    3. MARLIN FIREARMS- HISTORY

    In 1870, John Marlin started the Marlin Firearms company in North Haven, Connecticut.  Some of John Marlin’s early firearms included his own revolvers, derringers and Ballard style rifles and lever action rifles.  Marlin has since produced bolt action, slide action, and semi-automatic rifles, shotguns, revolvers and pistols.  They have also produced submachineguns (such as the UD M42) and machineguns mounted on military aircraft in World War 1.  Annie Oakley was known to prefer Marlin rifles.

    In the year 2000, Marlin acquired H&R 1871 (Harrington & Richarson).  In 2007, the Marlin Firearms company was acquired by Remington Arms.  In 2011, production was moved from the North Haven to Remington’s facility in Ilion, New York.  Marlin’s current offerings are as seen above with Models 1895, 336, 1894, 60, 795 and the XT series.

    6. MARLIN FIREARMS- FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

    -Does Marlin have a Custom Shop?

    YES!

    Craft your dream firearm from a choice of options that include caliber, barrel type, trigger pull weight, wood finish, engravings, inlays and more. Contact [email protected] or call 605-347-4686 for more information! Or contact one of our dealers listed here.

    -How can I order parts for my Marlin firearm?

    While we do not offer parts for all Marlin firearms, you may wish to contact your local dealer or call our parts department at 1-800-544-8892 M-F 9am-5pm EST. Schematics and part names can be found in your owner’s manual or you can download an owner’s manual through the following link here.

    -Is a longer or shorter magazine tube available for my rifle?

    The fit of the magazine tube corresponds with the dovetail cut in the bottom of the barrel for the magazine tube stud.  In order to replace the factory installed tube with a different length, this dovetail would need to be moved to match the length of the magazine tube being installed.  Marlin does not offer this service, but some qualified gunsmiths may perform this operation.

    -Are magazine capacity plugs available for my Marlin rifle?

    Local regulations may restrict the capacity you are allowed to legally load into your firearm.  This would require either the modification of the magazine tube to permanently restrict it , or the addition of a magazine plug similar to one used in a shotgun magazine.  Marlin does not offer a magazine tube plug, but one can easily be fabricated from a wooden dowel rod or other suitable material.  Installed between the magazine tube end plug and the follower, this should effectively limit the capacity to meet local regulations.

    -Trouble feeding LEVERevolution ammunition.

    Older Marlin lever action rifles may have trouble feeding Hornady’s LEVERevolution ammunition. The flat magazine followers used in older rifles will not allow the rounds to line up straight in the magazine tube and this can lead to feeding problems.  The magazine follower can be seen through the load spring on the side of the receiver.  If it is green or black in color, a new follower should correct the feeding problem. If it is red in color, the new style follower is already installed.  This change was made in production rifles beginning around 2006 and any new rifle will already have the correct magazine follower.

    -Are peep or tang sights available for my lever action rifle?

    While Marlin does not offer peep or tang sights, both Lyman and Williams Gun Sight Co. manufacture peep sights. Lyman offers a tang sight for many of our models.

    -Can a big loop finger lever be installed on my lever action rifle?

    Big loop finger levers can be installed on centerfire lever action rifles with pistol grip style stocks.  They do require fitting by a qualified gunsmith and are restricted to FFL licensed shops.  Big loop levers will not fit rifles with straight grip style stocks.
