The replacement guide gun 1895G has arrived. At first I thought I had a rifle with the same condition! Bent Buckhorn or slightly canted barrel, but, turns out the buckhorn just wasn't centered, so I grabbed my brass punch and carefully drifted it center and VOILA! Good to go! I can tell you all that this is a very nice guide gun, fit and finish look great! The ONLY issue, is the inconsistent depth of the checkering. In places it is nice and deep, but you can see where it "lightens" up and then gets deep again...so, if you can overlook that...and you do have to look for it! This is a very nice shoulder cannon!
Here are the pics, I tried to get a closeup of the checkering....so we'll hopefully it shows up well!
Lots of Marlins!
Just bought a new700 adl in 270 while on vacation . Came with the cheap mounted scope no biggie it can go in the pile of extras . Upon looking at the scope was not mounted straight . Once I fixed it I realized the cross hairs were crooked to begin with ,just gave it back to my lgs and he send he would send it back

I wonder how many of those barrels that get returned get reused. I just don't have a whole lot of trust for rifles remington mass produces anymore. The new sporting 1100's seem fine and the custom shop produces some beautiful stuff, the 25-20 ammo that they produced a few years ago all has gone bang, but the mass produced rifles have had an awful lot of problems. I guess if you have not handled, hunted with a 60's or 70's marlin or 700 you have nothing to compare the new ones to. I remember a 7400 I picked up in the early 90's. Its one of about only 3 or 4 guns I had ever sold or traded in my life, It was a piece of -----, I could not get rid of it fast enough, ended up trading it for a henry 22 mag and I was a happy camper.
i've been pining those browning 53's and 65's for quite some time now
