    Grabagun.com is usually a little bit cheaper than buds. Both are good choices.

    I really do like the Henry lever actions and think they are worth paying a bit extra. The fit and finish of the wood is fantastic and when you hold one in your hands you can just get a feel for the American craftsmanship that went into producing that rifle. Once you get it broken in the lever action is nice and smooth. There are some differences in how the various lever actions load and eject cartridges. All the Henrys load via a magazine tube and eject to the side. Some brands have side loading and/or top ejection, the latter of which can preclude the use of a scope. It really depends on your price point and personal preferences.

    So I before was having the caliber debate I actually did the happy dance when I found out you could get .44 mag So that is what I chose.
    My one question is, Rossi, and Henry.
    Is the henry worth the extra $
    Is the Rossi decent?

    I have heard the New marlins are better i know there was a QA issue but they since got that fixed.

    If the Henry is worth the Money I will consider getting that.

    Go for the Henry, long term you will be happy with the better quality firearm.

    something to think about is a .44 Mag in a bolt action. I picked up a new Ruger 77/44 last week, they discontinued them last year but they can be found yet.

    I would check out gunbroker and see if you can find a JM stamped Marlin in 44 mag. Otherwise, I would get the Henry.

    Get the henry. It will be well worth it as far as quality. The rossi will only shoot hit the target if you press it up to the target and pull the trigger. then there is a 50/50 chance that you will either miss or the gun won’t fire.

    I have a ’90’s vintage Rossi in .44-40 that is accurate and has been shot quite a bit. Mostly cowboy shoots, no problems and smoothed out after the first couple hundred rounds ๐Ÿ˜€

    The hardware store in Elkader has a pretty good collection of Henry’s, just in case anyone is traveling that way and wants to handle one.

    BTW, I have no affiliation with the store, just happened on them while wandering around. B)
