    Let's hope they fired the maroon, as Bugs Bunny says.

    Well, if it's any consolation, I had to send my new 1894CB back for a warranty repair.

    I got it back in less than 30 days and it is perfect.

    I am not excusing Marlin. And I know that you feel bad. But give customer service a chance to do right by you.

    They make the return process very easy on their website. You will get a return authorization number and a shipping label in seconds.

    Yeah, giving up your new rifle for a while sucks but if you return it they may track down the assembly people involved and provide some remedial training. Hopefully enough returns will lead to an overall improvement.

    I'm convinced that the demand is so high that they are cranking them out. A victim of their own success so to speak.

    I recently returned a Henry 357 lever for glaring tooling marks all down the bore. It happens.

    The receiver itself isn't cracked, it's just the trigger plate. And the ding in the lever. Rem/Marlin should be able to replace the parts and have the rifle back to the OP in short order. But that's not the point. It should never have left the plant.

    I can't believe the employee that did the test fire, the final inspector, then the crew that boxed the rifle for shipment all missed that obvious damage. Something is wrong if a rifle like this is shipped out. Is there a Production Line Manager? Shipping Room Manager?

    I seen that before. There was an officer that came to me to repair his rifle with the same damage. He told me he drop a screw and couldn't find it. Well the rifle was stainless so it was a easy repair. Hammered back the bend area tig weld it and grinded it smooth again. Not saying this is what happen to your rifle, but it looks the same.

    if you look closely at the dent on the lever, you can see what looks like thread marks.

    Another happy customer I see. Hope you have better luck with customer service then I did. Probably try to tell you it's your fault!

    That looks to be a case of "Milling Cutter Failure".................Again, it looks to me like the Bozo's in Ilion are trying to wring out all the parts they can, from an over-used and tired milling cutter..........
    The "Mice"in the Assembly Cell are not allowed to stop the line for something like that..................LOL!

    I'm NOT surprised!
