For me Ruger has always manufactured quality products. If the price is right I'll get one. Gotta be better than the Remlins of the 2010s.

I'd like to see Ruger & Marlin bring back Ruger's 96 levergun with the detachable rotary magazine. In addition to .357 & .44 Magnum, seeing it in rifle calibers like 5.56, 7.62x39, and .308 would be desirable.

I too have been thinking of buying a new lever action rifle but I think not a Marlin (unless and old beauty). If a new one, it would probably be a Henry. Of course, I am interested to see exactly what Ruger does with the Marlin name and what guns they put out under it. If they look good, I might be tempted to try one out after some reviews by other who bought them first. If I get one it would have to be in 22 WMR or 35 REM though.

I didn’t know that ruger bought marlin? However, I only buy “JM” rifles so I guess it’s not an issue. I do want XLR 45-70 and maybe that’s easier to find

Ruger was the high bidder for Marlin when the several divisions of Remington were divvied up after Remington's demise.

Lets hope they do 454 casull lever gun to pair up with a super redhawk. I also wonder if they will try to resurrect the 480 ruger by offering one in that caliber

Id hope they would do a 460 and 500 as well but I wont hold my breath on that one
A 500 SW or 45-70 would be great. However, ruger is known for it’s mim casting to save on costs. If they go that route, I’m not sure their investment casting would hold up to a lot of those chamber pressures.
