    UPDATE Marlin Firearms to Close  Marlin-Firearms-logo

    UPDATE: I just spoke with some officials from
    The Freedom Group about the fate of Marlin and they told me that while
    the North Haven, Connecticut, plant is going to be shut down, they will
    continue to produce Marlin guns in the future.


    Where that's going to happen is still up in the air. I asked
    whether production will continue in the U.S. and was told that all
    options were on the table. That said, the company official told me they
    were going to retain the existing plant's tooling and would give the
    to-be-laid-off employees the opportunity to apply for work at the new
    facility, wherever that might be.



    The company says what it is certain about is the desire to keep
    producing Marlins and invest in the brand with no reduction in the
    variety of lever guns, bolt guns and rimfires.


    The timeline for the closing of the existing plant won't be set until a new location for Marlin is identified.

    The Model 94 might be back but it looks as though Marlin Firearms is set to close. There’s no way to sugarcoat this news: this really stinks.

    A 140-year-old icon is disappearing, 256 people are going to lose
    their jobs and lever-gun fans are going to have to content themselves
    with browsing the used-gun racks.

    For people like me, whose first image of a deer rifle was a lever
    gun, this is a black day. The virtues of a lever gun are many—they are
    handy, elegant, effective and, from the perspective of a gun nut, have
    great histories and are interesting examples of industrial design. It is
    discouraging to think that they can’t be produced in such a way as to
    be profitable—especially in light of the some of the advances Marlin
    achieved in partnership with Hornady Ammunition in recent years.

    Do lever guns still have a place in the field today? Without a doubt,
    yes. I used one this last fall up in Saskatchewan for deer and wouldn’t
    have been better served by any other rifle. The compact profile of my
    Marlin 336C was ideal for the tight confines of the blinds I hunted from
    and in .35 Rem. delivered plenty of oomph for those big-bodied Canadian
    bucks.

    The last new lever gun I purchased was a Marlin in .308 Marlin
    Express. I certainly didn’t need the rifle from any practical
    standpoint—I own a dozen other rifles that will do exactly what it
    can—but I appreciated the effort the company was making to keep their
    products relevant to modern hunters. I haven’t shot it much and my plan
    was to send it off to Jim West of Wild West Guns to have him convert it
    into one of his crazy-accurate takedowns. I still might do that but now
    I’m not so sure. I might want to keep it stock and pristine so that when
    I take it hunting it will remind me of what was best about Marlin in
    its final days.

    MARLIN FIREARMS CLOSING ITS DOORS
    Even if you do not own a gun you
    need to know this. I checked this out on "Truth or Fiction" who verified
    it. I trust them more than Snopes.

    Marlin Firearms is already closing
    its doors! They are doing it to us, America! This needs to be spread to
    all gun owners and sportsmen/women. We cannot rely on the media to inform us of these types of matters.

    Something
    you may not know that Is happening ... Who is buying the company’s
    manufacturing guns??? For the last several years a company called The
    Freedom Group has been buying up gun and ammunition manufacturers. Some
    of the companies are Bushmaster, Marlin, Remington, DPMS, Dakota Arms
    and H&R. Some people worry that this Freedom Group is going to
    control most of the firearms companies in the United States. If you
    control the manufacturers you can decide to stop selling to civilians.

    What a perfect way to control guns. Now if you do some digging you will see that The Freedom Group is owned by a company called Cerberus Capital Management. Guess who controls Cerberus??? GEORGE SOROS,
    Obama's chief financier!! He wants to restrict or ban all civilian
    guns. Please pass this on to all your freedom loving friends. This needs
    to come out. Why have we not heard about this in the "mainstream"
    media? I would think this would be BIG news. (Soros also owns Progressive Insurance). If you don't know who George Soros is, you need to do some research. This One-World Government atheist backed Obama with millions of dollars and Obama is a
    puppet on a string controlled by Soros.

    Send this to every gun owner you know!

    I'm passing this on to my nephew and others. We just had a rally (about 10,000) in Albany protesting the New York gun law that Cuomo signed into law recently. My nephew, who attended, said that the passion for gun rights is amazing! These people aren't going to stand by and let this happen.
