I have both, a Marlin Guide Gun & a Henry brass .45-70.

They are both overkill for deer, but with lighter loads both would drop a deer at your typical ranges.
My Marlin has a shorter barrel, and if you're in tight brush that might be fractionally easier to carry & maneuver.

Both are easily scoped, already drilled & tapped.

Both are quality guns, and Marlin is coming back.
