The social media accounts for Marlin Firearms all reactiviated this past week, this may signal a return of the legendary firearms manufacture that specialises in lever action arms.
‘We’re back! Stay tuned for weekly updates on the return of Marlin” and “Long Live the Lever Gun.” These were what the posts read, nothing too crazy but consider that this was the first set of posts since 2016.
The return of Marlin comes after the brand was purchased by Ruger. Ruger purchased the brand for $28.3 million at a federal bankruptcy auction last summer when all of Remington Outdoors assets were being sold off.
While Marlin has made everything from handguns to machine guns in its lifetime, the company is famous for the lever-action rifles that it produces. These lever-action guns have now been prioritized for production by Ruger. It’s reasonable to assume that we will see a new Marlin lever-action rifle in the near future, Guns.com believes that we may see one get revealed at the NRA’s Annual event in Houston, Texas.
