See link and scroll to the bottom for the new Marlin catalog for rifles that will be produced (hopefully) by Ruger this year. Remington, in my opinion, mishandled this great line of rifles.
I'll come clean and state that I'm a Marlin fan. I own a 1894C in .357 Magnum. 336 carbines in .30-30 Winchester and .35 Remington. and a 1895 in .45-70. My lone Remington 1894 in .45 Colt. I hope the best that Ruger can pull this off.

I'll apologize if this catalogue was just a put-up by Ruger in the interim of setting up their production lines to anyone that has looked at this. Perhaps I was too hopeful. Honestly I haven't looked at the previous Remington catalogues. If anyone can confirm any news on this I would appreciate it.
Not that I really need another lever rifle, my bases are pretty well covered.

Great catalog, hopefully they can make it happen. Looks like I might need a new lever action this year!

I’d like one in 44mag to go with my pistol I hunt with sometimes. I have a 1895GBL and it is one of my favorite rifles. It is so fun to shoot and surprisingly very accurate for a lever gun.

I hope Ruger brings back some of the obscure calibers as they have done with the No 1. .25-20, .25-30, etc.

@WAB
As well as the 32/20

Totally agree Bob. If they came out with a line of classic calibers in an old school lever gun and did limited production runs as they do with the No.1, they'd sell out every run. I'd line up for a .25/30 with a receiver or tang sight. That would be a fun rig to play with and very capable for our whitetail.

I think ruger needs to keep it simple and classy to start out. No need for all black lever guns with threaded barrels or 16.5" barrels. Focus on the quality control and classics.
As long as they don't go crazy with it I think it'll be okay. It's a fad right now so they definitely shouldn't make it the priority though. Be nice for them to offer the shorter ones with youth model stocks that can be upgraded later for younger shooters/hunters.

That being said......I'd be very interested in a 16 inch lever action in 300 BLK that I can throw a can on.

Anybody who showed up with a black tricked out lever action in our deer camp would razed on unmercifully if not laughed out of the cabin. What kind of evil mind thinks up such an abomination?

Ruger has done very well with their limited runs of old school cartridges in both the no 1 and now the Hawkeye. Anyone who got one of the lipseys run of 358 win hawk eyes got a real nice rifle. Nice looking wood too.

Some of their .22's will be nice to see again. I've got a 75? and 795, had 1 or 2 Model 60's. IMO underrated little semiautos. I prefer these over the Ruger 10/22, which the Model 60 strongly competed against. Hopefully the Model 60 doesn't lose out here.
I'd like to see either a .25/20 or .32/20 in the 1894.
Maybe some of the old big bore BP cartridges in the 1895 in the cowboy style.
And the Camp Carbine line, 9mm or .45 auto would be fun as well. I passed on a Camp 9 last year at around $600, now I wish I hadn't.

It would be neat to see a version of the original Marlin Takedown in .25-20. I have an old one that I inherited from my dad who got it from his grandfather. 1902. The take down is still tight because the cartridge is so low pressure and it was so well built. Good luck finding flat nose 85 grain .257 bullets though. I think they are seasonal run and even then, they don't make many of them. I have an old RCBS 90 grain, LRNFP GC bullet mold to go with it and it shoots pretty well with those at about 1,350 fps. Not a gun I would take after deer but still really fun to break out and shoot every now and then.

Sweet, quiet and soft shooting gun, but the barrel is nearly shot out of mine.

I'd line up to buy one! Perhaps we should petition Ruger!

@ChrisG
Mate Speer make a great little 70 or 75 grain weldcore that can safely be shot at 1,800 fps SAFELY in the 25/20.
I loaded up some for a friend to use in his Winchester 92. They were very effective on big billy goats to 80 odd yards and would give thru and thru on side on chest shots at that range and massive damage for its size. He also shot fallow deer with it and they never went far.

they are few and far between though. I have boxes and boxes of both the speer 85 grain hot core and a bunch of hornady 60 grain interlocks. I won't need any for the rest of my life. I also found a deal on brass and have about 600 pieces for the gun. I have no doubt it will kill deer, but I don't think it is going to break bone well at all angles. So I will stick with my 6.5x55 for a deer gun and maybe tote that thing out for coyote or, If I could get close enough, maybe a pronghorn hunt! :sneaky:

Won't kill at all angles but If'n you pick your shots it gets the job done without fuss or bother.

Hi Bob, how's things going in Wyong?. Down your way a couple of years back but haven't been in NSW since Ebor for the fishing. just getting over some nasty storms up here in Qld, seeing the sun for the first time in a few days. I'm going to NZ in the spring and hope to clean up a few buns while there and perhaps shake the spiders out of my old .303LE (currently owned by my BIL). Cheers Brian

Heard you may have load data for the 500 Jeffery,.....any info would be appreciated. Was thinking 535gr, but already had a response that the 570gr would be a better way to go, not sure why.
