Default Marlin 1894c - Update 6-10-18

I saw this for sale on a local website for $350. Couldn't pass it up. It has some nicks, dings and wear. That's okay with me. I had been looking for a deal on a shooter grade lever action in .357, so the timing was perfect.

I'm thinking the heavier loads, like the Grizzly 180 and 200 grain loads, should work well. Anybody have experience with these rounds and micro-groove rifling?

UPDATE 6-10-18:

I pulled the stocks off, gave them a good sanding and refinished them with Birchwood Casey Tru-Oil. This is supposed to be really good stuff, but I think I need to let it dry for a few weeks to harden fully. It was a big improvement and I like the darker color better on this gun. The results are below.
