    Remlin Checkering

    I can't believe that more people on this site aren't complaining about the quality of the checkering on the Remlins .....

    The ones that I have looked at have terrible checkering when put side-by-side with a JM Marlin.

    I don't know what process Remington use to do the checkering but it doesn't hold a candle to the JM quality workmanship.

    I agree. It looks like a beaver and a muskrat teamed up to do the checkering.

    That's why they've gone to all those "All Weather" stocks. They can't figure out how to do wood. Best to just mold the stocks.

    Exclamation

    Lets face it, Marlin belongs in the History Books. Remington Outdoor belongs in the Trash.

    If you're selling any of your genuine Marlins, don't give them away, get your money.

    Not defending Remington but when I am in my LGS most of the brands have the same so called "checkering" on them. Recently looked at Begarra, Browning, Ruger and Tikka T3 and the trash checkering was on all of them. They must have all bought the same garbage laser cutting tools or what ever they use to put the new awful checkering on with. The Weatherby Vanguard on the rack still had the machine cut nice feeling checkering on it. The new CZ 457 has decent checkering on it but not as good as years back that was on the 452 rifles. The 457 is a better example of this new way of checkering without machine cutting or hand work. This new garbage is almost impossible to improve by using hand checkering tools because the lines are crooked and merge into lines beside each other and the tool wants to go where the line merges over and it is a bear to get that line straight and not lose a diamond in the process. I have seen examples that a line will go across 4 or 5 lines right through the tops of the diamonds. Good luck trying to straighten that one out. I would just as soon have the smooth wood than the crap checkering that is being used today. I believe it will stay bad or possibly get worse on the new guns.

    There have been plenty of complaints about the Remlin checkering in previous threads.

    I have sent an email to Remington requesting a replacement stock and told them that they should be ashamed to send a new gun out of the factory in that condition. They didn't even respond to me. That tells me they have no concern about the customer. I shall look to a different manufacture for my next rifle.
