I found this forum while researching Marlin lever guns that I was interested in purchasing. I think it was on Bing. I wanted to make sure I knew where Marlin was headed before I got back into lever guns too far.
I was actually researching buying a Ruger 10/22, when I came across several posts claiming accuracy was better with the Marlins. So I started looking closer at Marlin, and eventually found MarlinForum, and the rest...is history.
