I really would like to get a Marlin Guide Gun, but I don't like the super short 18.5" barrel. I shot one the other day and the muzzle blast from the 450 Marlin was alot. I'm thinking that a longer barrel would keep the blast a bit further away. I would really like a Stainless Marlin with the ported barrel to also be available with a 22" or 24" barrel, which means that you could also have a higher ammo capacity. I think this would be great for hogs. Would a longer barrel help in the muzzle blast department?
