And folks LOVED 'em!!! Must've not met the green-eyeshade qualification of price pt-vs-cost. But now that they can divide that off onto Marlin.....

Just reminded me I would love to see em start reproducing the 1894/22 magnum version of the gun. Heard Marlin made around 12,000 in that rimfire version. Big bucks when one can find a used one.

It seems like the fun, simple 22lr plinkers have all gone that road. Yes, there are cheap Ruger 10/22's, but the last thing you want to impose upon a kid is those magazine issues. When they work, great! When they don't work, frustrating. I've got an old 1972-ish Ithaca Saddlegun 22lr levergun that I bought brand new in about 1974. Has never failed me a single time, and still shoots great. I remember shooting 22's in Boy Scouts, and it was something my Dad used to take us out to do on a Friday night. Now everything is either "tacticool", bling'ed-out-the-yingyang, or died off. There isn't just the fun in a bunch of 22's anymore for 90% of the urban kids.

So perhaps the $1M question is what is the consensus bet on the first Ruger-Marlin? And when?
