    I've got 2 way pre Remington Marlins that have crooked sights. About a 1/16" to 3/32". If you determine the amount of offset adjust them so they will always be off the actual offset of the sights. Otherwise the point of aim on long shots you'll be all screwed up as the rounds will cross the sight picture.

    Scope is on. I’m liking it. It sits a bit high using the QD rings I have, but I’m going to give it a whirl as is before I go and buy lower rings. Ideally, these will work fine, and I’ll be able to take the scope off and use the new Skinner I ordered if needed.

    I also cleaned 4 other lever guns, a bolt and my semi-auto waterfowl gun. Some were long overdue, but none were really dirty. I will just sleep better knowing they are all cleaned and oiled up.

    Pic on the bench, and with some of it’s safe-mates...

    That’s putting it mildly... Do you think they are oblivious, or just don’t give a crap?

    I have a remlin 45-70 with a scope it shoots very accurate. I have a stainless 30/30 remlin I have not shot much yet. My question how stigmatized are the end of the line real Marlins? I have the impression the 2005-2007 Marlins are less desirable?

    please correct me if I am in error.

    Obviously they don't. A set procedure, with an adequate fixture holding parts, with a consistent zero +- .005" (considered to be a generous tolerance that is utilized by a basically trained operator would solve the problem) Of course the machine needs to up to snuff.

    Ebb, of Green Acres fame, could be trained in 15 minutes to produce perfect parts on a working milling machine purchased from Mr. Haney!

    It's too bad you've got the issues...BUT! One thing new Marlins have on our older JM's is the cool laminate stocks! Man, they look good. I got a 1984 336CS that would love a set.

    Absolutely! All my Marlins have been and are 'JM's. Currently down to 6, from 8. Them, and other great investments helped my daughter and son through college.

    Yeah, I like laminate for a working gun.

    I recieved my Skinner Lo Pro II today, and am working on getting it filed down a wee bit to fit the dovetail.

    I have to add a serious thank you to Andy at Skinner. They shipped my sight out back in late January, and it made it to the local distribution center on the 2nd of Feb, and in 11 days, it hadn’t made it another 20 mins down the road. Andy shipped me a second sight and it arrived two days later. It certainly wasn’t his doing that caused the first one to disappear, but he sure made good on others shortcomings!

    Skinner Skinner chicken dinner!
