  1. Videos: Inside Look into Marlin Firearms Ilion, NY Factory

    MARLIN RANT FORUM
    Ran across a recent article from White Tail Trackers re. Marlin 2018 Quality that included links to two Big Woods Bucks videos from an Ilion, NY factory tour showing Marlin's new $7M worth of machines (I do love CNC machines), each one and which parts are made and how many per day, and...
  2. Remington Quality Improvement

    General Gun Related Off Topic Stuff
    Bought a Remington 870 today, and I think the quality got a lot better than it has been. I checked out a synthetic and a wood one, ended up with the wood one, and I'm happy with it. I put about 50 shells through it and the only slight issue is the ejection is a little weak...I stovepiped once...
  3. Quality Years

    General Gun Related Off Topic Stuff
    I've always wanted a Remington 870 but there's no secret the quality is gone. I held a few in the shop and the stocks were ill-fitted to the receivers, and they just simply feel ugly. I still like the 870 over other models, and they used to be good years ago. That being said, what year did the...
  4. Marlin Quality Since Remington Buyout

    The 45/70 Govt.
    I have been looking into the Marlin 1895G for a couple weeks now. This will be my first Marlin and I'm a little hesitant because of the things I have heard since they got bought out by Remington. Has the quality gotten better since? I put a Marlin 1895G on layaway this weekend. Has the 18.5"...
  5. Remington Arms. A company of character or apathy?

    Rifles
    UPDATE 3 (2/9/2015) This is absurd. Got the 7600 back today, still has all the same issues. The only difference? They installed the single factory part that I had lost. It is just the assembly tube, which in a 7600 is nothing more than a glorified nut that holds the barrel to the receiver. Our...

    336
    Hey Everyone: Well for some time now, I've been kicking around local gun dealers, looking online and even resorted to calling all my hunting buddies....but I'm having a really hard time finding an acceptable Marlin that is for sale, that wasn't manufactured before the Remington takeover...
  7. Update on the Remlin 336w

    336
    Hey everyone, so with the "COLD" weather we got today in N. Ga and some interior house painting going on, I took apart my 336w for the first time after watching a youtube video () an Aussie guy who did a great to the point job of take down. Anyway as I took it apart I was very happy to find...

    Hey everyone, just got a new 336w for Christmas from my fiancee, havn't been able to get out to shoot it yet though :-(. Here's what I'm trying to find out, have you found a certain ammo working for you better than the others? I got a box of winchester super x 170g's and a box of Hornady...
  9. Marlin XT-22 tsr quality concerns and review, hoping for a bit of feedback

    Rimfires
    I just got an XT-22 tsr, which is the tube-fed version in stainless. I have always heard nothing but good things about Marlins, and my godfather literally owns over a hundred of them, a collection that I have always adored, and which really led me to getting this first Marlin of mine. I feel...
  10. Marlin 1895 quality control problems

    The 45/70 Govt.
    Hello I'm new to the forum and I'm thinking about getting a new Marlin 1895. I've been reading various reviews about this gun that I've found online and I've seen a lot of positive reviews; however, I've also found numerous posts from people who have posted information indicating that Marlin...
  11. 1895stbl

    The 45/70 Govt.
    Hello everyone, I just found a "new in box unfired" 1895stbl I was wondering what the likely hood of it being new is? The pictures they show seem to be of a 1895, stainless, large loop, extended mag, walnut stock, and forearm 1895. I was under the impression that the stbl wasn't produced for...
