I thought I stole it too. I know the person who sold it to me and he had owned it for some time. What are they worth?

The Marlins and Winchesters are worth more, especially if you can get one with a 16 inch barrel. The Rossi's should go for $350+, possibly more if it is the shorter 16 barrel. The wood stock on yours looks great. As far as I can see it's a keeper.

I've got a model 94 in 357 and I love it! Great little gun. Do Rossi's get the "Marlin Jamn" also? I've got just a touch of one in mine, still need to fix it, haven't found the time yet.

This one has the 16" barrel. It seems finicky on ejection. I have to hold it upright and near level to empty it. Is that the "Marlin Jam?"

The Marlin jam is a affixation that affects only Marlin 1894 actions, where a little channel is worn in to the carrier over time as lever is locked home. What happens is it lets in two rounds in to the carrier causing a jam. It's fixable, but marlin should be the one fixing it in production not afterword.

The Rossi 1892 are not effected by this. The only downside to the 1892 is it's complicated takedown and reassembly for cleaning. Other than that it's a great levergun.

My .357 rifle is a Marlin 1894C. It has a Williams Foolproof rear sight with a post front sight. But it did cost a little more than $100. Sounds like you got a terrific deal.

Thanks for the offers everyone. I am flattered. But I think I will keep this one. There is just something about it that feels right. Don't know what it is. I just feel connected to it. Weird, huh?
