    I not picky when it comes to models, I’ll take any Marlin I can get :-))

  2. ARRL Member on November 16, 2021 at 10:11 pm

    I used to really like Marlins when I was a kid and wanted a 39A, but couldn’t afford it. When I got a little older I managed to get a 336SC in a trade that it is old enough to not have that useless crossbolt "safety" on it. Mine may be considered a rare find by some collectors and useless by others because it is chambered for .219 Zipper (a necked down .30-30.)
    I also have a Marlin Glenfield M60 and found a major error in it. A jig is available to drill a hole in the rear of a Ruger 10-22 to allow bore cleaning from the rear. That is not possible on the M60. The only way to clean a M60 without risking damage to the rifling at the muzzle is to use a bore snake.
    I do own lever action rifles in .357, .44 & .45 LC, but they all say "Henry" on them. The wood to metal fit is excellent and the actions are very smooth. No more Marlins for me.
    With a business degree and a career in accounting, I have always heard that "NA" stood for "not applicable." It may be difficult to convince people otherwise, even as a joke.

    Have a 60, don’t own a 10/22! All I’m saying.

  4. Mitchell Oates on November 16, 2021 at 10:14 pm

    As far as sticking with forged parts – that might have something to do with all the older model Marlins out there, and supplying replacement parts for them – in short, simplify the inventory and supply chain.
    Dropping the Micro-Groove rifling and going with conventional rifling – I’d say the popularity of hard cast bullets may have had something to do with that decision.

    NA reminds me of a scene in V for Vendetta where V gives the detective some information.

  6. Richard Colligon on November 16, 2021 at 10:15 pm

    I believe Ruger will return Marlin to their glory day’s. Problem is I’m both a Ruger and Henry fanboy. I don’t know, can you own to many gun’s? ( stupid question ).

  7. James Thomas on November 16, 2021 at 10:15 pm

    Im kinda excited to see what ruger does bring out. Im glad they’re sticking to marlin quality, and hopefully better than freedom group remlins.i suppose ill have to get a new lever gun around christmas…just to see how they did…not because i want one

  8. Greg Scott on November 16, 2021 at 10:16 pm

    Great news. Was so glad to hear when it was announced that Ruger had bought Marlin. I knew they would do right by them. It appears they have. Thanks for passing on the good news.

  9. m2gja m1 on November 16, 2021 at 10:17 pm

    Hi George I must have missed something. Did you make videos the last two weeks? I didn’t see anything. I was hoping you just took a break. Glad you’re OK It might be time for a new computer. Although I’ve been getting info from other’s. I’m a big fan of Ruger I have two semi auto rifles in 5.56NATO and 7.62×39 and the 10/22 l. I haven’t been paying attention to guns much. With the country on fire. I guess my Marlin 444 from about late eighties early nineties will be at a premium. I just reloaded 100 rounds in 240gr. I wish they had 265gr. but all out for a while. I have plenty anyway. Well I hope you finally get the 444 you wanted for some time. Glad to know you back and OK. Enjoy your day. Glad to see you back. Great information as well.

  10. The Midcoast of Maine, The Way Life Should Be ! on November 16, 2021 at 10:18 pm

    I love my Rem Model 14 35cal!!!! big punch they need to bring back more .35 rem guns!

  11. Light Weight on November 16, 2021 at 10:20 pm

    I saw that interview. I have a Model 60…got it in ’78/’79. I’m waiting for a .357 lever gun.

  12. Alexander Gennaro on November 16, 2021 at 10:20 pm

    Now that Henry is making the side gate marlin is no great loss and could care less what Ruger does!

  13. Bill Baker on November 16, 2021 at 10:21 pm

    Ruger resurrecting Marlin is some of the best industry news in years.

  14. matthew gaeta on November 16, 2021 at 10:21 pm

    I hope the 41 Magnum comes back around even if it’s a special run. That would pair off great with the last 41s that Ruger put out. A huge market I think they need to tap into is the 454 casull and maybe 460 Smith & Wesson mag if it can handle the pressure. If u need I may have a 444 to borrow or compare with the new one when it arrives. Great videos btw

  15. Mark Roster on November 16, 2021 at 10:24 pm

    Good try, But I recognized all the tattoos 🙂

  16. Woodman on November 16, 2021 at 10:25 pm

    Good stuff as always, I might have to finally buy myself a Marlin 35 Rem. to complement my Henry 35.

