All the non-catalog Winchesters are 3X what I want to spend. So I'm back to Marlin vs. Mossberg again, and I know squat about the Mossy.
""It may be laid down as a primary position, and the basis of our system, that every Citizen who enjoys the protection of a free Government, owes not only a proportion of his property, but even his personal services to the defence of it, and consequently that the Citizens of America (with a few legal and official exceptions) from 18 to 50 Years of Age should be borne on the Militia Rolls, provided with uniform Arms, and so far accustomed to the use of them, that the Total strength of the Country might be called forth at a Short Notice on any very interesting Emergency." - George Washington. Letter to Alexander Hamilton, Friday, May 02, 1783

I've seen one, never handled it or shot it. Just for that reason I would go with the Marlin.

Wow, back on topic without poking or prodding. Wonder of wonders, miracles of miracles!!!!!

And what Tom said - go with the Marlin, you won't go wrong.

Tom, Isn't the 45-70 a high wall?

Now that you pin me down I have no idea, it was a "something" Wall, I thought he said Low wall. I know the difference but I don't remember which this was.

They still make a 45-110

Sure it weighs 13+ pounds, but when you REALLY need to knock it down,....you send the very best...

The 1874 "Boss" scroll down to the link, ONLY $2250.00 :P

It only takes one round anyway... :o
Thomas Jefferson: The strongest reason for the people to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against the tyranny of government. That is why our masters in Washington are so anxious to disarm us. They are not afraid of criminals. They are afraid of a populace which cannot be subdued by tyrants."

I prefer the 336 because mounting scopes is fast and with lever evolution ammo a 30-30 becomes a real show stopper.

My Marlin 336c in.30-30 is the go to rifle for gun hunting right now. It has a Ghost Ring rear sight and a post front sight which I replaced the dovetail and hood sights for. I like the rear site closer to my eye. Last year I shot a 4 point blacktail running right to left at about 20 yards and dropped him with one shot (that'd be a 8 pointer to you whitetail hunters), a 3 point blacktail at about 80 yards standing broadside, and a nice hog at 100 yards. Dumped all three of them. 6+1 capacity gives a decent amount of shots available. Just a good, solid rifle.   
Don't know anything about Mossberg.

"I expect perdition, I always have. I keep this building at my back, and several guns handy, in case perdition arrives in a form that's susceptible to bullets. I expect it will come in the disease form, though. I'm susceptible to diseases, and you can't shoot a damned disease." ~ Judge Roy Bean, Streets of Laredo

For the Patriots of this country, the Constitution is second only to the Bible for most. For those who love this country, but do not share my personal beliefs, it is their Bible. To them nothing comes before the Constitution of these United States of America. For this we are all labeled potential terrorists. ~ Dean Garrison

"When it comes to the enemy, just because they ain't pullin' a trigger, doesn't mean they ain't totin' ammo for those that are."~PegLeg
