    Marlin in .444 is back

    It's back!!

    The long-awaited return of the 444 Marlin is finally here and more reliable than ever before. This hard-hitting big-bore rifle will shoot a lighter bullet, faster, with a flatter trajectory, more energy (inside 200 yards) and with less recoil than a 45-70 Govt. The 444 Marlin is perfect for medium-sized, thin-skinned game like whitetail deer all the way up to the big brutes like moose and elk.

    FEATURES:
    22" barrel, Ballard rifling
    1:20" twist rate
    Adjustable semi-buckhorn rear sights
    Polished blue finish
    Four round magazine (total capacity 5)
    American black walnut stock with pistol grip

    40 1/2" long

    Yes! Are they making them in something other than the 22" barrel? A 16 to 18.5" barrel would be the cats meow!

    I've been looking for a big-and-slow (comparatively) rifle to compliment my 270 and 7mm rem mag, one of these might be perfect. I've seriously considered the 45-70 but this looks even better!

    Not much out there in .429 jacketed rifle bullets. Cast is great and all but not so much at 444 speeds, which kinda negates the benefits of the round....higher speed/flatter trajectory than 45/70. I sold my 444 a while back out of component availability frustrations.
