Guess I've been one of the fortunate ones. I've bought 3 Remlins since 2015. A 336SS 30-30, an 1895CB 45-70, and just last year one of the new 444's. Fit and finish on mine are pretty good, and they function good. The laser cut checkering does leave a little to be desired on my 30-30 with no sharpness to the checkering. The checkering on the 444 is pretty good though. The 444 is very accurate. The 30-30 isn't as accurate as I'd like but it'll do.
