    Well, long story short, the 45-70 Marlin turned in to this: 1547105147257316846903004855446.jpg

    Lol, yup. Was gonna buy the Marlin, found out how much it would cost in ammo, decided the Henry made more sense next to the GP100 and SP101.
    iirc the Marlin 45-70 was $650 or thereabouts. It was at Shawsheen firearms in Billerica. Bought the Henry there instead.

    Actually, the 38/357 gave me a bug for levers, found a Henry 44mag from a member here. Kip wants to trade me for his SuperBlackHawk, but I already have a 44mag revolver. 1 revolver, 1 rifle makes more sense to me than 2 revolvers no rifle 20190131_123220.jpg

    I have that Big Boy in steel. It has become one of my favorite guns to bring to the range. It shoots 38 spl like a 22 in terms of recoil.
    Btw, my kid wants a 45-70 lever gun. He doesn’t seem to care about the price of feeding it.
