Marlin Celebrates 150th Anniversary

Marlin is celebrating 150 years of the American Hunter with 150th Anniversary editions of the Model 444, Model 60 and ammunition.

Marlin Celebrates 150th Anniversary

In 1870, John M. Marlin set out to build firearms that matched America’s fierce independent spirit. Although rifles, pistols and shotguns of nearly every type would bear the Marlin brand, his singular accomplishment would be a lever action of exceptional strength, smoothness and accuracy – hallmarks of the legendary lever guns that outperform all others to this day.

Marlin is marking its 150th anniversary with the modern descendants of that same lever action – now built with the tightest manufacturing tolerances in its history and custom-grade performance enhancement.

Shooting 600 Yards with .300 Blackout

Shooting 600 Yards with .300 Blackout

The .300 Blackout cartridge was developed to provide greater effectiveness than a 9mm at short and medium ranges when fired from a short-barreled suppressed firearm. Just because the cartridge wasn't designed to go long doesn't mean Rifles & Optics Editor Tom Beckstrand won't take it there, using a large-format pistol, no less. Armed with SIG Sauer's 9-inch-barreled MCX Virtus Pistol loaded with Black Hills' 125-grain TMK ammunition, Beckstrand attempts to ring steel at 600 yards with help from Hornady's 4DOF ballistic calculator in this segment of “Long Range Tech.”

Guns & Ammo TV: Shooting 1,270 Yards with the 5.56 NATO

Guns & Ammo Rifles & Optics Editor Tom Beckstrand was on location in Idaho where he pushed the limits of the 5.56 NATO cartridge in this segment of “Long Range Tech” for Guns & Ammo TV. Pairing a SIG Sauer MCX Virtus rifle loaded with Hornady's 73-grain ELD-M ammunition, Beckstrand attempted to ring steel set at 1,270 yards, an incredible distance for any 5.56-chambered rifle and beyond the typical range for an AR-15.
