Data on tracing handguns are unreliable
Posted on February 27, 2012

Traces are sometimes useful for law enforcement. However, because of selection bias in finding and determining which guns to trace sometimes intentional and sometimes not but always impossible to correct or adjust for no study based on tracing data is worth the paper it's printed on, regardless of how sophisticated or honest the analysis following the data collection. As the acronym has it, GIGO ("garbage in, garbage out").

In all seriousness, the Marlin is a great rifle, too. I own a Model 60, one of the best rifles ever made.
Brownings are nice, but in terms of quality AND accuarcy AND ruggedness, it's hard to beat the Marlin.
