Sorry guys, Marlin-Talk was "permanently" removed from the Marlin Firearms website today, without warning.

Hey Coyote Hunter! It's me, Arizona, from MarlinTalk... Glad to see a familiar face here. I suppose we're all still stunned and wondering what happened. Probably a Communist plot... I'm hoping alot of us migrate here, as this is a great site also.

Yankees 1 [ aka taurus]made over to here! Jackfish is over at 24hourcampfire also so you might check in there too! Pretty cheap of Marlin to do this with no warning! But, we have to go on!

Really a shock of loosing MarlinTalk as it was a great resource. I hope nothing "funny" is happening as they do have one of my rifles!

I suspect some of the "suits" in the organization monitored MT activity. May be they didn't like all the negative talk about Marlin that was taking place?

Coyote Hunter thanks for the email on the move to here. Really disappointed in Marlin Talk shutting down.

Man did I love that forum, I got so much info from the people there. Sad to see it go. Thankyou so much to the people that keep this site going, the knowledge that is shared here is unreplaceable.

I am amazed the forum was stopped. I suppose it didn't have the same effect on me it did all others. I have bought 7 Marlins since I joined in April of 2002. Wonder where I will get my positive reinforcement now? Might this cure the disease?

Hello former MT members.I just posted on the other thread,just wanted to say glad everyone is meeting up here,and hope to see more familiar people in the time to come.BTW,I don't think Marlin should have just dropped the forums,if they had problems they should have tried to correct them before trashing the site.Just glad we have places like this.Thanks.

AGGHHHH! I am going through withdrawal! I checked MarlinTalk everyday! The whole reason I own a .35Remington, which I had never even heard of before, was because of the great discussions on MarlinTalk.

Needless to say, I am writing Marlin Firearms a letter.

I'm not that surprised it's gone. Marlin Talk had many good members and was a source of useful info. However, It also drew some real jerks. Simple disagreements often degenerated into name calling and , in some cases, into threatened violence. There was political rancor and garbage which had no place in such a forum. Throw that in with the nasty remarks and frequent complaints about the sponsor, and it's easy to see why they pulled the plug. That said, Marlin Talk was still responsible for my purchasing two more Marlin rifles. They weren't new ones, but they were still Marlins.

I went there often, but posted little anymore. As Lossking said above, I got fed up with all the BS a year or more ago and pretty much lost interest in sorting through the crap to find the meat. I don't think I posted more than 50 times there in the last year or so but had somewhere around 500 post in the first year they were up, then it started to degenerate. Too bad too because it started out very good.

Hi taurus - Jackfish is registered here also. I hope MarlinMan93 and Parley Baer find their way over here too, I liked to read their responses to questions about older Marlins! Glad all you other former members made it over here! :D CEJ..

I've always owned Marlin rimfires but Marlin can thank Marlin Talk for my BigBore purchases. Not sure they understood how much business Marlin Talk produced for them.
