    I told them this happens far too often, and just send me a refund.
    And they did.

    I will be needing another lever rifle, but in 44 mag.
    I really do like my 1894CB in 357, but I will probably get the Uberti '73 even though it does not come with the octagon barrel.
    Exactly, this on top of the fact that I have already paid the transfer fees for this one since nobody seems interested in stocking a 1895CB. Why marlin couldn't make one just half as nice as the Uberti is beyond me. As much as it pains me to admit I'd bet that an 1895 made in China would be just as good as what Remlin is producing.

    Well, this story beats everything I've heard. OP, certainly Remington is capable of producing an acceptable product as many members here will attest. Yet, they are equally capable of putting out utter turds when the assembly pod only gets 2.5 minutes to assemble one. Consequently, new Marlins amount to a roll of the dice and that is unfortunate. I'm not one to gamble and for that reason, I have nothing but JM Marlins or Henry's.

    FWIW, if this happened to me, I wouldn't be sending it in for repairs, nor would I accept a new Marlin. It's be returned for a dammed refund and buy a JM Marlin or a Henry.

    I shoot cowboy, so Henry is out, and for valid reasons.
    However, I own a Henry Frontier 22LR, and the fit, finish and operation are flawless.
    We use it as a trainer, not a race gun.

    The '73 action is ideally suited for cowboy race gun stuff.
    It is inherently smoother than my 1894CB.

    If/When I pick up a 44 mag, it will be the Uberti for the above reason, and because of the hit-or-miss problems with Marlin quality.

    Agreed, bgavin, Uberti's are cream of the crop. Yet, my mention of Henry was in regards to BBS 45-70 which are fine rifles.

    I happen to love Uberti High Wall rifles.

    Here are some pictures of the rifle, just my cell phone so the quality isn't that great. In the ones with the barrel attached it's just snugged up to the receiver an you can see that it's turned past the point where the flats would be aligned. in the one with the two plug screws you can sort of see that the one on the left is buggered up from having been tightened against the barrel.

    This is as bad as the cracked Remlin Mod 1895 receivers that were shown on MO about 6 or 7 years ago.
