    Is Marlin/Remington still making the Model 983 .22 Mag?

    I was perusing the company website and it's still listed there, but I can't one anywhere in person. Even the "Gallery of Guns" at Davidson's lists it as "not currently a valid item number in our system." I want a tube fed 22 mag and figured the 983 was the way to go. Did Marlin ever make a model 39 or similar lever gun in 22 Mag?

    Re: Is Marlin/Remington still making the Model 983 .22 Mag?

    Below is from another post, but the answer is a magnum exists, it's not a 983 anymore.


    "Curiosity got me on the 22's.. out of the following:
    XT-22 has 15 rifles, 11 plastic and 2 hardwood, 1 laminate and 1 walnut.
    XT-17 showed 9 rifles, 3 plastic, 2 hardwood, and 4 laminate
    XT-22Y shows 4 rifles, 2 hardwood and 2 plastic.
    That's 28 .22 caliber rifles and only 1 is Walnut! It's a .22 WMR, XT-22MTW...whatever that means. I say lets take a simple concept and screw it up, while we're at it throw in some funny impressive names ...hell, that'll sell them plastic jobbies!"

    Scroll down to the bottom and click on the tab. Mr fixit

    As Mr. Fixit pointed out, the Marlin rimfire line was pretty much gutted. All the old bolt action model designators were dropped and the rifles were re-worked to one degree or another with all of them having a horrible looking new "safety trigger" or whatever they are calling it.

    Marlin did make lever action .22WMR's. There was the 1894M and the 57M Levermatic. There might have been others but I'm not sure.

    MoFo,

    Our local shop here currently shows one 983s in their inventory if that helps you.

    My 983 is one of my favorites to be sure.



    Good luck with your search.

    As Erik said, the 57M was one of the 22 mag lever guns Marlin made. I have one and like it pretty well.





    As for the "new" line of rimfires that Marlin came out with, I think most are hideous looking. I hate those plastic stocks. I have a Savage 93 with the plastic stock that I bought for a very cheap price. I have been looking for a walnut or birch stock for it, but can't seem to find one.

    Re: Is Marlin/Remington still making the Model 983 .22 Mag?

    I put an order in at the local GS for a 983, what FINALLY came around after a YEAR of waiting because of various snafus was a 983T. I figured that's what I was going to end up with, so was able to order a walnut stock from Marlin about a month after I placed the order for the 983t. BIG difference in feel between the two stocks, love the walnut one. Currently it has a Leupold 2x7RF scope, J&P striker spring set and a chrome RifleBasix trigger mounted in the walnut stock.
    Good luck in your search.

    Re: Is Marlin/Remington still making the Model 983 .22 Mag?

    *sigh* THAT is not the answer I wanted, guys. I've got boat loads of classic 22lr's hogging up real estate in the safe, but sure, as soon as I want to pick up a .22 Mag the only one that turns my head has been given the Remington treatment. I guess I'll just have to keep a look out for a used one in great (i hope) condition. The old ones are more fun anyway.

    I appreciate all the knowledgeable and timely replies I received on this. I've been lurking on this forum for a few years and finally registered back in Dec. after deciding that y'all are a group of guys I can relate to. You keep it fun and civil and help each other out when you can. No dumb egos on here that I've noticed. It's a refreshing change from most of the other forums, especially the black guns forums, hooooo boy, do they have some Rambos on there! I don't understand why the other forums don't understand that guns are FUN and so should talking about them with like minded folks! I never got into that whole, "my internet weenie is bigger than your internet weenie" type of thing. Seems kinda sad and pointless to me. Isn't this all supposed to be about fun? Glad I found you guys!

    The 25M and 925M are both good rifles as well. Just to expand your options even more.

    My sister has an 883 and it is a tack driver.
