Sears sold the Ranger-branded Marlins.
Basically, Marlin made 'em, then labeled them for each store...on the barrelstamps.
That's why you have Ranger, Coast-to-Coast, Big 5, Katz, Cotter & Co, & a ton of other stores with their own personal brand of Marlin.
You practically need a cross-reference for the Numrich Cross-references when it comes to Marlins.
Hope that helps
It's worse than that...he's dead, Jim. You grab his tricorder, I'll get his wallet.
