    Marlin is moving to a more business friendly state, not closing.

    Or Washington. Last year the legislature removed a tax exemption for the only mint left in WA.. they sure helped to bring in more revenue, the mint has moved to Nevada!

    Pathetic, ignorant greedy libtards :p

    I guess they haven't signed on to the redistribution agenda yet. Don't they understand that there are lots of folks in the inner cities that don't work and need funds!!!!

    Hopefully Idaho. My guess they are following Ruger and moving to Arizona. But that is my guess, but then Montana, Wyoming, Nevada would also be great gun friendly states to move to.

    They were bought by Remington last year. As part of any takeover consolidation Marlin is closing its Connecticut plant and keeping its North Carolina plant. The issue has more to due with the labor union in New Haven than anything else.. They will continue to make products right here in the US of A, just no longer in New Haven.

    Marlin is currently head-quartered in Madison, North Carolina. There is no indication that the production of Marlin rifles will be halted — production will likely be shifted to Freedom Group factories in other states — probably in the Southeast.

    I understand that Marlin is moving to Ilion, NY to the Remington owned plants at that location for manufacturing.

    Wow, that scared me! I love Marlin. If they were closing I'd have to start looking for some spare cash to pick up some lever actions quick!
