the Freedom Group owns both companies and Remington owns Marlin, but they are still seperate companies.
the 783 looks more like an updated M770 with a Savage style barrel nut. look at the action and you can see the similarities in it.
IMO, the M783 is butt ugly. the Marlin X7 series looks great in comparison. life is too short to own butt ugly guns!
