Looking to buy a Marlin, Henry, etc 45-70 lever action for hunting in thick brush.
No safe queens or collector pieces please.
Thanks

Used Marlins are priced way higher today than a year ago (because they shut down and were sold). Henry's are a tad heavier. (I've owned an 1895 and 1895G) I had problems with the "Marlin Jam" in both my Marlins, and both were JM guns. I'm now down to a Henry H010(?), basic steel receiver with 18" barrel, as my lever 45-70. I also own a single shot Henry in .45-70. The lever is a very nice gun, very accurate. I'm talking good bolt gun accuracy at 100 yds.

If you peruse the internet sites, you can buy a Henry NIB at a lower price than any Marlin. It should run you about $800-$900.

Mine is middle here and with it's very first harvest, below.
