also. My Marlins are some of my favorites.

    That is a very nice looking rifle. That wood looks like it is glowing in the first two shots.

    The .357's are harder to find than the .44's, and therefore more sought after, and more expensive.
    For an all-around pistol caliber rifle, you can't get much better than the .357mag.

    Better watch yourself though. Levers have a way of sneaking up on you, and before you know it, you just HAVE to have another.

    My first lever was a Marlin 1894 in .44mag.
    That was some time ago.
    I now have levers in, .22lr, .22mag, .327fed/mag, .357mag, .44mag, .454Casull, .35Rem, .30-30Win, .45/70gvt.

    It can become a habit...

    Nothing wrong with broadening your horizons...now you'll need matching wheel guns and a period correct shotgun too. A win94 .30-30 was the first long arm I bought, the first of a few lever guns.

    Good to have a convert, but lever guns to me are the guns of America, John Wayne, Bucky O' Neil, Teddy Roosevelt. from 50-95 to 25-20 I love them all. I like Marlins and have several, but just the sound of the word Winchester causes great emotion.

    I forgot to add that the serial # dates it to the year I was born which really sweetened the deal for me!