  17. Britspence381 on November 16, 2021 at 10:25 pm

    Enjoyed the video, good info, love Marlins!

  18. Rooster344 on November 16, 2021 at 10:26 pm

    Thank you for the update.
    Love the NA lol 🤣😆🤣😆

  19. Cmdr Ed Straker of S H A D O on November 16, 2021 at 10:28 pm

    Oh Great news about Return Quality Marlins under Ruger’s ownership but for being a good YouTuber and give credit were credit is due . As apposed to repackaging the info as your own story or just cutting and pasting video clips without giving the original creator credit. 👍 Good news all the way around

  20. Bill Welsh on November 16, 2021 at 10:29 pm

    I missed the GT interview thanks for the info. 444 Marlin. Doing the happy dance here. Thanks George.

  21. Arthur LaGasse on November 16, 2021 at 10:31 pm

    I wonder if the 450 marlin will make an appearance?

  22. rogue on November 16, 2021 at 10:34 pm

    Put me on the list for a 444 Marlin. I’m sure it will be a long one…

  23. John Brown on November 16, 2021 at 10:34 pm

    when you get the 444 do a brush video with it . I like my 444 in the 336 shoots real nice but it does have a kick when I try to bench it

  24. Charles Eye on November 16, 2021 at 10:35 pm

    Looking forward to seeing a "Rulin" class lever-action.

    Edit: _Especially_ a new .444! I have two sons, both with minds towards getting their great-grandfather’s. If these turn out to be quality rifles, maybe one of them will settle for getting mine, instead.

  25. Dan O'Neill on November 16, 2021 at 10:37 pm

    I want a 45 Lc Cowboy 20"

  26. Charles Eye on November 16, 2021 at 10:37 pm

    Sometimes ad placement/timing is too good. I was looking up from my screen. You chambered a round. An ad for a videogame started and the first sound was full-auto fire. My head spun, trying to process what just happened and how you did that with a lever gun. Good times.

  27. Steve Andulsky on November 16, 2021 at 10:38 pm

    Well, I’m happy to hear that Marlin rifles will continue.
    I’ve been out of the loop for a while because of a couple of surgeries, but I never heard what became of that old Ruger Single Six that needed all the work. Were your efforts successful, or will it simply be forgotten and become a safe queen??? I’m really anxious to know if it became a tack driver.
    Thank you.

  28. J D on November 16, 2021 at 10:40 pm

    As a handloader of 44 mag, I’ve always wanted to try a 444 Marlin. Not sure if my shoulder would like it though.

  29. Ermine Alox on November 16, 2021 at 10:41 pm

    Great up to date info. Whoever comes out with a 500 SW lever will make box cars full of money. More than the drug cartels combined. I’m 72 and waiting patiently. Please hurry!!! I don’t know how many Marlins I have and don’t care to count. Always looking for the next one. Great inspirational video.

  30. M E on November 16, 2021 at 10:43 pm

    This is the most exciting news of the year!.
    Seriously don’t know which to get first.

  31. Kirk Boswell on November 16, 2021 at 10:44 pm

    👍. What you cover here, is close to what I ascertained right after the sale went through. I didn’t expect the model 60 to be included, though. I thought it was going to be allowed to fade away.
    The problem with Remington made Marlins was quite simple. Remington didn’t hire all the Marlin line workers for some unknown reason, and the result was a couple of years of "problem" guns.

  32. scott cooksey on November 16, 2021 at 10:45 pm

    Good info,, thanks for the update. Mr. NA has a very difficult voice to understand.

  33. Brian Searles on November 16, 2021 at 10:46 pm

    It would seem that Ruger intends to follow the same route as FN Herstal when they bought Winchester to add to Browning. I would have been more surprised if Ruger didn’t bring back the Model 60, it’s more money in their pocket. As for the micro-grove, how many centerfire models still used it? All this good news will probably add up to rifles which will go up in price. That’s OK as long as Marlins quality in build/materials goes up as well.

