    Remington to Acquire Marlin Firearms

    Got this thru email today ........ don't think I've seen it posted.

    Remington Arms Co. announced today it has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire North Haven, Conn.-based Marlin Firearms Co. The transaction is expected to close by the end of January.

    News to me too - tho can't really think Marlin have actually had problems, heck they have been around since the ark ....... but maybe this is a good way to strengthen and consolidate.

    Can't see the name disappearing.

    Marlin might need capital for its next venture....Remingtin migh be looking for a synergistic partner....who knows. It's not a good sign when we start losing bona fide industry names.....
