  • Marlin's unique .410 Lever Action Shotgun

    If asked to name perhaps the most popular lever action rifles in history, odds are Marlin would top that short list of answers. The thing is, did you know that Marlin made a shotgun version of the carbine? Better yet, that it was in sweet-shooting .410? If not then keep reading... The classic Model 410 In 1929, Marlin took their standard Model 1883 lever action rifle and reworked it as a shotgun. To do this they had to lengthen the loading port, modify the tubular magazine, and replace the...
  • Refinishing stock and effect on value

    I have a Marlin Model 50. This was an uncles gun that was sold to my father in the late 30's. It was passed to me by my father and used by myself and my sons. We now know it is a very limited edition gun, prototype of the action used by Annie Oakley in her trick shouting. I wander want to know if I refinish the stock will this devalue the gun. It is very chipped and scratched, I just had the action cleaned and have learned it was an action that can be converted from Semi Auto to Full Auto....
  • Ultimate Marlin brush gun: The Model 62 Levermatic

    For a brief time in the 1960s, Marlin recast its vintage cowboy action rifle line into something a little more responsive and, using state of the art chamberings, was on the cutting edge of lever gun technology. Sadly, it wasn't to last. The Levermatic family Marlin firearms engineering guru Tom Robinson was issued patent number 2,823,480 Feb 18, 1956 for the Levermatic receiver, a system that he developed several years before from the Kessler Arms Company's "Lever-Matic" shotgun. What was...
  • The Suppressed Marlin Project

    Marlin has long been a name in the 22-rifle business and their new XT22 series comes out of the box ready for a suppressor. With that in mind, we here at Marlin Forum thought what better than to do a suppressor build. Why a suppressed 22 rifle? Suppressors most obviously save hearing and allow the sportsman to hunt without the aid of in-ear or over-ear hearing protection. Since the ears are free, this increases situational awareness and makes the hunter both safer and more alert. Since...

  2. The shotgun that hits like a rifle: Marlin's 512 Slugmaster

    When the sabot slug hit the U.S. market in the late 1960s, it provided impetus for shotgun makers to design guns able to maximize the potential of these new rounds that could provide rifle-like accuracy out to a football field or more, effectively doubling the reach of the standard scattergun. This led to the Model 512. Marlin's flirtation with slug-guns Connecticut-based Marlin had been in the shotgun biz going all the way back to the 1890s. As the industry evolved so did the company,...
  3. Timeline of the fight to defend the Right to Keep and Bear Arms (Infographic)

    First framed by founding father James Madison back in 1789, the fundamental rights protected under the Second Amendment of the Constitution to keep and bear arms have been under attack for centuries and withstood the test of time with both wins and losses for those who defend gun rights. With the current administration's efforts to paint certain classes of firearms as being, "not family heritage or family tradition," while advocating a ban in the same breath, it appears that the war is still...
  4. Cleaning and maintaining your rifles

    Marlin has long produced bolt-action rifles culminating with the MR-7 and later X7 series today as well as legacy semi-autos. However, keeping your rifle in tip-top condition is up to you. The primarily area of attacking the burnt carbon, metal shavings, and corrosive primer chemicals left behind by every range or field session is the barreled action. With a safe and unloaded weapon, with no brass or ammo around, remove your bolt and set it to the side. Next, use your cleaning rod in the...
  5. Marlin's compact triple four, the Model 444P Outfitter

    Marlin has long been the king of lever action rifles, and without a doubt the .444 Marlin has been one of the most popular heavy rounds of the last half century, which could mean that the briefly made Outfitter model with its abbreviated barrel is the compact king of the woods. The Design of the .444 Marlin Round Taking a fat, wide-necked 57mm long case (almost as long as a 7mm Mauser's); the Marlin Company mashed a .429" round on top to create a moose of a cartridge. It was longer by...
