Marlin  O0

Or Henry  O0   In this case, it looks like the Henry is a couple hundred cheaper than the Marlin.

In all seriousness, the Marlin is a great rifle, too. I own a Model 60, one of the best rifles ever made.
Brownings are nice, but in terms of quality AND accuarcy AND ruggedness, it's hard to beat the Marlin.

The Henry might also be of better quality, I've read some unkindly Posts on Marlins lately.  :-\

A couple of my pals have Henry .17 HMR lever action rifles and really like them.

My brother has a little Browning lever action .22 rifle that he squirrel hunts with.  It's a neat little gun.  O0
 
I've been wanting to get one of the Henry Big Boys in either .44 mag or .45 Colt for quite a while now.  Never can seem to have an extra $800-900 though.  :'(

I almost bought a Henry Big Bore in .44 just about a month ago. Price tag was $629. O0

If I was to choose a .22 Lever, I'd definitely go with a Henry. $239 at the gun store and it's a sweet little setup. :)

A friend of mine has a Browning lever in 22. We were plinking one day and he had a case failure. ( Certainly not the guns fault). When he opened the breech, the head or rim of the spent cartridge tore off the rest of the casing and fell down into the action. That jammed everything up. This caused us to get a real good look at the internals. The lever and bolt work on a gear and rack systen, while I beleive most others are more of a simple link system. Now the gear system is very percise, but I think it maybe a bit over complicated for the job at hand. I beleive the case head got caught between the gear on the lever and the rack on the bolt. This might not have happened on a cheaper gun with a simple link system.
 The Browning system is very precise, precision cost extra. While a very well made gun, I think it's a bit to much for the money.

If you stop buying those Taurus belly guns you might just get something useful. :wink:

Already have a .44 carbine, .444 Marlin, and a .45-70 Govt.  It's kind of one of those things that you want, but don't really need.  I needed the .327 Fed Mag.  O0 ;D
