After not enjoying my .454 Casull lever gun yesterday I was reviewing .44/.45 cal chamberings and ballistics last night and it occurred to me that despite the Marlin gun being heavier than my Rossi 92 the .450 Marlin would still likely be more punishing than my .454. Yeesh - no thank you.

I'd look into a good muzzle break/recoil reducer. Claims of a third or more recoil reduction (at the expense of muzzle blast) seem common and I don't see any reason why a .450 Marlin couldn't benefit from such an addition.
