    Ruger-Marlins on Gunbroker

    I wonder if there ain't some folks banking on another Marlin collapse. Thinking these are the last Marlins and will shortly be worth their weight in gold.

    Need some help with a strange barrel issue

    Unfortunately on the newer guns we get to experience that level of service a bit too often. I love my Rugers. But of the last 9 I bought 6 of them were returned for repair 3 had to be outright replaced. Glad the OP got taken care, but that barrel should of never made it on a gun.
