I dont believe it is....but, there are a number of "pre-owned" 444's that come up for sale on this site, so, if you are interested keep and eye out in the "For Sale" area of the forum.Can anyone tell me if the 444 Marlin is still in production. I'm talking about the rifle and not the ammo, of course!
Are those stainless guns going to be 444XLR's w/24" barrels; or, a standard 444SS in stainless w/a 22" barrel?Marlin is producing the 444 again, but at this time, in limited runs. They ran some off in January and some folk here have stated to have some of the new Remlin 444s. Remington customer service rep has been quoted saying another run of 444 Marlin SS will be in May with anticipated June shipment. I do know that Buds guns shop had some for a day or two, but they were scooped up quickly. Davidsons says they have some allocated. I assume they are waiting for the June shipment. I have dibbs on one that is on order through a local gun shop, but there are no guarantees that he will get any.
As far as I am aware, the 22" blued 444 SS is the only rifle being built, but vendors like Buds have re-introduced the XLR into their on-line listings. I can't get much out of Marlin about it.Are those stainless guns going to be 444XLR's w/24" barrels; or, a standard 444SS in stainless w/a 22" barrel?
