Marlin Celebrates 150 Years
In 1870, a visionary named John M. Marlin set out to build firearms that matched this country's fierce independent spirit. Although rifles, pistols and shotguns of nearly every type would come to bear the Marlin brand, his singular accomplishment would be a lever-action gun of exceptional strength, smoothness and accuracy. Marlin proudly marks its 150th anniversary with the modern descendants of that same lever-action built with the tightest manufacturing tolerances in company history and a few performance enhancements. The company has special 150th anniversary editions of the Model 444, Model 60 and ammunition that you can learn more about at MarlinFirearms.com.
