I picked up one of these a week ago and my first impression of it was favorable. It was a secondhand gun that probably had not seen 20 rounds through it and looked like brand new. By the date code on the barrel looks like it was made in 2016 and I soon found out it would jam if it was not held almost perfectly level. Tilt it a little left or right it would lock up. Took a lot of fitting between the lever and the locking bolt to get it to function right. Looks like as of 2016 a Remlin was still a kit gun.I like the rifle as far as the concept of the 18.5 inch octagon barrel and straight stock but was not happy to have to work it over to make it work right. Did they just slap these together with no hand fitting or function check at all?
