Marlin 357 MAG 18.5 WAL
[70410]
$554.00
by Ian H Date Added: Sunday 10 June, 2012
Hmm. Where to start... This rifle is ok if you have lots of .38 / .357 to just throw around. However here are a few issues. Unless you are using roll crimped bullets then you need to watch out as side feeding will cause the bullet to push down into the casing. The front site is a little lack luster as it often hard to get a good sight picture. (This is the same opinion of about 4 other shooters I have had shoot this rifle). On my Marlin the trap door likes to push the casings to the ejection port when feeding so I often have to work the action about half way, let it back out about an inch and then slam the bullet in or it just keeps locking up over and over. I have studied this issue and taken down the whole rifle several time to try and correct it, but it never seems to get any better or any worse. I have put about 400 rounds through this rifle but I'm not really a big fan of it.

Rating: 3 of 5 Stars! [3 of 5 Stars!]