  34. 4440pvc on November 16, 2021 at 10:47 pm

    All my Marlins are pre safety JMs did you know the first year 1895s 45/70s 1972 were Ballard rifling. Also after firing my friend’s 444 carbine back in the day I declared myself a woosee and never did get one go figure..

  35. Buffalo's Outdoors on November 16, 2021 at 10:48 pm

    Thanks for the news and clarification. Can’t wait to see these Ruger/Marlins.

  36. Frank Ladd on November 16, 2021 at 10:48 pm

    I notice you have added a peep sight and the open rear sight. I’m interested in why you left the open sight on. Does it interfere with using the peep at all. I’m adding a peep to my rifle and wonder if I should leave the original site on was well, but I thought most people took them off and put a filler in the dovetail. Thanks!

  37. Chris Gabbert on November 16, 2021 at 10:51 pm

    I don’t own any Marlins but I have a couple of Rugers .

  38. In Gratitude I Am on November 16, 2021 at 10:51 pm

    I sure hope the Take Down variants become a regular offering across the board.

  39. Mark Myers on November 16, 2021 at 10:52 pm

    I know it’s blasphemy but I would trade precious body parts for marlin to make a 1894 in flatnosed standard pistol cartridges. (40sw, 10mm, 45acp, 357sig)

  40. jeremy74pow on November 16, 2021 at 10:52 pm

    I wonder if they will continue to make the 336 in 35 Rem or just try to kill it off like most companies do. Also the 1894 should be chambered in 327 and 41 mag also.

  41. Bill Dye on November 16, 2021 at 10:52 pm

    When I heard new assistant I thought Good Brittany Spears has a new job. Like the video & hope what they promise comes true along with possibly a Model 39. 👍

  42. Brent Worls on November 16, 2021 at 10:54 pm

    Thanks for the synopsis. Can’t wait to get a brand new .30-30 or .444. I wonder what twist rates they’ll use on the .44 to stabilize heavy bullets…time will tell. Maybe Ruger will reintroduce a magazine-fed lever again. Wonder what the future holds for the Marlin Express proprietary rounds…

  43. Dogbone13 on November 16, 2021 at 10:54 pm

    Fun and informative video George. Thanks. I’ve had a Marlin Model 60 and Model 25N for many years, but never owned any Marlin lever guns. I’m a big fan of Ruger, but none of the announcements concerning Marlin moving forward peaked my interest in the "new" Marlin lever guns introductions. But that’s just me. Is NA your alter ego? 😉

  44. Walter Kurtz on November 16, 2021 at 10:58 pm

    What does this Ruger acquisition mean for Blackhawks pistols? I have been waiting over a year for NMRBH. Is Ruger still putting BHks on the back burner for production. I have written Ruger and get nothing but the company line of supply and demand. Have you heard anything Sir?

  45. paul cupach on November 16, 2021 at 10:59 pm

    Naturally Asspirated

  46. EastTexan on November 16, 2021 at 10:59 pm

    George, or should I say, NA, great video full of good info. It’s great that Ruger/Marlin is bringing back the Marlin line of lever guns. It’s the quality that matters. I’m expecting initial rifles to be way better than the Remington fiasco of a few years ago. I’m sure everyone that is a big fan of Marlin is expecting it too. Young people don’t care about anything much less a real quality lever gun lol.

  47. Rydeman on November 16, 2021 at 11:01 pm

    Does this mean they’re also dropping the cross bolt safety? Sorry if you mentioned it and I didn’t catch it.

  48. Don Thursby on November 16, 2021 at 11:01 pm

    Wow, a talking hat like on Harry Potter. Hey, got a name for your assistant… Harry. Thanks for the vid.

  49. Les Sage on November 16, 2021 at 11:02 pm

    hahahahahah great job sir i missed the 444 news too awsome sir thanks to you an n.a. for the great showing

  50. Terry Schiller on November 16, 2021 at 11:04 pm

    Hi George, very good video that editing with NA LoL was awesome! Looking forward to seeing those new Marlins. Nice to have ya back George hope your done with the dentist.
