    Ruger Announces Their First Marlin Rifle Release

    ___


    MAYODAN, NC., Oct. 06, 2021. Christopher J. Killoy, Ruger CEO, said the first Marlin rifle to be delivered in December 2021 from their Mayodan, NC plant will be the Marlin model 1895SBL in 45-70.
    Killroy indicated that the company will release this model first and will be followed up by some 336 models and the popular model 444 as well. These centerfire rifles will then be followed up by some model 1894's in 357 and 44 magnum.

    He also indicated that the Marlin famous Microgroove and Ballard rifling have been replaced with their method of rifling and that initial results are offering extremely good accuracy that they are use to producing from their other centerfire rifles in the Ruger line.

    The model choice for first release is a proven best seller from past Marlin releases and is anticipated to sell very well.
    The company emphasized that although initial availability will be light they expect to ramp up quickly.

    I was considering a .450 bushmaster upper for giggles, but this is an attractive alternative.

    Glad to see them go into production.

    A couple of years ago while in Southern California I went into a gun shop to see what SoCal gunners were buying. The counter guy told me that in rifles, it was a seller's market for anything center fire lever action and that people accessorized the shit out of them. Interesting to see that the new rifle has a factory picitinny rail and aperture sight.

    I believe that’s exactly how Marlin was always selling that particular model, with a pic rail and aperture sight.
