I mentioned this around three weeks ago and got flamed in some
places, but here is the word I got today from a large Marlin
Marlin has temporarily
suspended the production of the following lever action firearms:
suggest an alternate model to your customers during this suspended production
Production will resume once they fill the production requirements for
the rest of their lever action product line.
I do not know when production of
the above models will resume.
So there ya go guys, case closed
for a while, hope they get their act
