I feel if they come up with new Marlins that cost anywhere above $700...
I think they won't be hot sellers like they could be if they sold for under $500.
There wouldnít be much quality if it co$ts less than $800-1K. Otherwise, youíll end up with lots of cheap plastic, and wood-to-metal fit that resembles a ledge you could parachute off of. And plenty of sharp edges, with a crappy finishing attempt, not to mention a trigger that is gritty, and weighs more than a Sherman tank.
The solution is to offer two versions: Sanford & Sons, and then semi-custom from their own in-house shop with upgrades.

That's what Marlin has been doing since the '60s, with the Glenfield line, then later the 336W model.
Obviously not recently in California, but elsewhere, WalMart had the cheap model with press checkered birch for under $400. The upmarket 336C with real walnut stock was $600.

I see no problem with inexpensive models, so long as the action remains the same quality. This would be like Remington with the ADL, SPS, BDL, and CDL. Same action, higher-grade finish, i. e. it's a prettier gun.

Were Ruger to use a quality wood that may not have a "burl walnut type" figure, such as birch, to make affordable leverguns, I'd be all for that. That was the idea behind the American, which up until a few years ago, was a very compelling bargain for a quality huntin' rifle. I remember seeing them at $350-ish at Walmart on a regular basis.

I would be happy to spend an extra 50-75% for a Marlin of higher quality.

Now that the Henry lever actions have side loading gates on them, that's basically what they are--A superior, higher-quality alternative to the Marlin. You should check them out if you haven't already.

I've owned, in total and at various times, three Marlins and two Henries. I now own zero Marlins and two Henries.

That is only an opinion.

While the Henry is improving for sure, I'd still rather own and shoot a properly-made Marlin, of which examples do exist. Where they do not they may be put right in most cases.

With Ruger now manufacturing Marlin lever rifles and carbines, we can be somewhat certain of a return of the quality-made Marlin.

Just mho.

Iíll be taking delivery of a Henry 45-70 in the next couple of weeks.

I really like the styling and handling of my Marlin 1894 44 mag, but I really donít like the clunky furniture with poor fit, the front sight that came loose the first time I shot it, and the boogered up screw from the factory. The metal finish leaves a bit to be desired as well, but thatís the least of my concerns.

If Ruger can rectify these issues Iíll gladly sell my current Marlin and pick up a new one, even if it costs a few hundred more.

I donít own the caliber, but Iíd be really interested in an 1894 in .327 Federal Mag, and a Vaquero in the same. It would be a fun set.

That said, itís already tough to swallow what people are asking for a JM stamped 1894c. Want a second one, but I tend to be a cheap bastard.

I own a couple of 327's. That is absolute hot rod of a caliber. Really hard to find nowadays, but, a real fire breather.

Same here brother. I've had a box of Federal. 327 ammo sitting around for 8 years.

Henry has a/some in .327 but no side loaders yet.

Iíve had other levers, and Iím honestly not interested. My 1894c is by far my favorite gun. I should have picked up more when they were cheaper. My dream is that my cousin will sell me his 1894CB. Everyone will be mad, but Iíve been dying to cut that fat octagon barrel back to 16Ē.

What's going on my friend?

I talked to Chris yesterday. He said he was going to put us up in his new trailer and he would sleep in the back of his truck.

Be ready, the weather, she is a changing.

I'm looking forward to 1895SBL's showing up on store shelves again. There's a real feral T-Rex problem in socal.

Yee HAW! That's right. Best have one or two SBLs standing by!

One may never be too prepared.

Going out to Apple Valley in Nov to another friend's house, but, thinking we[MLC] can get out to the desert before that. Hopefully!

Well before November, amigo! and perhaps by the end of the month even if for one last-minute morning. My little sleeper/galley trailer isn't near finished, though.

I agree that I'm hopeful Ruger returns to the quality of JM Marlins. Two of my three Marlins were JM (a 336 and an 1895) and you could definitely tell they had that old-world build quality to them.
