    1895sbl

    Any info re: the Status of the Marlin 1895SBL. Has Remington got their act together, and fixed the Quality Control. They have been allowing some units out the door that could get someone killed. I am a Prospector in Canada, and the thought of a firearm failure , when charged by a Grizzly is bad for business.

    There are starting to be some encouraging news but don't know for sure. You already know this but I'd never put a new rifle into battle without first trying & testing it.

    I agree, testing is a must. That being said, I have had a few well made firearms fail, even after extensive testing at the range. Anything man made will fail, it's just a mater of time.

    I hope Remington start looking to prevent the damage to the lives, of those who rely on their product to stay alive. If the product is "Good Quality", the customers will always stay. The bottom line and the company will stay.

    I haven't seen a decent one yet here in Wyoming. I will say that when I sent mine back to the factory it was repaired well. Judging from what I have read here I was lucky. The only issue mine had waste that it shot a foot left at 20the yards.

    Looked at a Remlin SBL at Sportsman's Warehouse a couple of days ago. Salesman was proud to show it to me until I pointed out several cosmetic defects. The most blatant one was the rear sling attachment eye protruded out of the stock about 1/4 inch too far leaving an ugly looking gap between it and the stock. Makes a person wonder if Remington has any QC folks with enough integrity and guts to report problems so that the responsible individuals can be identified and counseled or disciplined in some way. Only then will their problems be corrected.
    This firearm could very well shoot good but small cosmetic issues would lead me to believe there could be serious functional issues also.

    I am being to wonder about the upper folks at Remington/Marlin/Idiots/Inc. I am beginning to think that "THEY" think we are a bunch of backwoods, cross bred, uneducated idiots. Thus we would NOT know the difference in the quality of the guns from then to now.........
