1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    For more detailed information please see this post: Thread Bump Functionality.

    I know this isn't a trap gun but thought I would try anyway.

    I looking for a good used 357 Magnum lever action with at least a 20" barrel. I'm not picky about the brand as long as it's NOT a Rossi. If you have one you want to part with, please send me your contact information........Thanks

    That pretty much limits it to a Marlin Cowboy 1894...the standard 1894 357 has an 18.5"....with a pistol cartridge the 1.5" less barrel means didley...mine drives tacks

    Love my Marlin 1894 .357 fitted it with fiber optic sights and it is a quick pointer and very accurate shooter. The barrel is 18.5 though. My only regret is I didn't buy one like this years ago.

    Do not buy any current production Marlin. Just a few hours ago I had a hands on look at three 1894's in 44 mag. The quality of work and action work is piss poor to put it nicely. The one gun has now been back to the factory twice and still does not function well according to the owner and dealer. This all is in conjunction to the poor Remington quality that we have been seeing for several years now in new guns. At this rate it will not be many more years until Remington and Marlin buries themselves....leaving two American icons in history, very sad to think about.

    Sad but true...heard SOME good reports coming back on the "Remlins" but you can still find like new pre-2009 guns made before Remington took over and started really making trash...just look for a serial # that starts with 92 or higher...my gun has a 94 serial number (2006) and has even taken deer within 100yds with 158gr ammo

    My Marlin in .357 shoots just fine. And it looks great. Do NOT put wadcutters in it. There is a minimum case length that must be followed. And it feeds the .357 brass the best. Just load it to .38 pressures if you want.
