I was reading on one of the many gun forums I check on/read that Ruger put a statement out that they believe by the end of the year (2021) they will be producing/offering Marlins for sale. If I recall right it would be the 336, 94's, and maybe the 22LR semi-auto Model 60. A lotta chatter for them to produce the 39A and the 39M .22's also. Rather see those than the Model 60.

 Ruger advised that due to moving equipment from Remington, getting new equipment, training employee's, and getting the feel of Marlins lever gun production is why the delay. Statement referred to they (Ruger) not wanting to hurry the production, but wanting to get it right from the start. Alot of chatter about Rugers Marlin purchase on Ruger.org gun forum-maybe it was there I read the info. Wonder what handle these will have? Rulin's? Marger's? Maybe just thee Ol "Marlin's" will suffice!

Would seem odd for the producer of the 10/22 to also produce their own primary competition, the Marlin mod 60. The Model 39 would seem to make more sense.

That thought occurred to me also, but there are those Marlin Mod 60 fans out there and any profit from their sales, well goes into Ruger's bank account same as a 10-22 does. Ref the 39's, I suppose Ruger can't come out right away with every popular model from the get-go, but as popular as the 39's were and still are, I wouldn't doubt that somewhere in Rugers 'mover and shaker' board meetings there has been discussion in bringing either or both the 39A and 39M out after start up models get on track. I'm more of a fan of the M model, although I have both the A and M. Bought my 39M in June of 1970 for $94.00 from Herter's in Waseca, Minn. Still have it and even after 1000's of rds through it, it could be listed at 90% plus in condition. Haven't had my mid 1950 39A that long, but its in beautiful shape also.

I wish they would hurry up so Marlin prices would come back down to earth.
