I have a Marlin 1895 I bought new in 1978.
One thing to consider: should you slip and fall during hunting, and put a dent in the stock, you'll wince at doing that to the Marlin.
But you'll AGONIZE doing that to a Winchester or Browning.
The Marlin is made for hunting. The Winchester is made for collecting, showing off (not necessarily a bad thing) and careful hunting, in my opinion.
For hunting, I'll take the Marlin. For showing up at the range to cultivate "gee whiz" ... I'll take the Winchester.
