      450 marlin lever....

      At the local gun shop and range, saw a used marlin 450 lever action.

      Priced at 550 $

      Decent condition.

      Anyone have advice on this type of rifle?

      I asked to see the ammunition, and learned that hornady makes them and they are made just for marlins.

      I want it just for collection reasons, and occasionally I go hiking/ camping out here in the pacific north west.

      Is this practical? I liked it a lot but want an investment rather than a new toy......

      I don't know anything about how good an investment it would be. Are they going to stop making them anytime soon? I haven't seen prices go up very much for them.

      I have two friends who went on a trip to Alaska. One bought the Marlin 450, and the other bought a lever gun in .45-70. The .45-70 was much easier to shoot, recoil very managible, accurate. The Marlin 450 was not as accurate and the recoil was stout, to say the least.
