Hello Fellow Marlin Owners from up in Canada.

I guess a little background is in order.
I'm just getting reacquainted with the hobby of shooting after 30 years because my 14 year old son has shown interest in target shooting.

After a good deal of research, advice seeking and just plain "dumb questions", I decided on the Marlin line for our first purchases. Due to the regulations up here, it's taken 4 month for me to get my permit to buy and own a rifle. Last week I purchased our first rifle, a 795ss which we'll be taking to the range this Sunday. The other Marlin I'm looking to purchase in an XT22R(O). The problem is no one up here has any! I've checked online in the US as well and no one seems to have stock either. So here comes yet another "dumb question"; why does there seem to be no supply of the XT series rifles?? All Canadian retailers can say is, "we're expecting an order in, call back in a couple (few) weeks."

I'd appreciate any info from those more in touch with the situation.

Thanks.

Thanks Guys.

I guess what I'm really asking is, has there been a "release" date announced for this line?

Thx

Thx Tater.
We had a beautiful day up here Sunday and took our brand new 795 to the range for a try out.
Shooting her is like eating pretzel. Once we started we couldn't stop! ;D ;D ;D
