Rather have the .22 in stainless in a box that said Marlin Mountie--I mean if I had my druthers!!!! I doubt it'll happen at Marlin-but if this one takes off-they may make a run in stainless-they have before. Love to hear those LR sliding down the tube!!

I always liked the Marlin action better than Winchester or anybody else. I had a model 39a one time and I loved it. Here I had bought it off a youngman. Well he forgot to tell me he stole it. I took it down to the Police station and turned it in as soon as I found out. I didn't buy any used guns after that for a long time and still don't like to.

I agree about the Marlins. I had a 39m, and a couple of 1894's in .357 and .44. Should have kept them - they're real pricey any more. That's the only reason that Taurus caught my eye. Street price would probably be $100 less.

I'm a Marlin guy too, but you can sure see the lineage from the Taurus 62 Pump ( Winchester originally ) and, credit where it's due, this could be a real winner as a takedown in a carbine length barrel. And, certainly, other calibers to follow-hopefully!
