Ruger’s Gameplan for Marlin:

Ruger’s Gameplan for Marlin:

We’ve been trying to get the ‘scoop’ on Ruger’s plans for the re-release of the Marlin firearms line (acquired last fall). So far, the best we can do is speculate…..but based on what we know about the market, manufacturing, etc, here’s what we think we’ll see from Ruger later in 2021

I expect Shotshow 2022 to be the big ‘kickoff’……


  1. Halfdollar 86 on November 22, 2021 at 10:20 pm

    I think we will for sure the Marlin model 60.

  2. Omar Guevara on November 22, 2021 at 10:21 pm

    We appreciate all the latest updates on these issues. Thank you for your patriotism.

  3. Panther Martin77 on November 22, 2021 at 10:22 pm

    The American way, take something good n turn it into a pile of shit just to max out profits.

  4. Glock Fanboy on November 22, 2021 at 10:23 pm

    Ruger always has a plan n Remington had no direction or passion!!! That’s what you get when corporate fatcats don’t Do anything but filling their purses first!!!!

  5. BARaymond1006 on November 22, 2021 at 10:24 pm

    Great channel! If it wasn’t for you I’d still wouldn’t know about CZ and Colt and Marlin and Ruger! Great info and great video length. Looking forward to seeing what actually ends up happening with each company and product lines and quality.

  6. Diogenes on November 22, 2021 at 10:26 pm

    Gave up years ago writing to Ruger to re-introduce the # 3 single shot to no avail. Income at the time they came out prevented getting one. Now I would buy one of every caliber they would produce. C’mon Ruger, give it a try!

  7. chopsddy3 on November 22, 2021 at 10:26 pm

    The pistol caliber rifles will sell like hotcakes. Go Ruger! (Henry’s are really nice, but they don’t have the receiver loading gates. )I’m starting to save for one today.

  8. Cl Blevins on November 22, 2021 at 10:30 pm

    I have a Marlin 3o 30 how much is it worth

  9. Peter Poel on November 22, 2021 at 10:30 pm

    Sold my Remlin .44 after it bound up again so bad it needed a gunsmith. I’d love one that worked and love a Ruger firearm!

  10. MattyLight30 on November 22, 2021 at 10:32 pm

    Hopefully we don’t see $1,000 leverguns.

  11. Randy Schaff on November 22, 2021 at 10:34 pm

    This will turn out well.
    Up here in Canada 🇨🇦 We have many many Rem. 783’s which are an excellent rifle reasonably priced. A game harvesting tool🤠

  12. BRI336 ALBANY on November 22, 2021 at 10:35 pm

    Will the .444 , .450 Marlin, 45-70 stay with us? I don’t want to see their rifles looking cheap.

  13. The last Minuteman on November 22, 2021 at 10:37 pm

    I would assume Ruger would retain the high end finishes as that would be the whole point of one company acquiring another. Have Marlin be their high end brand to Rugers more affordable economical brand. Just as Lincoln is to Ford and Lexus is to Toyota. But we will see I guess.

  14. Jim Widener on November 22, 2021 at 10:37 pm

    Where are your facts. All I hear are opinions. Just the facts ma’am.!

  15. Mark Norwood on November 22, 2021 at 10:37 pm

    In My Opinion, considering Ruger’s reputation for Quality, the Marlin Firearms are in Very Good Hands.👍

  16. 1guyin10 on November 22, 2021 at 10:38 pm

    Both the model 60 and the 795 are featured on the new Marlin Firearms website. They clearly intend to continue both models.

  17. Charlie Gibson on November 22, 2021 at 10:39 pm

    Marlin will soon be junk just like Ruger

  18. B Laws on November 22, 2021 at 10:41 pm

    I want a 350 legend lever gun.

  19. Trent Taylor on November 22, 2021 at 10:42 pm

    What do you think will happen to the prices of older Marlin rifles, will they go up or down now ???

  20. Dr Kalowski on November 22, 2021 at 10:42 pm

    Love my 336 and model 60

  21. freakindawgen on November 22, 2021 at 10:44 pm

    Funny Ruger is interested in lever rifles. They made a few and dropped them.

  22. George Theocles on November 22, 2021 at 10:45 pm

    Model 39?

