Sent my 1895 GBL in for repairs back in April and when it came back it was still not fixed. Sent it back out and it was delivered back to be repaired on 5/12/11. The gun has still not returned and in order to track it on marlins website it says I need the last 4 digits of the repair number which I don't have. How would I get this repair number it seems like it should have been sent with the packing slip? After the experience I have had with this new remington made marlin I will never buy one again. My JM stamped 336 BL has been flawless while my remington made 1895 GBL has been out for repairs since I have purchased it three months ago.
1-800-544-8892 when the automated system starts up push 4 then push 3. That will get you where you want to go. They will need your serial number and they will be able to give you the repair order number. I call them at least once if not twice a week. The website still list my rifle as being checked in on May 26th but when I call they tell me its on the bench and the smith is working on it. They can't give me a time when it will be done or any other info.
Thats interesting.............they can push, to build a rifle every 135 seconds, but it takes months to repair one!Originally Posted by skmarsh77
Treat others the way you want to be treated.
Right. I can only imagine how many rifles are in for repairs right now.
I'd be scared to send one in for repairs now. Think about it, if they couldn't recognize the problem when the gun was built, how are they going to recognize it when it's returned for repairs?
Oh snap, that explains what's happening with the still defective "repaired" guns.

I got the email yesterday that my 1895M is in transit back to me after repair. The initial email from Marlin (Remington) was dated 1 June, when they received it and signed for it after I sent it back, NIB. (2008 rifle) Mine seemed to function fine with both factory loads and had a good trigger, but the wood to metal fit was horrendous with large gaps between both the receiver and upper and lower tangs and butt stock. I am curious to see what it looks like when it arrives next Wednesday.
It's our duty to guarantee the rights and freedoms given to us by those who sacrificed for us.
I called today about my SBL and it has been repaired,test fired, and is now awaiting final inspection. should ship out next week. I hope its better than my 336BL I just got back from being repaired. I thought it came back all set but I looked at it again today. the sights line up with each other now and if you look at it quick it all looks good. but I was looking down the rifle from the back at the end of the stock and It looks twisted. the receiver and the stock kinda go left and the barrel and forearm go right. I was so focused on the sites when it came back that I really didn't look at it as a whole. I'm calling Tuesday to get a refund. I like the gun but I am done. Like I said I hope my SBL is right cause I'll send that back for a refund too if its not.
I think only Obama can relate to that number .Originally Posted by skmarsh77
