    General Gun Related Off Topic Stuff
    I have recently learned the new term "remlin"..curious about my new 1894c...i spent $699 on it in .357/38. im worried about the serial numbers of these numbers indicate a bad year for these rifles?
  2. My 2013 357. Update.

    Hi. I was just kicking around in the .22 forum and thought I would just post a quick update on the 2013 1894 C I bought new, made in Ilion New York stamped on the barrel. I shoot about 150 rounds a month with it and have done so since I bought it. Lead heads and my own cowboy action load. It...
  3. Warning read owners manual.

    Cowboy Rifles
    Hey all just a quick question. When did the 1895 cb rifles cease to have the "Warning read owners manual" stamp on barrel? Or did Remmington just forget to stamp it. I personally like it not being there.
  4. Marlingtons/Remlins that just might be worth it

    I do some business with Turnbull Restorations here and there and was just on the phone with Dennis who is one of their shop foreman's/repair contact. I saw on their website them selling redone Marlin 336's Marlin 336C - Turnbull Manufacturing I asked him what they were refinishing and they are...
  5. New 336C how's current quality

    So I'm new to this forum, and new to Marlin ownership. I never owned a lever action before, and from everything I had seen, Marlin was the way to go for a decent rifle under $600. Mine cost $475 from Buds online, it's still shipping and then there is a 10 day wait. I'm starting this thread to...

  7. JM Stamp

    General Gun Related Off Topic Stuff
    Hi, I got lucky a few years ago and came across a pre-Remlin 1895GS. This was a pretty important detail to me at the time as Remington had not yet worked out the quality issues after buying Marlin. My question: Is this still as big a deal as it used to be, and how/does it effect the value of...
  8. Recent "improvements" to Remlin 1894s disqualify them

    Ranger Point Precision
    Dear MOF members, Like many of you here on this forum, we at RPP have been hopeful that Remington would put their considerable resources to work fixing quality issues with the Marlin rifles. We saw some fit improvement over the last year or so, and it seemed the future was looking up. But while...
  9. 45/70 ***?

    The 45/70 Govt.
    Hello all. I picked up a Remlin 1895 SSteel 45/70 last year from a local pawn shop. I gave it a few days, did my research, went back and did not see any of the fit/finish/etc problems I was warned about, so I went ahead and bought it. Story was, some guy bought it new, put 11 rounds through it...
  10. Bought a 336 today...

    Well, put it on layaway to be exact. Yes, its a "remlin" but its in mint condition, with a big scope and hard case for $340 OTD whereas just the rifle at Wally-World is $400 here. Oh yeah it's the W model. Unfortunately I didn't grab any pictures but I will be updating this thread with pix once...
  11. NEW Marlin 336C vs Henry .30-30

    First post here, so I hope I'm in the right place. Only firearm I own is a Remington 770 in 30-06 (purchased in 2010), but have military experience, so have fired a variety of firearms and rounds, but no expert by any means. After a couple years, I realize a 30-06 is a little OP for CA...
  12. New Remlin or used JM Marlin?

    The 45/70 Govt.
    I'm going to buy a 45-70 in the next few months. I have the choice between a brand new Remlin or one of a couple of used JMs (one is "90%", other is "99%" condition) There isn't much difference in price. Which would you go for? Thanks.
  13. Another serial number question from a Marlin newb...

    Hello all, I've researched on this forum and others, and have yet to nail this down. Forgive me for raising another serial number question, but I bought a pre-owned Remlin 336ss from Cabela's last week in what I think is in remarkable condition. I almost believe it was in their new inventory...
  14. New 1895 SBL serial numbers starting with "MR"

    The 45/70 Govt.
    Hello all! This is my first post, I am in the process of buying a new remlin 1895 SBL. My somewhat local gun shop has a few of these new with varying serial numbers and would like some clarification if possible. What would the date of manufacture be on a serial # MR96xxxd or MR02xxxe be? I...
  15. new remlin 336w owners any good stories?

    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...
  16. WTB Marlin 1895 45/70 SBL or GBL - Pre Remlin

    The 45/70 Govt.
    Hi everyone. I'm looking for a Marlin 1985 45/70 SBL or possible GBL - preRemlin.  If you are selling, or know of someone who is, please message me. I'd like to know the serial number of the gun if you have access to it, and the manufacturing year. Beyond that, it doesn't have to be "perfect"...
  17. One more nervous new guy...

    Welcome New Members
    Have some family history with a Marlin that is long gone. Now we have a teenage son and are going to the range on occasion, killing paper targets & clay pigeons. I have explained to him how beautiful that old .357 was that my Gramp had and was stolen. It pleased the eye, even when I was a boy...
  18. Is my 1894 a Remlin??

    I am completely new to this forum, or any forum for that matter, so bare with me! Let me start by saying that I believe that a Marlin rifle is as good as they get. Love them. I have been doing some research in regards to the pre/post Remington Marlin lever guns. I have a Model 30AS, from the...

  20. New Remlin 1894c Trigger ?

    I just picked up my 1894c today and it looks great. I have no complaints about the fit and finish, looks just about flawless. The action needs a little smoothing but I sure it will be better with a good clean and some rounds down range. Only one thing that bothers me a little..The trigger as a...