  23. cliftt on November 22, 2021 at 10:48 pm

    Would love a .22 lever action.

  24. Kyle Michaels on November 22, 2021 at 10:48 pm

    Marlin hasn’t built highly polished high grade walnut guns since the early 1900’s except for rare limited editions. Most of Marlins production 1895’s 1894’s, and 336’s were matte blue with matte walnut stocks, sometimes a rare glossy stock. The late JM Marlins and some of the late Remlins were very good. Ruger builds extremely high quality firearms and I would expect the Marlins from Ruger to be every bit the fit and finish of the JM Marlins.

    Also there is no chance of an AWB let alone confiscation, please stop spreading that B.S. and fear mongering. The people will never let that happen. Who is going to go door to door confiscating so called assault weapons when they know they will be killed?

  25. Addam Deon on November 22, 2021 at 10:49 pm

    The 1894 is a rifle not a pistol it is chambered for 30-30 and things like that the 1892 is made for pistol calibers

  26. bm phil on November 22, 2021 at 10:49 pm

    Bill Ruger was a traitor to the gun industry by backing the Clinton gun ban.
    The number 1 ruger, the auto 22s and the single actions are about all ruger has done that’s smart.
    Their self defense pistols are jokes, their older bolt actions were pretty good but had weird aspects like the angled recoil lugs.

  27. Chris Floyd on November 22, 2021 at 10:50 pm

    Ruger please keep the 35rem in the 336!
    1894’s in 454 casual and 480 and the Smith mags if possible?
    A 357rem maximum would be a dream!

  28. big ben on November 22, 2021 at 10:52 pm

    Agree on the lever actions.

    The model 60 was the best selling 22 rifle in history. It feeds differently than the Ruger . It can be made cheaply. So I would think that would be likely for Ruger.

    As for a large number of calibers I agree it makes sense to test the waters on 30-30 before offering 32 Win for example.

    I think the market is still there even with Henry strongly in the game. However what it will come down to is can they make them better than Remington and possibly as well or better than Marlin. This will be the largest factor and driving force . If they are well made they will be well be received much like the Miroku Winchesters which can hardly be made fast enough. That will determine calibers offered , models offered and possibly even better finished stuff . In short its in Rugers hands. If they listen to bean counters instead of the market customers they will flop. If they do it right on fitment , materials and function they won’t make them fast enough.

  29. Steve St. martin on November 22, 2021 at 10:52 pm

    So Ruger is going to fuck up marlin, I just ordered a New Python let’s hope CZ will get Colt going strong

  30. bgtx on November 22, 2021 at 10:52 pm

    It will not be hard for Ruger to produce a better rifle than Marlin was making in the last decade. I have a 336 and its a complete piece of shit.

  31. Daniel Bryan on November 22, 2021 at 10:53 pm

    Why would you give credence to A.R. 15’s being illegal to own or manufacture and that’s why we need lever actions?? That kind of talk makes it sound like oh well they may just go ahead and take them from us

  32. Dan Thompson on November 22, 2021 at 10:53 pm

    Henry customer service is unbelievable

  33. Jake piemme on November 22, 2021 at 10:56 pm

    First vid I watched of yours. Really good info and presented nicely. U had me at hello lol.

  34. Gregory Hall on November 22, 2021 at 10:59 pm

    Sure would like to see Ruger continue production of Marlin’s line of 22LR/22Win mag bolt action magazine and tube fed rifles—sad to think that there are no remaining manufacturers (at least that I am aware of) of a 22 bolt action tube magazine rifle—which allows option of using 22LR or 22short (or 22L which seems like is scarcely made anymore) for plinking/target shooting or small game hunting. Wish I had bought a Marlin XT-22TR a few years ago before Remington/Marlin demise.

  35. Noble man Raised in a better time on November 22, 2021 at 11:01 pm

    Why are they bankrupt with all this current demand fir guns? Also i hope their microgroove rifling stays. Thanks

  36. Steve on November 22, 2021 at 11:02 pm

    I think they should reproduce the 39A in a high end presentation, it’s been an excellent piece!

  37. Larry Funk on November 22, 2021 at 11:03 pm

    Folks pining for new 39A’s better be willing to drop at least $800 (or perhaps 1000) on one. A well finished 39 will cost more than a similarly finished 336, and perhaps more than an 1894 to make.

