I'll take the opposite tack on the Remlin parts, I'd just as soon have one made up with those.

When Remington first took over Marlin there were widespread reports of a drop in quality since the folks at Remington didn't have the human knowledge to use the machinery properly. But they invested in new machinery and from what I read the later Remington Marlins were as good if not better than what Marlin put out.

Meanwhile, my experiences with recent Ruger products has been abysmal to say the least. Now, that's confined to one specific product line but I can see the cheapening of various things across a few of their handgun lines. Have only bought a couple of new Ruger rifles in the last few years but even those don't hold a candle to the solid feel of the ones made 10, 15 or more years ago. (Not counting the batch of LH SS .223 Hawkeye's several years ago of which about half had bent barrels shocked )

In other news, all you guys wanting special calibers or configurations, now's the time to start putting a bug in Lipsey's ear. wink If anyone can get it done, they can.

I don’t see the bolt action 22’s coming back, unless they decide to keep the tube-feds around. Might be a good idea for the blue states that wanna ban any detachable mag over 10 rounds.

I’m surprised they’re still selling lots of 57’s. Neat gun and good price, but the ammo is about IMPOSSIBLE to find, and the prices are stupid expensive now, when there is availability.

I STILL wanna see a “takedown” bolt action Charger.

Hell, make a bolt-action American pistol. The Striker and XP-100 are gone, and it impossible to find a new Encore pistol, anywhere.


I'm also surprised that Ruger would continue to build the Marlin 60s, since they compete in the same market niche and for the same market share as the 10/22.

What is a 57?


Ruger 5.7x28 pistol. Does exactly what the FN does (maybe better) for $400 less. Ammo was hard to find as it was, and now is $75 a box, for what is effectively a “hot” 22 mag...

10/22 and model 60 sell to different parts of the market. Some people like tube mags and don't want to hunt around for the safety.

Not a Marlin, Remington or Ruger but the local SW had a new Stevens 12ga side x side for $4599.00.

That’s a far cry from the going rate for the Stevens 311. 😁

Damndest thing. Wonder if he also voted for Warlock and Tossoff to put a cherry on top of this gigantic cluster booboo?

If some of their plans ever make it through court challenges and become law, the least of Ruger's problems will be how to make a quality Marlin rifle.

I'll bet they might try to undercut Henry prices at first to get the ball rolling.
