I was going to hold off on my review but I can't wait any longer. First off no complaints to Bud's, I have bought 27 guns in less than two years from them, no complaints,
The Marlin on the other hand!
When I picked it up I took it out to shoot it. Right off the bat it wouldn't load rounds, and no matter how I tried it wouldn't load and jammed all rounds. I called Marlin and explained and they said send it at my exspense and they would look at it. Instead I took it to the gunsmith that I use regularly and trust to have it fixed. He has had it two months and so far has been unable to get it to work properly. He is still working with it.
Since I have bought a Henry Big Boy 44 magnum from Bud's that I am very happy with, and works it properly.
I like the lighter weight of the Marlin by over 2 pounds of the Henry, but the Henry works flawlessly and the Marlin so far dosn't work at all ! Which would you rather be holding when a wild boar was running at you?
