The winchesters and marlins are all i've seen.
Winchester had an 1893 and 1897. The '97 was a redesign for smokeless ammunition. It is the better model to have. The '97 was made all the way to about 1940, with over a million made.
Marlin did a number of models in the late 1800s and into the early 1900s. They stopped by sometime in the 1920s.
Iirc, all the marlins were takedowns, while winchester made takedowns and non-takedowns.
Having been inside both, I don't think one is particularly stronger than the other. The marlin might edge out the winchester, but not by much. The marlin is a much simpler design.
Parts are more common for the winchester.
However, it should be noted that as the marlin wears, there can be an issue where it will fire without the breech bolt being locked closed. If you have one, or get one, it should be checked by someone familiar with these guns to be sure it's safe.
