    Does Marlin/ Remington have this for Checkering gunstocks?

    This is how checkering should look.

    Yes,that is what Rem uses.Laser checkering sucks.It does not give you well defined points in the checkering.Machine checkering is much better.Better yet nothing beats a talented hand checkered stock.Laser checkering is all about speed and doing it cheap and any idiot can run the laser with little to no training.I would rather they not checker the stock then put this substandard junk on it.It just makes the stock look cheap.JMHO,OB

    In large part, I agree with OlBIKER. The majority of firearm MFG'ers have gone to laser and the earlier versions of these wonder machines burn the wood and leave the checkered area darkened. While better than the cheese grater checkering Remington uses on most of the Marlins, I much prefer the CNC checkering that Marlin North Haven employed but Remington discarded it when moving to the plant to Illion.

    Better yet, Remington ought to employ using better grade walnut and just leave it smooth. Nothing beats the traditional look that shows off the beauty of walnut.

    Welcome from SW Ohio.

    Interesting video.

    Agree with the comments above.

    It's a wonder that we haven't yet seen checkering on some of the Remlins that were inserted into the machine backwards...

    Smooth wood rules, hands down. IMO of course.

    Now that was chuckle worthy.

    Welcome to the forum greenfox2.
    I also like the old style hand checkering best.
    The laser cut checkering sure does allow for a lot of variety that would be cost prohibitive to do any other way. I should clarify, cost prohibitive to most people.

    Checkering does nothing for me, I much prefer smooth over any factory checkering, I know it's traditional, helps maintain grip, bla, bla, but frankly I feel it's more of an ornament then a useful accessory....ymmv.

    I don't like checkering on a lever rifle.
