Marlin 336BL – Back from the dead!

Marlin 336BL once again reflects quality you expect from this legendary manufacturer!

It is well-known that once the Freedom Group acquired Marlin Firearms, things went downhill… QUICK.  Quality control was practically non-existent with things like cracked stocks, failure to function, poor accuracy, and terrible fit/finish all showing up straight from the factory.  Complaints were made and the decision was made to discontinue the bulk of Marlin models while improvements were made to the manufacturing process with the plan to reintroduce the discontinued models gradually over time to ensure quality standards were maintained.

I have noticed the improvement to quality in Marlin Firearms over the last year, and am thoroughly impressed with the 336BL.  The blued finish is beautiful and the wood fits exactly like it should.  If you have been hesitant to buy a Marlin since they were acquired by the Freedom Group, I can’t say I blame you – but I think it is time to take a look and see what they have been up to with their recent improvements!  Get the 336BL and other Marlin models at Coates Guns!

Henry Repeating Arms has announced the production of a limited edition rifle named the Frontier Carbine “Evil Roy” Edition.  Available in .22 LR, this carbine features a short octagon barrel, fully adjustable semi-buckhorn rear sight with beaded front sight, a grooved receiver for easy scope mounting, smooth trigger release, and a medium stock length suitable for both adults and kids. The silver receiver and barrel band with a large loop lever and unique wood engraving make it a complete package!

Named after world champion and hall-of-famer “Evil Roy” Gene Pearcey, this rifle is sure to be a collectible.  These rifles are due to ship from the manufacturer soon, and I have already gotten dibs on at least a couple.  Send us a message if you would like to be notified when Coates Guns receives some of the first “Evil Roy’s”!

Sig Sauer P238 HD .380′s are IN STOCK!


Sig Sauer P238
Sig Sauer P238

The SIG SAUER P238′s relatively gentle recoil makes it an extremely accurate little jewel and, well, fun.  A P238 owner’s unlikely to treat his or her weapon like your average mouse gun (stick it in a secret cage and only pull it out when your life depends on it). The P238 is a range toy in the best sense of that term: a gun you’ll play with to the point where shooting it well will become second nature. And that means the gun may do you some good should you ever need to use it in a self-defense situation.   - TTAG’s review of the P238

If you are looking for a reliable and accurate concealed carry pistol, but don’t like the cheap feel of a polymer frame – then this is one you need to take a close look at!  Get it at Coates Guns!

Sig Sauer SP2022 Review by TTAG


Read this review of the Sig Sauer SP2022 posted by TTAG.  

The Sig Sauer SP2022 provides great handling, pinpoint accuracy, beautiful fit & finish, and the reliability that you expect from a name like Sig Sauer – but at a more affordable price point!

Each SP2022 includes two magazines, a holster, two interchangeable grips, a lockable hard-case, and is available in 9mm or .40 S&W.

 Get it at Coates Guns!

For the money, this might be one of the best handguns on the market. Sig Sauer quality with a sticker price below Glock’s “perfection.” The only sticking point is the trigger, which could stand some improvement and might be a little hard for newbies (what with the DA/SA action). -TTAG
