    Remington's Takeover of Marlin

    Does anyone really know how this came about. Was Marlin forced into doing this? Did Remington present Marlin with an offer that they couldn't refuse? Was there any ouside influence by a 3rd party for this merger? Did Wall Steet have any hand in this? Was Marlin's financial status such that they needed to merge to survive? I've heard so many opinions and rumors as to how all this came about that I thought I'd ask you Marlinites what is the real truth to the events that caused this merger.

    (The version I read/heard)
    Marlin was family owned and run. As time progressed, more and more family members entered the picture. Supposedly nobody could agree with how Marlin should operate, or what direction they should take. They decided to sell the company. Remington/Cerberus bought them.

    As democracy is perfected, the office (of President) represents,... the inner soul of the people... On some great and glorious day the plain folks... will reach their heart's desire at last, and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron-Mencken

    Marlin was a privately owned company so no Wall Street influence. It was also profitable, more so than Remington. The Kenna's decided they wanted to liquidate the firearms business to focus on their printing business. Leastwise that's their story.

    FGI made them an offer they couldn't refuse and promptly put them under the Remington banner no doubt to help prop up the struggling brand.

    Freedom Group Incorporated OWNS Remington AND Marlin so I guess you could say they're brothers even tho I'd never buy a Remington rifle.

    The Marlins are now gonna be X7's wether short or long actions. Because we talk so highly of these rifles they have come out with new stuff. A 308 is coming with a bull barrel, and the prices are rising. I bet that here soon you wont be able to touch one for under $500 or worse unless you know someone who will sell for a hair over cost.
