Maybe, just maybe, we'll see the 444 Marlin back in production!

Maybe but they have said that for many years now.

I would think Bryce Towlsey actually getting one in his hands to write an article about indicates Marlin intends to produce them.

Not really because just two years ago at 2017 Shotshow the same thing was said and folks had one in their hand then too.

444 marlin video produced by none other than American Hunter and their fake news.

I still hope though.

Time will tell. I have two 444's already so not looking for another. But hope they do bring it out and it does well. It can only help sustain the cartridge. Incidentally, mogwai has an ad in the classifieds for 134 used .444 cases at a good price if anyone is interested. I'm set with my supply.

Nice rig. I don't have a stainless one. That's probably the most practical config they made. That a 20" barrel? I'd have probably bitten on one of the 444p's if they weren't ported. I have their standard 444 22" pistol grip ballard rifle and a first year production with 24" microgroove.

So would you sell one? Though Iā€™d probably refrain from being scalped. šŸ˜‰

Yeah, I converted it to walnut straight stock and had the barrel cut to 20ā€

Not just Bryce Towsley, but also Brian Pearce (a real Marlin fan) has had article published this year on the new 444 Marlin.

I'm pretty confident that it will finally happen.

I'd sure like to see it happen. Great cartridge!

Regards, Guy

I hope so but these tales and the Marlin link have been there for years.
