    Those bottom plates are made under contract, with final finishing at RemMarlin. The receiver and trigger plate are polished together so the line is straight and smooth. A machine made the ding, no human is that tough . Somebody had to have seen it. How could you miss it? Pretty sad.

    Quite possibly a miss programming the CNC machine caused the machine to crash into the part. Seen parts like that. Often causes more damage to the machine than the part. A major crash will be heard throughout the plant and floors will shake.

    We call it a CLeM. (Career Limiting Move) In one plant there is an actual trophy award featuring a piece of a half million dollar botched job mounted on a walnut plaque. Often results in being walked to the exit by security.

    Depends on whether it was the setup of the individual machine or if the program was wrong and how fast it was caught before more expensive damage occurred. If it was the program you would expect multiple machines to have the same error. If it was machine setup error on one machine it was the operator.

    Yeah, Mike, you're right. Over the years I've posted several times. I wonder if every rifle is test fired with SAAMI proof ammunition before they stamp the REP on the barrel? Isn't it the law? What if a cracked receiver or bad barrel goes out and blows up in the customer's hands?

    Cool

    Fortunately, I bought all JM Marlins when I decided to buy lever guns. If I wanted a new Lever rifle, I would buy a Henry. They make an excellent firearm, and stand behind their products. I have handled several Henry rifles at a LSG and if I didn't already own two JM stamped Model 1895's chambered in 45-70, I would buy a Henry H010 chambered in that caliber.

    Henry rifles are slightly more expensive than Remlims, which verifies the fact that you get what you pay for.

    Yep send it back along with a major hissy fit at the least, tell them you need a new one asap or the pics go to the press.

    I don't understand why that one was assembled. The worker had to see that when the lever was put in. Bubba is alive and well.
