Savage One?[edit]

At the risk of sounding like a Marlin salesman, let me mention the Marlin 99. Introduced 1960, designed by Ewald Nichol, .22LR SL, has been sold in 35+variants, including the Glenfield 60 (Marlin's promo brand), 1 of fastest-selling sporting rifles ever, over 4 million sold (plus 2 million 60s)--& that was by 1982. See Harold Murtz, Gun Digest Treasury (DBI Books, 1994), p.195. On the off-chance somebody might find it useful, or interesting... Trekphiler 03:46, 3 September 2007 (UTC)

Marlin Model 99, Model 60, Model 70 and variations are a family whose direct ancestor is the Marlin 99. Marlin also made trade versions under store names for Western Auto, Sears, and other retailers. As a further footnote, the Marlin Glenfield 99G was a precurser of the Glenfield 60.Naaman Brown (talk) 13:07, 11 October 2008 (UTC)

Remington[edit]

Remington has bought Marlin [1]. We should have some reference to it. 68.116.99.206 (talk) 22:48, 2 January 2008 (UTC)

Done. Thanks for the heads up. AliveFreeHappy (talk) 01:00, 3 January 2008 (UTC)

Hmm. I was under the impression that Cerberus Capital Management, which owns Remington, (and Bushmaster[1]) bought Marlin. --65.175.232.83 (talk) 21:53, 5 February 2008 (UTC) remington is the fastest selling —Preceding unsigned comment added by 64.234.0.90 (talk) 02:12, 4 November 2008 (UTC)

military production[edit]

For some reason Marlin underplays its role in arming the Allies in WWII; its catalog and promotional literature concentrates on sporting use, but Marlin's wartime contributions are a legitimate part of its history.Naaman Brown (talk) 13:27, 11 October 2008 (UTC)

"Potato-Digger"[edit]

Machine gun article doesn't exist.--LandonJaeger (talk) 00:23, 1 July 2009 (UTC)

Uhh... Yes it does, please see Potato digger. L0b0t (talk) 23:45, 2 September 2009 (UTC)

Caliber .444 Marlin has no place[edit]

The article has no place to tell nothing about the caliber .444 Marlin. This company produces rifle in caliber .444 Marlin since decades ago.Agre22 (talk) 01:08, 30 August 2009 (UTC)agre22
