    I heard it through the grapevine Remington-Marlin is working on coming out with a revolver is there any truth to this or just rumors? :confused:

    If true, you would think that there would be some news out of the SHOT show this week.

    I'd be afraid to use it...with that barrel droop problem they are having you shoot yourself in the foot.

    Maybe a revolving carbine.

    I'd be into that. I prefer revolvers.

    Wouldn't it be nice to see a quality American-made Remington 1875 or 1890? I personally don't see how they could produce those guns at a reasonably competitive price. Look at the price of a Colt-made SAA compared to the Italian clones.

    I've been toting a German SAA clone for about 25 years. It's been the very best gun I've ever owned. I recently tuned it up with Colt parts and it's shooting like new again. It's the older cousin of the current EAA Bounty Hunter, and for the price I wouldn't touch a Colt. I simply can't afford that much for a working gun. I'd be interested in a Marlin revolver, but not for 1000 bucks.

    I'm with you Duster, a grand+ is just way to much for a working gun. If they could produce a decent gun and get it down around $750 (ouch!), they might have a marketable item.

    A gun dealer told my, he was told it will be a revolver.
