Marlin Hosts Fun Event to Promote Youth Shooting

Marlin Firearms recently hosted a “fun shoot” in West Virginia. The goal of the event was to introduce youngsters to the shooting sports in a safe and entertaining fashion. As shown in the video below, the event featured the “Marlin Man” on horseback, interactive targets, and junior-sized Marlin XT-22 rifles.

Marlin’s new XT Youth series are the first Marlin rifles designed specifically for younger shooters. Weighing just four pounds, these rifles have a 16″ barrel and measure 33″ overall. Both single shot and mag-fed versions are offered.

XT Youth series rifles feature a shorter length of pull, shorter trigger reach, smaller pistol grip and a raised comb, making it easier for young shooters to acquire and hold a proper sight picture. In addition, the bolt lift and cocking force on the XT Youth rifles has been reduced for easier ejection and faster chambering. In the video below, Karin, a grade-schooler, gives the Marlin XT a thumbs-up review.
