Any recomm. on cartridge conversion for a Marlin 1894?
I'm new here, so 'hi'.... I am thinking over snapping up a low priced, WELL worn M1894 Marlin in 44 mag. A bit of repair work will have to be done to this gun by myself, at least, before it's shootable/huntable. While I was at it, I figured why not send it off to one of the lever gun houses and have it converted to something interesting? I've seen stuff on a Forkin conversion to .50 AE, but wondering if anyone has converted this gun to the new .500 S&W? Or, if it's even feasable? Other ideas appreciated, and I might just leave it in .44 if the barrel is still good and will shoot, and try to find some souped up .44 loadings for deer/hogs/yard monsters out to 100 yards. I'd appreciate any input from you folks.

Sounds like fun, but probably expensive. There was an article in Rifle Shooter this month about a Rossi made for Legacy Arms in .454 Casul. It's a model 92. Being a Rossi, it should be less than the smithing you are talking about. You miss the fun, but get to start shooting right away. Make a nice gun to pair up with a Ruger Alaskan.
