I just went to go buy a 22 rifle today and drove down to Delaware to get one. When I asked if the guy had any Marlins he told me that they were sold to Remington, and good luck trying to get one ! They're not even making them right now. Has anyone else heard this ?? If this is true we might be losing one of the greatest rifle makers of all time ! Man what next ? The only real, affordable, quality rifle maker now gone. I hope Remington doesn't change anything and keep the brand !
