I do like Marlins...but I don't want a gun that's gonna break easy or jam up all of the time.
Really? I never knew Marlin lever actions had those problems. Maybe the newer "Remlin" ones but none I've ever owned or handled
As for the Rossi's, about every model 92 owner I've ever talked to has had nothing but good to say about their rifle.
But it's your money, feel free to spend as much as you want to.
