I have a small Rant to get off my chest so here goes. I have been on the fence with this JM/ REP thing, sitting back, taking it all in, and hoping things would improve enough to go out and buy a sparkling new 336C remlin in 35 Rem. I am fairly new to the .35 Rem caliber, and have been trying to load the 200 RNCL bullets, but as all of you know they are pretty much not available. I have decided today that if Remington is only making enough Components for themselves that they can also stick that New Remlin where the Sun dont Shine ! Winchester Brass, Hornady FTX or Speer, and I just Bid on another JM stamped .35 Marlin 336 made by the "Good Guys" in 2002. Thank You Big Green for making up my mind ! Im off the Fence completely.

Gordy I been hoping they would get the kinks out, have seen improvement in the wood fit. But it sickened me to see the demo guns at Cabelas the other day. Truely laughable to think a company would drag those guns to the shot show and others for people to look at.... Cabelas is got them to sell as used
inventory (I don't blame them either) them guys are selling guns faster than they can set them out. They have a JM stamped cowboy 45/70 and I bet it sells before
those 7 remlins.

I thought it was just me, that could not find the Remington bullets. One might think,that if they wanted to do some business,they would make products available for sale.
I have given up reality for Lever actions, Jeeps and have a wife that understands. It's a better world!

Hey guys, just a thought. Remington is one of the front-runners to get the government contract to build the replacement for the M4 rifle. (God help our troops if they get it) Do ya think maybe they got themselves a deal making ammo for the government and that explains the "shortage" of components? I'm sure all Remington sees right now is $-signs and all their care/effort is directed toward getting that big government contract. Guys like us don't matter to Remington when compared to the flood of cash that will come with a weapons and spare parts contract. Just think, even if we refuse to buy Remington, we'll be forced to buy them via our tax dollars anyway. Don't that just suck....
So the maples formed a union
And demanded equal rights
'The oaks are just too greedy
We will make them give us light'
Now there's no more oak oppression
For they passed a noble law
And the trees are all kept equal
By hatchet, axe and saw

What would you call a Remington made M4? Can't quite get my mind around it.

Have you looked for any (new/used) at your local Gun Show? If you have any that is.
The best part of the hunt is not the harvest but in the experience.
