I like the Winnie better but I've killed more game with the Marlin.

Winchester is the only lever gun allowed in my safe!!!!!

Should I shoot? I don't care, im not the one holding the gun, if it was me, we'd be skinning by now.

I find the marlins smoother and less likely to jam up at inoppurtune times.

It is the shallowest water that makes the most noise.

94s should be cycled very quickly....doing so will preclude jamming....running the lever slowly in a 94 invites jams....

That's been my experience too. Which is why I don't own any Winchesters anymore. That, as far as I'm concerned, is an unreliable firearm and has no place in my arsenal.

My factory Marlins don't jam. The one that's customized has some bugs that's I'm working out. Which is another nice thing about Marlins....a novice can take them apart and put them back together without too much fuss at all. Not happening with a M94.

You really under estimated the ramifications of the boondoggle you have just perpetrated!

Both are classics. Especially the older 94's.

When I worked in a gun shop we sold more 336's than anything. The 94's always seemed loose and rattled alot. The Marlins always felt like a better made rifle.

Good luck, Tony

If you shoot open sights, Winchesters are the way to go. If you wnat to scope it - Marlins are better suited.

My safe has many more Winchesters than anything else. I Marlin - a 1895 Guide Gun in 45-70.

Marlins have a heavier action and receiver, seem to be a more solidly built gun to me, but nothing wrong with the 94's, I just like the Marlins better.

Well, sometimes you eat the bear, and sometimes, well, he eats you, so the Dude must abide!
