Good Lord, that Limited Editin is horrible. That's a limited edition model!!! Well, I guess thank goodness it's limited. Could they not put a "richly blued" forearm band and lever on it or find some wood that fit? At least for the piucture? The 1895 on the next page looks about five times better.
well maybe someday Remington will get it right
Today, catalogs are worthless. I view catalogs as an offer to sell something to me, yet SHOW me where I can place an order for virtually anything in the Marlin or Browning catalogs and expect anything approaching a timely delivery. I don't know why they go to the trouble of printing the stupid things.
Boy, how out of touch Sears used to be. The stuff in their catalog was actually available within a non-Methuselah lifetime.

I have to say I'm a little disappointed by all the negativity that this thread has received. I was pretty excited to see the new 2014 edition and thought that this post might have sparked some excitement. Personally, I have high hopes for Remington to get their act together.. All the Remington rifles I've handled, mainly model 700's, have been fine rifles. Why is it so out of the question to think that they could figure out the lever action game? Call me naive but I'll stay optimistic for Marlin's future
While i would love to agree with you, you need to look at the facts. Production and Q/C have gone down the tubes with anything that has a post 2009 date. It is 2014, 5 years solid after and it seems there has been no change in quality that is leaving the building. 5 years and no change speaks volumes.
Failure by design, anyone notice that the Remlin is going the same direction that Chinachester did?

I don't care how much every one hates the REP marlins. I want me a 338mxlr!!!!
I'm no I'M cheerleader and could care less if a gun has a KNOW. As long as it doesn't have the barrel drop I'm in.
