# I took a photo of my two Marlins, the 1894P on top and the 444P below:
Here's a close-up of the receivers:

Here are the cartridges, top-to-bottom: .44 magnum, .444 Marlin, .30-06 (for reference). The bullets are 200 grain .44-40 RNFP (.430), 300 grain Hornady XTP (.430), and 147 grain FMJ (.308).

I think it fair to say that as this was a major release film, the position taken on guns in the hands of citizens (and kids!) was fairly indicative of what was socially acceptable at the time, and a shocking reminder of the ground lost over the last 50 years.

Oh, how far have we fallen.
