Marlin 336 auction gone crazy.

<< < (2/3) > >>

Major 2:
Every time I see ridiculous money, paid in a sale,
 I think to myself " there's a sucker born every minute"

The phrase is usually attributed to P.T. Barnum .

Baltimore Ed:
There’s also, ‘a fool and his money are soon parted.’ Don’t know who said that.

Major 2:
 I recall hearing my Granddad using that quote, over 60 years ago.

So, I looked it up... It was used by a poet named Thomas Tusser in a poem he wrote called Five Hundred Points of Good Husbandry, in the year 1557. While the wording is a bit different, the expression is still similar enough to the one that’s used today:
 “A foole and his money be soone at debate: which after with sorow repents him too late.”

--- Quote from: Tuolumne Lawman on March 08, 2022, 10:02:30 AM ---The guy LIED in the auction.  Marlin is NOT out of business, just now owned by Ruger.  They are ramping up production, and the 336 is one of the models they intend start producing when they set up the new factory.  Restoring Marlin to their prior quality is one of Ruger's stated goals, as they are a non-competing product line.  Ruger is strictly Bolt center fire and semi-auto rim-fire and center Fire. Marlin is lever action center and rim-fire, and rim-fire bolt action.

Liar, Liar, pants on fire!

--- End quote ---

Tuolumne Lawman, Ruger already has the 1895 model in production and out to dealers. They are currently only producing the 1895 SBL Guide Gun in .45-70. Their MSRP is $1399.00, I think.


yes but how did the fool and his money get together in the first place? :)
