    A "Limited" Marlin for $625.00??.........................I recall the North Haven Deluxe Marlins were about $895.00, and that was 4-5 years ago, too.

    Maybe the new "Limited" ones from remington are the "Ones that actually work"?....................


    Sorry, but I skeptical.........

    There's a pic on the 2014 Marlin catalog on their website. Great looking 336:

    Even in the brochure pics the furniture doesn't fit. What does that tell you?

    .

    That "Limited" is the flagship of the line? The way that fore end fits the metal is shameful. I would be too embarassed to even show that gun and certainly would not call it a "flagship". Greed overcomes pride.

    Yes pretty sad they couldn't even take the time to find a good one for their catalog but I bet they don't have a good one to pick. Look at the sample photo of the "limited" on gallery of guns it's worse than the catalog pic.

    Well, when I first viewed the 336 Limited Edition I thought it was hideous. I'm not fond of fancy engraving with outlining the lines of the receiver.

    The checkering is what really turned me off, the design is gawdy. It may strike someone's fancy but not mine.

    I also noticed the lack of tapering the forearm to the receiver. I suppose Remington has a new standard of what constitutes fit and finish in their furniture, if what is representated in that picture is the new norm.

    My idea of a 336 Limited Edition would have been a commemortive one devoted to John M. Marlin. A simple but tasteful engraving of John Marlin on the receiver would be something that I'd be interested in. The furniture would sport JM's standard of fit with deep cut checkering in a more traditional upgrade design and a true oil finish to a high grade fancy walnut. Metal whould be that of JM Marlin's deep blue standard. In addition, the engraving shouldn't be gold finished, maybe a silver or nickel finish would be cool. But keep it tastefully simple.

    Yeah, that would be something I'd want to own and use and be willing to pay a premium price to acquire.
