I was just reading the Marlin web site:
MarlinFirearms.com

The letter was written over a year ago and called for production late in 2021. I think they are having supplier issues like the rest of the U.S.A.?
Here is the letter from Customer Service:

I am looking forward to seeing the new Ruger Marlins and the prices. I have always owned the original Marlins. I never bought the Rem-Marlin and never fired one (no reason why, and so no opinion).

My current Marlins are from the 1970's with this one from 1949 (some wear but still really good):

I agree and hope the new manufacturers will agree. I am more a quality than a quantity buyer.
Me too Vintage. Ain't got a ton but don't need em. Reasonable quality and old fashioned walnut with glossy bluing get my blood pumping. Admit bought most stuff 40 years ago when they were more affordable to me anyway. Like to know what that Rem TB Trap 1100 would sell for if still made now. I could not afford it.

This is one of my special Marlin 336 lever-action rifles. It's a 1974 Marlin issue in .35 Remington.

Glowing review in the Feb. 2022 issue of Guns&Ammo magazine by Craig Boddington. Looks like they did a great job with fit and finish. Like the rear ghost ring with Hi Viz front sight. Knew they would be expensive!!

Just over a year after acquiring the assets associated with the Marlin brand, Ruger is shipping the first Marlin model, the 1895 SBL chambered in .45-70 Govt.

“We are excited to officially flip the switch and let our customers know that Marlin is back,” said Ruger President and CEO, Chris Killoy. “Since the move of over 100 truckloads of equipment and inventory back in November 2020, our engineering team took the 1895 through a complete design and production review focused on achieving the highest quality, accuracy, and performance standards. The end result is a quality rifle, produced using modern manufacturing methods, that consumers will be sure to enjoy and proud to own.”

This first model is just the beginning of the reintroduction of the Marlin brand and illustrates the improved manufacturing processes that deliver reliable, attractive firearms. These processes will result in the introduction of additional Marlin models, calibers and variations over the coming years.

“Being a long-time Marlin fan, I knew that we needed to take our time and make sure that our reintroduction was nothing short of perfect,” continued Killoy. “From the quality of the firearm, to clear ways for consumers to differentiate Ruger-made Marlins, we focused on getting every detail right.”

Ruger-made, Marlin 1895 SBL rifles are marked with “Mayodan, NC,” bear an “RM” or Ruger-Made serial number prefix, have the Marlin Horse and Rider logo laser engraved on their grip, and also feature a red and white “bullseye” on the buttstock.

Additional models are scheduled for release throughout the coming year; specifically, other variations of the Model 1895, as well as the reintroduction of the Model 336 and Model 1894. Due to the anticipated strong demand and the limited quantity of Ruger-made Marlin lever-action rifles, Ruger encourages retailers to contact their distributors for availability and advises consumers not to leave deposits with retailers that do not have confirmed shipments.
