Your selection does not have to be limited to Marlin or Winchester. I own and shoot several Marlin lever guns and have owned a few 94 Winchesters. I personally prefer the Marlin. I also have a very well used Rossi 92 in .45 Colt. It is a great little rifle for the money and heavy cast bullets are no problem. Marlin only offers a 1894 Cowboy .45 Colt with 24" oct. barrel and they are between &#36450 and &#36500 when a dealer has one. In the mid 90's.....Marlin offered a limited run of 1894's in .44 magnum and .45 Colt with 16-1/2" barrels(non ported) and I have one each. They can be found from time to time if you look....but still are pricey when you find one. The new Rossi's have a safety located on top of the bolt which I like less than the cross bolt Marlin's or Winchesters. My 92 Rossi is a pre-safety and has performed excellently since shelling out the &#36200 for it several years ago. Good luck to you!
