It's a classic American story, one founded on enduring tradition and
constant innovation. It began in 1870, when an eager young gunsmith
named John M. Marlin put out his sign in New Haven, Connecticut. Armed
with nothing but ambition and know-how, he built a company from the
ground up by producing firearms that were unmatched in craftsmanship and
attention to detail. Through wars and recessions, diversification and
growth, the values he instilled have remained the cornerstone of our
company. Today, more than 140 years later, Marlin has earned its
rightful place in America's proud hunting and shooting tradition.
Marlin's historic rimfire and lever action rifles - rifles like the
Model 39A, the Model 336, the Model 1894 and the Model 60 - stand
side-by-side with today's hard hitting game-changers like the 308 Marlin
Express. The story of Marlin is still being written by the generations
of sportsmen and firearm enthusiasts who call us their brand.
