I have a Marlin Guide gun. It is a great gun made in 2009. I love the 45-70 round. I saw a guy post a picture of a suppressed 45-70 on this forum a while back. That would be a sweet hog killing gun!
The JM stamped marlins as a whole are sweet guns. The (REP) stamped marlins are hit and miss.
Always looking for a good hunt!
