Lever Action 45-70 Question
I have been wanting another 45-70 for a while. I have three now, a original 1886 Winchester, a 1960s/70s vintage 1895 Marlin, and a Siamese Mauser. I am looking at either a 1895 Marlin Cowboy, or a browning 1886. What ever rifle I end up with will have straight stock/lever, 26" octagon barrel, and full length magazine.
So my question is: Is either of these actions measurably stronger than the other? I tend to like the look of the 1886 a bit better. TIA for any input.
