    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.

    After getting rid of a problem Remlin 308MX and a problem Rem Mod 700 (both made after they were acquired by Freedom Group), I share that sentiment. Saw a pretty decent looking Remlin 444 Marlin at the LGS this week---not up to JM standards but much better than the horrific run of 2010-2015 Remlins. Threads like this remind me to only LOOK at a new Remlin or other new Big R products. Needless to say--I left the Remlin 444 Marlin sitting in the gun racks.

    Thanks for all the reply's, now I'm wondering if it would make sense to consult with a lawyer. I know...but at some point there is only one way to get someones attention and if myself and my friends who fired this rifle were in danger then it won't bother me one bit.

    Op,

    DEMAND a refund, and also compensation for any silly California fee's you had to pay...........

    Have you looked at the primers in your last fired cases............I'll bet the primers are all very proud of the case head, 'cuz your Head Space was completely gone!

    Some here think I'm just mad, or sore about the way the North Haven employee's were treated by Remington............I'M NOT!...........We were all adult enough, to take their unethical treatment, and we did,...............'cuz we knew we were right, and on the "High Road".

    BUT!..........Remington has built CRAP to offer consumers in the market..........OK, not all of it, but Most of it.....................And I bet I could find "issues" with even the so called good ones............

    Henry and Uberti must be gaining a lot weight, eating Remington's and Marlin's lunch...............

    OP, get a refund, and shop for another manufacturer's rifle, or a pre 2010 Marlin............

    Sorry for your distress, but it may serve as a lesson to others..............12 years after acquiring Marlin, and 10 years of trying to build Marlins on their own *, ..............they deserve to go out of business, now..............

    * We in North Haven were told by Joe Gross Rem COO (at the closing) "These rifles are easy to build........... They can be built anywhere, buy anybody"...........I think that he may have even said Monkeys could build them.........Oh, Joe....you wuz so smart...........

    The employees are prob punished financially if they don't make the ridiculous quotas.
    Oh this is all undoubtedly a consequence of the Freedom Group buying and gutting the companies. I just hate that these iconic American gun companies are spitting out so much crap now.

    I was lucky to grown up with Pre 64 Winchesters, Dupont era Remingtons, Pre or early Bangor Punta Smith and Wessons, and Colts made before I was born in the Mid-70's. I didn't get into Marlins until a few years ago, but I stuck with JM guns.

    Winchester quality dropped off in the early 60's (even the late Pre 64 guns started getting sloppy), Smith and Wesson and Colt started dropping off in the early-mid 70's, and Remington and Marlin actually held on well past the declines of the others, but the freedom group has absolutely destroyed them now.

    It's sad.

    You can take the wrong person who can put together a perfectly made batch of parts and end up with crap, or you can take a pile of crap and a craftsman can make it in to a fine firearm.

    When you have corporate raiders they are only interested in getting what they can out of the company before they dump it. I just hope these companies can recover before they fail completely and go away.

    The little QR square and the serial number on the receiver tells Management exactly where that gun was built. It's been tracked start to finish. If Remington Outdoor really cared, they can know every person that touched that firearm.

    That's just not sloppy work, that's Criminal Negligence. Something that poorly made can blow up.

    Dear Friends.......if you are considering spending hundreds of dollars on a Marlin .....please......please.....buy an inspected JM......almost the same price....night and day percentage difference in QC.....it's not a perfect answer....there are good Remlins and bad JM's......but if you are playing the odds...and inspecting the weapon first......please buy a JM......they also preserve their value forever.

    Do you have any fired cases from ammo you shot through that rifle? If so, it would be interesting to take a look at those.
