Second post here hello everyone. I am going to buy my first lever action 44 mag soon. I found a used one it was seems to be okay condition for 350 at a gun store by me. I was hoping i could get some feed back on a couple things. Thanks in advanced. Before i go farther the reason i am getting the rifle is for bore and dear hunting. I plan on 20" barrel. I will be in places that i will see black bear and may hunt them and as i open my hunting grounds may see a grizzly. I hope to be able to chamber heavy large grain rounds in this if needed. So if i am looking to the wrong 44 mag (im getting a redhawk also so pretty set on 44 mag) lever gun please let me know iv been fighting over marlin or winchester and what year for a while not sure of the PRO vs CON i have read a lot of contradicting statements so some real knowledgeable advise helps . Okay next if this is fine for my purpose what things should i look out for when buying a used marlin 94? Thanks again if you made it to the end of my novel.