    I’m apprehensive about Ruger buying Marlin. A big part of the problems with Remington building Marlins stemmed from the difference in design philosophy. Marlin lever guns are 19th century designs, with a lot of irregular shapes formed from hammer forgings. Remington ditched that technology in the 1950’s/1960’s, and they weren’t set up to deal with it anymore. Ruger has their own way of doing things, based on investment castings. IDK; perhaps the new transition will go smoothly. Remington also claimed that the engineering specs on all of the older Marlins required updating; hopefully Ruger can make good use of that legwork.

  38. Scubaguy007 on November 22, 2021 at 11:03 pm

    The Marlin model 60 can’t compare to a Ruger 10/22. My first gun was a Marlin 60, I really liked it, but I gave it to a former friend of mine. Mainly because I have two 10/22s and they are 10 times the gun the model 60 is, or could hope to be. I think that Ruger should focus on the lever guns and forget all the others. That’s just my thoughts.

  39. MrStrollerisme on November 22, 2021 at 11:03 pm

    I have an old Marlin model 60 and I love it. I bought it Kmart back in ’83. From what I have seen over the years that gun has gotten well cheap. As for lever actions I still like my again Old Winchester model 94, very faithful. Oh yeah my 60 was spot on at 100 yards out of the box.

  40. Monty Crain on November 22, 2021 at 11:05 pm

    Man I hope they bring back the 39A back in Rifle and carbine. Maybe they could drop the cross bolt safety too. A 989 M-2 semi auto 22lr would probably do well as its close similarity to a M-1 carbine could make it popular in today’s market. And with pistol cal carbines popular right now a new Camp carbine in 45acp and 10mm would be nice maybe set up for Glock 20&21 mags. A wider variety of 1894 calibers would be cool, both larger and smaller than in the near past. A 10mm 1894, maybe 32/20 or 32h&r mag, 25/20 and definitely a 22 Hornet. A 480 Ruger would be pretty cool paired with a 5” Super Redhawk. The barrel on these could be a big draw too if they use the same quality as on their American and Precision series rifles. Too,I hope they completely leave New England to more Patriotic States.

  41. Nursery Enterprises on November 22, 2021 at 11:08 pm

    Amazing how we have so many firearms companies going belly-up while we, at the same time, have record firearms sales. Hmmm

  42. Glenn Cantley on November 22, 2021 at 11:09 pm

    I’m so disappointed that the craftsmanship of firearms seems to be a dying art.

  43. Dale Searcy on November 22, 2021 at 11:09 pm

    Lever guns could make a strong comeback if new gun restrictions happen.
    It would be nice to see an affordable lever gun in pistol calibers.

  44. Jeffrey Bishop on November 22, 2021 at 11:12 pm

    I love your program. It is clear concise and honest. Bravo 👏🏻

  45. Robert Bianco on November 22, 2021 at 11:12 pm

    I for One, Cannot wait!!! I see myself buying at least 3 different calibers!
    Very Excited about the rifles to come!

  46. OPEN YOUREYES on November 22, 2021 at 11:13 pm

    I know that Ruger will do a quality job with the Marlin offerings , whatever they are !

  47. James Hereford on November 22, 2021 at 11:14 pm

    I know everybody has their own opinion Ruger is number one in my book and like their motto says, rugged reliable firearms. I own several ruger’s and I am satisfied with them all.

  48. Guy Fox on November 22, 2021 at 11:15 pm

    Henry still has next to no standing in the cowboy action shooting community, we’re Marlin verry much dose. I hope Marlin will see the value in targeting that market there now as the SASS ruger revolvers have been so popular.

  49. uglydog311 on November 22, 2021 at 11:16 pm

    How did Remington go broke during the greatest gun purchasing event in history ? That level of incompetence should be prosecuted .

  50. C G on November 22, 2021 at 11:16 pm

    I live in Australia and I bought a brand new Marlin dark series 45-70. Had to send it back to the factory in America to get repaired before I even got a shot away because when you would chamber a round the cartridge would get stuck half in the magazine and half in the receiver. I was pissed off because its a brand new rifle and it took months to get it over there and back but now it works flawlessly so I am happy.
