Default Curious bout a marlin

I was in the pawn shop yesterday and seen the price on a rifle it was $260 it was bolt action and rolled my eyes another remington 770 i thought nope it was a Marlin never heard of it i think x7 possibly. These rifles worth a damn, would like a range report if its good id possibly find a 270 caliber one.

From what I know about the XL(long action)XS(short action) Marlin series of rifles, is that they're very good rifles. Being a caliber of 270, it'll be the XL model of Marlin. Suppose to have very good accuracy along lines of Remington 700 and Savages. Don't own one, but have been looking around for one used in my area. That price is very good, IF it's a true Marlin. To be sure of one part, is to look at barrel(on both sides) to see if it has the "initals" of JM on left side of barrel near the action. If it doesn't, but has the "initals" of REM on right side of barrel, then it's a Marlington. Can't stop there, because now you need to look at serial number to make sure it wasn't under Remington's takeover/build time period between 2007 and 2010 where Remington used Marlin's barrels, before they had the proper barrel stamps. Go to Marlin Owners Group for serial numbers to get lots of info and also check out the proper XL/XS forum page to get more info on these series of rifles.

The x7 marlins are every bit as good as a savage period I have 4 an every one is dead accurate less than a half inch at 100. Anyone that says they arent have never had nor shot one period

Patrick,

I am a Remington fan. But Marlin makes a darn good rifle. I think retail on the X-7 new runs around $300. They also have a good trigger in them now!
I would not be afraid to buy one. And 270 is a great hunting cal. Every Marlin I have had are very accurate including my little Marlin 917-V 17 HMR I now own.
Marlin has made barrels on the QT for other companies for years!

If it is a marlin then it will say marlin on the side of the reciever. Also it will have a red firing indicator that sticks out from under the back off the bolt.

I love my Marlin XS7 in 308. Very accurate. The factory trigger and recoil pad are awesome.
