Tonight on American Rifleman TV: Marlin Firearms Today; Thompson/Center Compass Rifle

posted on February 1, 2017
American Rifleman has been covering Marlin guns since John Mahlon Marlin ran the place. Purchased by Remington a few years back, Marlin lever-actions are now built in Ilion, N.Y., and the guns rolling off the line are old-school designs made with modern materials and manufacturing methods. If you want to know the history of the Marlin Firearms Company and how it makes guns today, tune in to ARTV tonight. 

In "Rifleman Review," we shoot an affordable performance rifle from Thompson/Center, the T/C Compass

For "I Have this Old Gun" we look at the littlest Browning, known as the Baby Browning, made by FN.
