I had a Marlin 357mag and it worked great. It was fun but never as much fun as shooting the revolver for hunting. I ended up selling it. That being said, if I were buying one, I'd look for a good used one and would focus on one thing when looking at it.......will it cycle and feed shells? The single biggest complaint about 99% of the lever guns is that they won't cycle through the tube and feed into the chamber reliably. Other than that just make sure some yahoo didn't do a shade tree trigger job on it and screw up the trigger. Ask the seller to cycle the gun or take some dummy rounds with you and do it yourself. If it won't feed and cycle, walk away and look at another one. Good luck.
