    I believe we WANT to see better quality coming out of Remington. I have been hearing reports of higher quality rifles and that's a good thing.

    I wouldn't call people on this site "fan boys" of JM Marlin, I doubt that anyone wanted to see Remington go belly up. They screwed up,
    pissed off life long customers, and that is the source of the anger.

    Hopefully we can move on and Remington will keep making quality rifles, and gets out of the hole they dug for themselves.

    I think the “learning curve” and bad PR forced Freedom Arms to correct what they were producing. Seems like the complaints are less and the issues with the rifles have been fixed. I suppose that like many of us the thought of a Marlin not being made by Marlin and not in the original factory is tough to accept. There was something special about a JM stamped rifle, it represented a part of America that is disappearing, the “little guy” competing with corporate giants by having a slice of the market. Where the guy on the floor saw the owner and made a product with care. I have a 1895 made in 2017 and it’s a good gun, function, fit, and so, far reliable. But I will admit it, owning a JM Marlin is an privilege. Just my thoughts, sounds like you are happy with your new gun, as I am with mine. Enjoy it and hope it becomes a family heirloom.

    I purchased an XT22M this spring for $225 and the trigger is great and it functions smoothly. I’m happy.

    I have a brand new 1895 45 70 that fit and finish is just fine,I will admit I'am partial to JM stamped rifles,just grew up with them. In my area people are kinda snobby about their Marlins.

    I hope that some day soon I will be able to retract my old post regarding Remlins saying, "Even a blind squirrel sometimes finds a nut."

    The OP's post is encouraging.

    My 1894CB is 2019 production, and wonderful fit and finish.
    No regrets.
