Speaking of chamberings, the Marlin Dark series is currently available in two calibers: .30-30, which is available for purchase right now; and .45-70 Gov't., which will be shipping in three or so weeks. Both are tried-and-true loads suitable for big-game hunting, varminting, serving as a truck gun...or, if need be, defending your home. They both have 16.25-inch barrels and an overall length of 34.5 inches, and both offer 5+1 ammunition capacity. The MSRP is $949.
