The assembly cell gets 135 seconds to build the rifle. I'm not sure if the cell receives a barrelled action, or the 135 is starting from scratch. Best to disassemble any new firearm, clean up the dust, dirt, assembly lube, metal shavings, etc etc before shooting. This goes for any brand of gun. I always do it even to used guns as soon as I get them home. It's smart to clean and inspect the barrel for blockages.

Wonder if they have any sort of tracking on a gun as it is built? Someone should be out of a job for that one. That's not just sloppy work, that's someone who purposely rigged up a gun to push it down the line. Whoever built that should be fired immediately, along with whomever checked it before it went into a box (if anyone did).
That was a ticking time bomb.
Whoever is sending the gun back to Marlin for repairs, I really hope you take the advice above and get a full refund. Then you can find a JM ........ (or Henry if it's not for cowboy?) Best of luck to you both.

This is an iron clad case demonstrating Remington's intentions, their very soul, so to speak. Push marketing propaganda via gun rags of precision CNC machine work, eluding to quality, and when they machine a receiver amounting to a TURD, Jerry rig to pass it off on an unsuspecting customer. It bothers Remington not one iota taking folks hard earned dollars who purchase in good faith. If Remington can slip one by, and the customer not figure it out so it doesn't return, or worse, detonate while firing it, perfectly acceptable.
How can anyone have an ounce of faith in Remington's supposed quality control with their intentions demonstrated in this example?
I'll never roll the dice with any Remington product.

I'll tell you who should be fired, it's the management that forces them to spit out a rifle every 135 seconds, there is no time to do the job correctly.
They are just slapping them together at breakneck speed.
The employees are prob punished financially if they don't make the ridiculous quotas.
They also have a well known higher rate of jams when running at race speed.
Depending on the model, the HBB is about a full pound heavier.
For most cowboys, the '73 toggle-link is the preferred action.
It is literally butter-smooth, fast and very reliable.
Winchester is near race-ready right out of the box, but parts are scarce.
The Uberti needs a bit more work to be race ready.
