Not a big fan of any of these rifles. But, I have handled a T/C Venture and thought it was an absolute P O S ! Of the rifles mentioned here, the Marlin has has WAY, WAY, WAY, more good things said about it than the others.
Best of luck with whatever you get!
Me, I'd look for an older, post '64 Win or M700 Rem USED!
