I'm looking for a lever gun in .45LC which I'll use mostly for cowboy shooting. I like the looks of the 1873 24" rifle with straight stock that is on the Cimarron Firearms website. I also like the looks of the Marlin 1894 Cowboy with 24" barrel. I'm leaning towards the 1873 for its authentic looks and I lean towards the Marlin for its reasonable price tag.

Does anyone out there have both or have handeled both? How do they handle in comparison. Do the actions work smoothly on the Cimarrons. I've fired the Marlin in .38 at a Cowboy shoot and was pleasantly suprised how accurate it was. Any opinions on Cimarron's 1873 and its accuracy?

Any other opinions on the two?

TIA

Thanks for the replys. I went ahead and bought a Marlin for the price. I had the Marbels tang site mounted on it and it shoots great! Don't ask for group sizes because I didn't measure any, but I hit most all of the targets at the cowboy shoots that I have been to.
