A Long American History
Though it never gained the attention of many of its competitors from that time period, Marlin Firearms Co. has been a part of the industry since 1870. Originally, it opened up shop in North Haven, Connecticut, where it worked to produce some of the best rifles of its day. It made progress during World War I when it became a large producer of machine guns for the war effort and in the 1990s it really started to outsell many other lever action rifle makers.
As a result, it expanded in 2000 with the purchase of H&R 1871, Inc. In 2007, Marlin Arms was acquired by Remington and became part of the Freedom Group. Now operated out of Madison, North Carolina, the company continues to produce some of the highest quality hunting rifles on the market today.
