    New 444?

    I think I know the answer to this stupid question, but has anyone seen a new 444 available that was supposed to be shipping in April/May? I keep checking online just out of curiosity (and I might buy one to try out if they ever become available), but still none showing.

    I don't expect any to show up after being "reintroduced"---just like in 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017...........etc.

    New 444 shipping? That's their standard mantra. Hasn't happened yet and I have no faith it will.

    I think the Marlin website lists 444's. I can't remember if they are in the "XLR" configuration or not....

    ....here is the listing - 'regular' I guess.... https://www.marlinfirearms.com/lever...ore/444-marlin

    Then there's this import version of the 'Guide Gun' - https://www.budsgunshop.com/catalog/...+marlin+19+che

    I have no faith either but just thought I'd ask on the outside chance some had been shipped somewhere. I am aware of the broken promises to bring it back before as well. Sadly, I too think this is probably the same case again. However, I fail to see why it's so hard to produce. One of the excuses I've heard is that it's hard to make the cartridge feed/cycle. I call BS on that. They seem to be able to to make everything else. So I really don't get the purpose of continually lying about it. If they don't think it's popular enough to justify bringing back, then they should just say so and move one.

    They are listed on the Marlin website as available. On Grabagun, too, but out of stock. Maybe by order through a Marlin dealer? The write up also claims less recoil than a .45-70, really??

    They had to change the barrel stamp to 444 remlin and then hire someone to make sure the sights are crooked.
