Howdy! About four months ago I started thinking really seriously about a center-fire bolt gun. I formulated a general idea of the specs I wanted and began the search. One of the very first contenders that caught my eye was the Marlin xl/xs series of bolt guns. Shortly after looking around a bit, I found you guys! To shorten the story by about 9 miles, I ended up with one of the xl7's in 30-06 spr. I'm therefore looking to learn all I can about the rifle's strengths and weaknesses. I have been looking into it for about 2-3 months now, but there's always something else to be learnt and I intend to press to that mark! M-M

Welcome aboard Kentucky. It's a beautiful place and far cry from these Colorado plains where you can get skunked hunting for a tree.

Warm welcomes from another Kentuckian MM! I don't know much about Marlin bolt actions myself, however I did just put money down on my first one, and older 25MN in 22 magnum. I'm sure they all have particular strengths and weaknesses, and you came to the right place to find out. This is the most knowledgeable and helpful community I've run across on the web. Stick around and some of the bolt guys will chime in soon.

Welcome from a little Bluff here W TN. Sorry don't know much about the rifle but I'm prety sure you came to the right place. Someone will come along in a little while. Welcome to the fourm!
Hey Kray I just put one of those in a layway last week also, I thought it would look good beside the 25N that I already have.
