    I was looking at the newest issue of either Field & Stream OR Outdoor Life (sorry, it's my brother's mag) recently. I saw in one of the features sections a list of new guns. One was a 45-70 Marlin. It looked like an awesome little rifle. It had a full tubular magazine, like on a 336, but it was chambered for the 45-70. It had a funny looking lever on it, not standard shaped, but not as exaggerated as on some cowboy rifles. The stocks looked like wood laminate.

    It was a way cool looking rifle and I want to buy one. I have not been able to find ANYTHING online, including Marlin's own website and this site.

    Anyone have any ideas?? It must be new for 2009.

    If it is the one I am thinking of it is a 16" barreled Guide Gun.Limited run only.Davidson's had them availible to alocated dealers.

    I would love to have one myself but funds going to others I expect Obama to do in.:cuss::banghead::fire:

    Thanks for the responses. But none of those are right, at least not the photos.

    This gun had a full tubular mag that extended the full length of the barrel. It had an oddly curvaceous lever on it. I don't remember if it was straight or Monte Carlo, but I think it was straight.

    It might have been the 16" barrel gun. I wouldn't think it was quite that short, but it might have been. I would need to see pics of it. My guess is that it is new for 2009 and no one knows anything yet.

    Like this? But maybe with a laminate stock?

    Go to www.wildwestguns.com I think you will see the lever you are describing there. They sell them as an aftermarket lever or will customize your Marlin. I seem to remember reading that Marlin was going to make a limited run of rifles using that lever and some other special features. But I could be wrong. It could have been a pictire of one of Wild West's custom guns.

    Cabelas also sells the levers for $149.

    phlip,

    That is the same idea, and the closest of all of them. But that is not the exact firearm.

    This was a blued gun, did not have the tactical rail, and had a slightly different lever loop.

    The gun was not featured in Petzal's column (or article).

    However, I might like this one even more! Thanks.
