I just recently broke down and purchased a NIB 1895. It just came in so it's a newly manufactured riffle. I'm a little concerned about what I've read on this forum concerning the reciever being cracked where the mag tube meets it. Is this still an ongoing problem or has Remlin fixed it? BTW, the metal and wood finish on this rifle is not as good as on my 1990s 336CS in 30-30. But I don't mind, I did not buy it to be a gun safe queen. I bought it to shoot and hunt.
