Try calling the gun repair number. Ask for Ed Goldshinsky. He was able to help me get in to visit the plant. It's well worth the time to deal with the phone time to get the chance to see Marlins in the making :D

I live about an hour north of the Marlin factory which is in North Haven, Connecticut.

When I need work done one one of my Marlins, I hop in the car and take it directly to their factory.

The people at Marlin are always extremely polite in saying that as a result of instructions issued to Marlin (and other gun manufacturers as well ...) by the Federal DHS that due to September 11, 2001 security issues, individual and group factory tours are not allowed at the present time.

But, I'd say give them a call and see what happens. Good luck too !!

6/4/09

bj,

Thanks for the note.

Completed Infantry OCS in early 3/07 and was assigned to the 101st.

After Airborne School and a brief leave, I reported to the 101st at Fort Campbell and was assigned to C-1/501 as the 2nd Platoon Leader.

Went Ranger School in the summer of '67 and when I returned to the 1/501, I was assigned to D-1/501 as its XO. Went to RVN with the Division in late 11/67.

Just before the 2nd Brigade moved north and the Tet "party", D Company's CO had me take over its 3rd Platoon. A great and eager group of troopers to say the least.

I stayed with the 1/501, mostly with D's 3rd Platoon and a few stints as its CO (only a 1LT and had to go back to the 3rd when a Captain was sent in) and while healing from wounds, a few stints with HHC, for just about all of my '67-'68 tour in RVN. Spent my last month with the 82nd's 3rd Brigade Hq (down north of Saigon) to allow for more DEROS staggering of the 101st officers.

Believe me bj, I can't say enough good about the 101st - a great fighting unit with courageous, skilled and dedicated paratroopers.

Again, thanks for the note !!
