    My $249 Remlin 1895

    I spent all day yesterday in the woods clearing brush and working on stands in preparation for Texas deer season. Dang it was hot!!!!

    I brought my $249.00 Walmart clearance Remlin ($299 - $50 Rebate) along to see if it would feed and fire. After finishing my work, I pulled out the new Remlin and loaded it with FTX and flat point loads. The rifle does go BOOM!!! But the feeding is rough and generally requires a double stroke of the lever to feed.

    This morning I went by Ranger Point Precision and showed them my feed issues. Patrick suggested an action and trigger tune-up to smooth the action and lighten the trigger. Pat said "when I get through with it, you will work the action and not even know you chambered a round".

    So, I left my Remlin there for Patrick to work his magic. The work will cost me $240. I guess I'll have to re-dub the rifle as my $489.00 Remlin.

    I'll post a range report after I get the rifle back and make trip to the range.

    To be continued.............

    Wow.... Sorry to hear that, TS. I've had no problem with my $249 Remlin. Cycles smooth, good feed every time, every trigger pull go BOOM, easy eject.
    I hope you get the problem fixed.

    $489 is still a deal. I paid $599 for my GBL on sale. Did the action and trigger work myself. You get yours done by a pro, and still have $110 less in your rifle than I have in mine. What a bargain!!! Enjoy.
    Best Regards, Tim.

    Great deal, but what a sad state of affairs that we have to rebuild a new rifle to make it useful. Thank God for the guys at RPP !

    Thanks JD. I'm glad to hear yours performs well!

    As for mine, the way I see it, I'm still under the price of a Marlin 1895 and I will have custom tuned action. So, all is well.

    I already have my rifle back! I dropped it off around 10:30 this morning and Patrick called me at 3:30 this afternoon to let me know he was finished.

    Since I live close by, they decided to go ahead and knock it out so I would have it for the weekend.

    Talk about smooth!!!!! I own quite a few older Marlins. I thought I knew what smooth is. There is no comparison. It really is amazing what Patrick did to my rifle. And, like he said - I can't tell when I'm cycling the action that I am feeding a round into the chamber. And the trigger - no creep and I'm guessing about 3 lbs.

    Can't wait to get it to the range.

    I am glad that everything worked out great TS. Its a shame that rifle wasn't range ready OTD. I bought a Remlin 308MX back in 2012 that has worked out great so far. I was one of the few lucky Remlin buyers back then.

    That was very nice of your smith!

    It it were my new gun, I'd put on Silverado and cycle the action while watching the western for two hours.

    I cycled some Hornady 350 round nose load through mine and it worked flawlessly. It'll be a while before I can shoot it.
