I've got one. Marlin model 57M Levermatic. 22 mag, holds 15 rounds, 24" barrel and made 1960-69,

I have three new Henrys. No where near the build quality as the old Marlins - but still rugged enough and good shooters.

I owned a Levermatic, nice looking gun but the biggest POS of a firearm I've ever owned. Had failure to feed, fire and extract issues the two years I owned it. The reason it looked so good is that it never worked so the previous owner never used it. Finally cut 1/4" of the breech of the barrel and rechambered it and it would finally feed and fire but still had issues extracting sometimes. Sold it and was never so happy to see one gone.

I never had a problem with mine but do not shoot 22 magnums very much. Too expensive. I have two Marlin 39 .22 long-rifle lever-actions they get a lot of use and have never skipped a beat.

I've only ever had a problem with one Marlin. My 336 in .35 Remington jams now and then and the bolt gets stuck open.

I have a model 36 built in 1936 in 30-30 and although very worn - shoots and works perfect.

Some people love those old Levermatics, but from personal experience I'll never own another.

The Marlin I love is the Marlin 882SS in .22WMR. One of the first guns I bought brand new, nice heavy magazine that locks perfectly into place (not like the flimsy feel of the Savage 93) and very accurate. Put a little 3X9X32 scope on it and dialed it once and its only needed tiny adjustments in the last 15 years. If I do my part a nickle will cover the 7 holes at 50 yards.
