    Are 338 MXLR rifles available?

    I apologize ahead of time if I'm posting this in the wrong place. I've read stickies and searched the forums, but I can't find the answer to this question: Is there any where I can buy a 338 MXLR? I asked my wife to get me one for Christmas a couple of months ago and just found out that she's been trying ever since to find one. I already stocked up on ammo, having read outdated posts that mentioned a shortage. I would prefer a new rifle, but a used one in good condition would be fine too.

    Apparently, she called Marlin too, and was told that they won't be shipping any new ones until next fall - if they make it at all!

    Any help in tracking down a 338 MXLR would be extremely helpful - I'm feeling kind of guilty that I asked for such a tough find.

    You don't want a new one from Remlin. Search gunsamerica.com or other sites for a JM stamped Marlin.

    If I were you, I would start a new thread down in the "Trading Post" section in the "Rifles: Wanting to buy/Wanting to sell" section and post exactly what you are looking for. I would also ask for a serial number that starts with 93XXXX as that production year should avoid any issues with problematic rifles made after the Remington onslaught. Though I am no expert on the MX or MXLR rifles, it might be possible to still get a quality rifle in the 92XXXX year of manufacture.

    This is how I found my 93XXXX .308 ME rifle that I am very pleased with though I have yet to fire it. Good luck to you.

    Not shipping til next fall? A lot of potential customers will move on to another model of Marlin or manufacturer by them methinks. If they're pushing it that far back, I won't be surprised if it gets axed before then, though I hope not.

    Good luck on your quest for the 338 MXLR. Mines a 92 serial number and has been perfect. Even if it's Christmas in July, it'll be worth it. Post here as was stated and check the gun auction sites dailey. I wouldn't sell mine for what I paid for it 2 years ago, new. They are that damn good when they are put together right. IF you find one, not gonna be cheap. AND, welcome to Marlin Owners!!! DP

    Thanks for the advice, everyone. I'll put a post in the trading post section.
