The Marlin ,Lever , 45/70,s used to be one of the best guns out there..! Since the "Buy' of 2010 , they,ve been nothing more than junk..! Barrels off center , chambers and barrels left in the rough , receiver blocks ,(TOOL MARKS) , ETC.! I have not seen much more than bashing since "Remington" had bought them..! What have you done to my Rifle..? Jerks of all trades blindly trying to master this production of an "Icon"..! I've changed my ways and only look for the guns before the buy 2010 , but will need some under-ground source to get parts..! Go back to building SHOT-GUNS Remington , and take a step back , maybe "SLING-SHOTS" ..? What say yee..?
