    That could be really interesting. It would be great to have some real QC behind the marlin guns again.

    does that mean Ruger would have rights to NEF/H&R, since Marlin bought them shortly before being bought by Remington?  Could we see a rebirth of affordable single shots again?

    Could be cool! Them partner with Lipseys to do special runs of oh  38-55’s, 32-40’s and other fun calibers. Hell do a 357 what is worth the money and I’d buy one. Would love to see them being the old marlins back!

    Put me down for a 32-20 or 25-20 1894, fingers crossed Ruger does a few oddball releases.

    To play it a a bit more strange, and put it out to the universe, how about bringing back the old Marlin Levermatic?
     Stainless and synthetic, in 9mm initially and using glock/SR-9 Magazines.

    Sounds promising.  Then move them to Texas!

    Finally a real gun manufacturer gets ahold of a worth brand set.
    Accuracy: because white space between bullet holes drives me insane.

    Ya know. . .if you own the production lines to the two most popular semi auto .22's on Planet Earth, and they are kinda, sorta, but not really competing with each other due to very different designs, you'd be stupid not to keep making both of them.

    But yeah - this is REALLY good news to see a classic gun company owned by GUN PEOPLE again!
