Hello everyone I had a Marlin 1894 in 44 mag 20 years ago and no longer have it long sad story. Anyways I have been trying to replace it for 20 years. I bought a Winchester 92 in 44 mag around 15 years ago it was ok but I really preferred the marlin. A couple of months ago I sold the Winchester and bought a Henry Big Boy 44 mag love this gun, however I still want a marlin 1894 in 44 mag. I have been doing some homework and am trying to figure out which one to buy from my studying it seems after 2008 they were sold to Remington and the quality went downhill. They were purchased by Ruger recently and it looks like they are doing a great job however as of now the 1894 is not available. I really would want a pre 1983 without the safety. However I would consider a 1983 to 2007 gun if the deal was right. Any advice or insights into the best years or the years to avoid would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance

If you're willing to pay the current jacked up price for such a gun, I'd wait until Ruger came out with their version of it and let them $-rape-$ you instead. Better them doing it than some greedy scalper on the internet. At least you'd have the backing of the company should there be any quality issues as opposed to none if you buy from a private party
