I ended up having some issues with the Henry. Mainly the lever kept dropping about two inches when firing .357. Sent it back to Henry for repair. Still did it. Other times the lever would get stuck and had to yank down pretty hard to get it loose. Guess I got a lemon. Ended up selling it to a gun shop.

I did find that the Remington 130gr FMJ's fed pretty well in the Henry. Compared to the .357 mag the shape and height of the bullet were closely matched.

Are there any issues with the Marlin 1894c?

I'm really diggin' that 1894CST, but man the price is crazy...
