New Marlins - Mid-December

Based on this interview with Chris Killoy (Ruger President/CEO), it is sounding like the first Ruger produced Marlins will be shipping in mid-December with the 1895 SBL in 45-70 as the initial offering.

Also sounding like the 336 and 1894 models will follow thereafter.

This is great news! I'll be looking out for an 1894 in 357 magnum!

Just went looking for news literally two hours ago.

Thanks for the update.

Looking forward to a 336 in 30-30. Then, who knows?

Did not watch the video, did he mention anything about increasing quality control over what Remlin did?

It's really just a podcast with a logo to stare at for 18 minutes. No picture of the gun...wtf?

He mentioned that they did a part by part review of the production process and engineered in quality controls as part of this effort as the Marlins will be produced differently than their standard manufacturing processes (e.g. are sticking with forged parts rather than investment casting in cases where the original were forged). Barrels will use the Ruger hammer forge process.

Ditto. I've been wanting an 1894 in .357 and threaded for a long time now. Maybe in the next year or two I can finally get one. Hell, so long as the initial reviews are okay-ish (not a long string of issues), if I can get one on order I don't mind waiting.

At least I am pretty confident Ruger will stand behind any issues if the initial ones have some teething issues. Hopefully they've invested a lot in QA and test production so they won't have teething issues of course.

He specifically mentioned .30-30 in the 336, then made mention of "more obscure caliber", with .444 mentioned specifically in the 1895.

No specific mention made of a 336 in 35 Remington. Not sure what that means.

Sounded like they plan to continue the Model 60 rimfire also.

Keeping Model 60 with the 10/22 in the Ruger lineup is a pretty solid plan to greatly expand their share of the semi-auto rimfire rifle market. Ruger seems to be pretty much the polar opposite of the pre-bankruptcy Remington in terms business decisions, IMO.
