    My dad has one of those in 45-70. He took it out shooting a few times then relegated it to his rifle museum. At 82, I think it beat the hell out of him and he even told me that “nothin around here needs that much killin’”!

    With over 200 million firearms in private possession, in addition to a collective ammo round count of over a trillion rounds, it should be obvious that we in the firearm community and culture are NOT the problem!

    No, I don't remove screws just for cleaning. Too much chance of damaging things just for routine tasks.

    Even I have done that...the Marlin is extremely simple. (note...I've not taken it down further...I even let my 'Smith slick it up )

    I really don't think the Remlin lever guns ever been built as a love child. I've seen enough of them at the stores and range. Seeing them up close still saddens me. Fit and finish has degraded tremendously.

    The laminate furniture is made of quality materials, so why mess it up with hot waffle pressed checkering? I think it feels cheesy and looks hideous. I held one up to the light at Sheel's and could see daylight between the frame and wood. The wood inletting around the tang was loosy goosy. The stocks felt fat and clumsy, in dire need of Bubba belt sanding treatment. The Remlin actions I tried were rough as my old Rossi '92.

    Check out the slenderness of the furniture on this low buck Glenfield. Even the pressed in checker job looks attractive when compared to a Remlin.

    All of mine are JM stamped Marlins.

    1895 .45-70 1 of 1000 cowboy
    1894 .45 Colt cowboy limited
    39A made in 1958 before micro groove
    57M in .22 Mag. It was a little ahead of its time, based on a few thing in its design, it is estimated to be 1964 or 65. It's a very short throw.

    Then there is the token Rossi 92 in .357

    When I was younger, I had a Winchester 30/30 that was my go to for hunting whitetail deer in South Texas. Recently my father passed his Marlin .44 Mag to me. I haven't yet taken her to the range but am looking forward to it.

    I suspect that you will love it as much as I do mine....you can go from mild to wild with the various ammo loads.

    444 is unique enough that I'd snap one up if it came to my LGS. One actually did come through about three months ago. It was pointed out to me one Saturday morning when I went in for my usual coffee and donuts, and it was almost telling me its stories as I held it. I put it back and went home to "think about it." My mistake. When I called that afternoon, it was gone.
