Wonder if Remlins will survive this next bankruptcy...?

Would have been interesting if they sold to the Navajo Nation.....how that might work with U.S. gun laws and them being not technically the U.S....?

Don't know Doc......some years back they changed most of their management to young people.....the old heads were gun people and the young heads were college graduates....we all saw what came out of the factory after that....

My bud just bought 400 guns from Rem. that were in storage......these guns were all SHOT SHOW examples....

When Remlin acquired Marlin the CEO that toured the Marlin plant speaking to the long time employees told them that these Guns can be made by "anyone anywhere". They chose not to bring any experienced help to New York and the amount of junk they produced and shipped was unbelievable. They ruined what was left of the Marlin brand........ In My 48 years working I have seen this attitude countless times by self appointed Experts who could not hold any job in the plant. As long as the money tree gives them a bonus they keep their Head stuck UP where the sun never shines. now everyone involved with Remington is looking over there shoulder. A shame.

Tis a shame that the company that made 721's, 722's and great shotguns and bolt rifles got bought by penny pinching non shooting low lifes.... they po'ed alot peopke when they bought H&R and killed the accessory barrel program right away. Then the Handi-rifles soon after...
30/30 Winchester: Not accurate enough fer varmints, barely adequate for small deer; BUT In a 10" to 14" barrelled pistol; is good for moose/elk to 200 yards; ground squirrels to 300 metres

I dont call it a long Colt for the same reason I dont call it a short Auto!

It's sad that the real question isn't "Wonder if Remlins will survive this next bankruptcy...?"

But that it's become, "Does anyone care anymore?"

Shooters, "gun people", and scared housewives are purchasing guns in record numbers. There is nothing of worth left on the shelves.

More guns. Fewer shooters.

And a treasured old brand under new management looks for relief in bankruptcy.

When you wonder how a profitable firearms manufacturer fails, never forget that every child walking through the halls of a public school is taught:

"Your parents are WRONG, and guns are BAD".

I wonder if they would find enough value added to do that; there don't seem to be many active patents protected on leverguns designed in the 19th Century, so other than stamping "Marlin" on them, they could just make them anyway (and more or less they DO do that with some models); not sure these days that paying for the ability to so-stamp the receivers would matter:

a) new gun buyers wouldn't care - they are just looking for something that works, with no 'brand-nostalgia' involved.

b) old gun buyers wouldn't care - they wouldn't believe anything other than 'JM' vintage Marlins would be decent no matter what you tell them.

In my case, I have been happy with my last few Marlins, some in the 'Remlin' phase.

There's something you guys are missing......


Fact......hunting has taken a MAJOR nosedive. The demand has dropped to the point where demand is greatly diminished. The hunting guns out there last several lifetimes and there's enough to satisfy the market.

..........while I don't know the exact percentage, the overwhelmingly amount of new guns are directed at self defense and the military. These guns are easily manufactured on CNC machinery with little thought as to fit and finish like hunting guns are. Plastic is now a major component.......mold it and slap it on.

Hunting guns and a fair amount of long range target guns will soon be in the cottage industry of small producers. Remington and Marlin are dinosaurs. Colt is hanging on a thread and the only thing keeping them alive is military contracts from around the world.

Hunting went from a necessary endeavor to helping with the paycheck and now to a sport.....Rem.and Marlin did not adapt.---6

While Remington rushed to get the old Marlin in production and botched it, the new Marlins I was seeing locally were fine. Their investment in new drawings and tooling seemed to have paid off. I was planning to buy a .44 this summer, but the 1894 have become unavailable. I do hope they are revived.
