If this statement is true then Marlin had no class. Did Marlin ever get away from that practice? It would be interesting to find out. Ruger still refuses to acknowledge S&W on their caliber designation. No class.Posted by Flint
That designation actually came from Marlin, who refused to put any other manufacturer's name on their rifles, so when Marlin chambered 44WCF (Winchester Centerfire), they called it 44-40.
