    Marlin Spikehorn

    Anyone one know if Marlington is now producing the spikehorn? I saw one for sale today but was unsure if it was leftover stock or a post North Haven gun.

    Thanks

    Forget last post, searched gunbroker and found 10 of them and noticed the "hardwood" stock. Was going to buy for my son but don't know if I could buy a Marlin not made in CT. Handy looking little rifle though. Not yet listed on Marlin website. May just need to go the used route and buy another stock to cut down for LOP.

    There have been several good reports on the newer Spikehorns made in NY. However, I would want to inspect one in person before throwing my money down....so I would advise against any internet orders unless the seller guarantees you a refund if you're not satisfied. I'm still trying to figure out why they decided to put hardwood stocks on them

    I have one of the (somewhat rare) 2003 made Spikehorns and it has absolutely beautiful walnut stocks on it.

    My local gunshop has one and it is crap. Wood to metal fit is terrible and the front sight is about 11 oclock. You really should check one out before you buy it.

    We are having a son in December and I am looking for one too. I never see an original Marlin one.

    Good luck in your search.

    So........is it for sale? Like I said, I got a boy on the way and he needs a rifle.

    That is a sweet rifle. Much better looking than the new ones. Thanks for posting a pic.

    Not for sale....sorry. My youngest son killed his first black bear with it last year (Then 10yrs old). He's hoping to kill another next year with it again.

    Since your son is only on the way......you have plenty of time to find him a good one. They pop up for sale every so often. I lucked out and bought mine from a member here on the forum a few years back.

    Congrats on your new "Future" life long hunting partner.

    I never understood the discontinuation of the Spikehorn. It seemed like a perfect model for the lineup but considering how short its life was I reckon the sales folk knew a lot more than I do. Even if the short forearm was a costly production issue it would have been easy enough to just put on a standard length one. But like I said...

    Anyway, both my daughters were shooting my 20" 336W from the time they were about eight and my oldest carried it in the woods for a couple years deer hunting. They never had any issues though I would have liked a shorter buttstock for them. If I had it to do over again I would get the same gun but a spare butt and cut it down. Then later you can add a thick pad to adjust for growth.

    My wife keeps telling me I have plenty of time too, but I like to stay ahead of the hounds. I am very excited about having a mini me to hunt with. I guess I can always cut one down, but I hate to butcher a nice rifle.

    Same here......I actually questioned the same on the 39A, why not have the carbine length or bring back the Mountie. I really wanted to get my son one, but the 24" is just too heavy and hard to balance for a youngster.....and the cost of the Mounties are getting astronomical!
