That is one cool little rifle.
Marlin 1894 .357 Carbine...second one I've owned, corrected a mistake...

Also had a .44 Magnum and a .218 Bee, sold the Bee and what became of the .44 is a mystery, seriously.

I purchased a .357 Marlin 1894C the year they first came out. Yeah, that preceded the stupid "safety" models. I mounted a nice little Lyman 66 receiver sight on it a couple of years later. It has the "Microgroove" rifling, so lead bullet accuracy is marginal. However, when fed a diet of jacketed bullets it groups quite well. Actually, the heavier the better. It loves 180 grain jacketed hollow points. I removed the receiver sight and tapped back in the semi-buckhorn to compete in SASS for a while. It would keep .38 Special cast bullets on the generous cowboy targets and never had a hitch with the shorter cases. The Lyman is happily back in place now as is the rear sight dovetail filler.

I have four Miroku rifles. A Weatherby XXII, a Browning A-Bolt 22, two B-92s, a 44mag and a 357mag, everyone of them is top notch.

No butt's about it, these Miroknchesters are fine rifles. I enjoy the three that I have and please excuse the poor photos.

Beautiful rifle. Miroku "Winchesters" are excellent guns. I have one of the 3000 Browning (Miroku) repo Model 71 Standard rifles (24"barrel) when they were offered in the mid 1980s. Excellent rifle. 'Jap made" is a complement with Miroku.

I agree with those who think the 73 is the best looker! Love the one you showed us here too. That color case really sets it all off. I have an original 73 in 32/20 which belonged to my father. He rcvd it as a first year wedding anniversary gift from my mom. Id really like one of those miroku versions to go with it. You know those post Belgean made Browning doubles have been
made by Miroku for a long time.

I was testing a new case of .22 LR ammo this morning, so I decided to bench the Model 73 at 50 yards while I was at it.





For bulk cast-bullet hand loads, I'm fine with this group. A friend had his chronograph set up, so I recorded the velocity on the target. 908 fps. The powder manual listed a little over 800 fps from a revolver, so the rifle's figure seems reasonable.
