Well ladies and gentleman my first post is not a happy one. Touchy feely perhaps. A touch ticked off and feeling pretty sick. My tenth anniversary last year and I dumped a big wad of cash on a ring for the woman of my dreams. That's not sarcasm, she is worth every cent and more. I had been itching for a new lever gun and had to choose between a Browning, Winchester, or Marlin. I own Winchesters and Marlins and am still a little put off by Browning prices so I decided to go with Marlin because of the new .338 offering. My wife couldn't find one in time so she waited until now. My local gun shop owner helped her find one and she ordered it for me. Of course not knowing anything about guns she never opened the box. Heck who would Marlin is a trusted name right? Wrong!!!! This thing is junk. Floppy trigger, Bad bluing on top of barrel, Bad stock and forearm fit at receiver, The slot through the bolt where the lever is engaged looks like it was chiseled by hand, rough finish inside the barrel - grabs the patch when oiling, and last but by no means least drum roll here yup you guessed it, Barrel droop. Of course its a 91 serial number. But on the bright side other than feeling like gravel it feeds and ejects shells just great. But what the hay, it should for a $562 paper weight. It's going back A.S.A.P. Anyone have any good results getting one of these repaired or replaced? Do they come back like they should have been to start with? My wife is heart broke, makes me want to find a new gun shop but its not really his fault either. I'm taking it all out on Marlin. Its open season on poor quality and I demand satisfaction.
