I've slain a slew of whitetail with my 1980 Winchester 94 and with my 1978 Marlin 336.
I bought them both new at the Walmart in Crossett, Arkansas for $99 each.
I scoped my 336 and used my 94 when I didn't need a scope.
I never owned a pre '64 but neither my Winchester nor my Marlin will ever be for sale. Not while I'm breathing, at least.
My 94 does not have angle eject or a rebounding hammer. Safety is still half cock.
