No, I did not me ".357", I'm referring to the .375 Win round.

I've heard of this model, but I'm unclear as to what frame it's built on. Same frame as the 336? Same frame as the 1895? Or some different frame in between?

Thanks for any info. Honestly, it shouldn't matter much to me personally, since there's nothing that big in Texas, but I did become curious. Was considering getting a .35 Rem for pigs, and then though "what if I took it a step further..."

Marlin Model 375 rifles were built on the 336 action and styled similar to the 1895's & 444's. Produced from 1980 to 1983 about 16,000 were made. Never very popular. Now considered a "collector" rifle, and bring high prices in good condition.
BTW: The "New Model 1895" rifles are built on 336 actions.
If you want to shoot factory ammo, consider a Marlin 444 or 450 Marlin. If you reload a Marlin 1895 in 45/70. Any of these are good "Hawg Guns". In the part of Texas where I live, a 350 pound feral pig is not unusual.
