Really? Go look at the horror stories, or better yet, go look at 5-10 rifles. Hell the machine work in mine is chattery at best.

Go ask FFL's who were sending back rifles due to sticking bolts/levers, or the gunsmiths who are fixing NEW rifles.

Funny that the head of PR would say that everything is peachy since the Remington take over.

I guess that's why the Marlin Owners website has an entire section dedicated to nothing but complaints about what they refer to as "Remlins".

Now, as I understand it, Remington did basically have the equivalent of a stand down on production of the 336 models around the end of last year. What I have been hearing on the Marlin owners forum about the latest guns released this year, is that quality seems to be nearer to what it was prior to the merger. Fewer problems are being found now. But I'm not going to deny the fact that there were issues after Remington bought them out and moved production and didn't hire any of the original factory workers.

I personnally have seen guns with improperly machined levers, where dimensions were wrong in the trigger guard. Wood stocks not properly fitted. Excessive machining chatter marks. Rifles that failed to eject, and ome the failed to extract. Not read about, not heard about but seen and felt.

Glad the original poster got a good rifle. The Marlin 336 is one of my favorite rifle designs. It seems like things are straightening out again, but I still tell folks to give them more than just a quick once-over.

I've got a couple. One made in 1969, and another made in 1984. They both shoot great, and are solid, smooth, and dependable rifles.

Laughable. PR rep and you expect any less.


Ask him to send me some new handguard cap screws and band to replace the scratched to crap one the retarded assembler messed up on my 1895GBL.

Thanks for hijacking my thread. Here's the bottom line: I got a good gun and some very helpful advice on how to polish up the action. The Redfield scope is the bomb. And I will hit any target I choose to aim at. All the rest of that discussion should go somewhere else. That is all.

Apologies.

Looks like some good shooting there, by the way.

What rounds were those?

I found mine have liked the Remington 150Gr soft points, Winchester 150 and 170gr, and the LeverEvolution 160gr have been the most accurate factory load. Handloads are just a hair more accurate, but don't have the same reach as the Hornady load.

The suprising thing to me was that the Federal Powr Shok load grouped worst.

I'm still hoping they release the leverEvolution projectiles someday.
