i also have one of these! actually, mine isn't the mag but merely a .22 short and lr. see: http://www.leverguns.com/articles/malloy.htm
interesting info re the Marlin 57.
i saw a .22 short/lr a few weeks ago for $225 at the san jose gun show....with scope as is mine. however, that one had a cheek swell and mine does not.
