I have two Puma's, a blue 45LC and a stainless 44mag, both 16" carbines. Both are accurate and reliable. They could use a longer LOP, but still good shooters. I wanted Marlins, but Marlin is having some serious QC issues. I looked at a new Marlin in 357 that was on the rack at the gun store, but it had the infamous Marlin jam issue, wouldn't cycle, so they sent it back home. The Puma's were both under $500. The Marlins are more expensive and didn't work. Marlin is supposed to start producing the 1894s again this month, hopefully with all of their QC issues corrected. In the mean time, I would go with Rossi if I were you, if you can find one. I want to get a 357 and round out my collection.
