For some reason, Marlin Firearms has never offered a full-length mag tube for the Marlin 444 lever-action rifle. The magazine tube requires a bulge just forward of the receiver to allow the wide, straight cartridges to pass through the side loading gate. At Ranger Point, we built a fixture that allows us to impart this bulge to any Marlin 336 mag tube, so that we can offer full-length magazine tubes for any barrel. Yes, that means your 22" barreled 444 can now hold 7+1, and our longest 24" 410 can hold 8+1. Saucy!
Package details for the kit:
- One 336 Mag Tube cut down to 22" with the bulge (or shorter if you like)
- One magazine spring
Gunsmith Service Necessary to Cut a New Dovetail:
The fit of the magazine tube corresponds with the dovetail cut in the bottom of the barrel for the magazine tube stud. In order to replace the factory installed tube with a different length, this dovetail would need to be moved to match the length of the magazine tube being installed. Your local gunsmith should be able to perform this service. If not, RPP can also perform this service along with installing the new kit ($80 + $40 shipping).
