The guy you know is still at Ruger. I’m sure he played a part in this.One of the best engineers I knew at Marlin was let go when Freedom Group moved it out of Connecticut. He went to work for Ruger and the last time I saw him was at the SHOT Show in 2011.
Hope he is still with Ruger and they revive the Marlin reputation.
Came back to add I hope for quackmaster and everyone else at the ammo facility this goes through and is great for them all. I still miss the work and people there and I’ve been gone nine years.
