Has anyone got a 338 MX with the 91 serial # that didn't have any problems? My local dealer ordered one for me and I got one of the dreases 91s. Fit up looks pretty good.It cycles pretty smooth too. I'll boresight it this weekend and find out. HOPING FOR THE BEST/ PREPARING FOR THE WORST.

I have one, but it's a very early 91 with 4 0's after the 91 and the JM proofmark. It hasn't had any problems and shoots really well. If you haven't seen it, here is a picture.

I got one that didn't have the "droopy" barrel but did have a rough chamber. Remington replaced the barrel and everything is fine. No shimming the scope before barrel replacement or after. Has always grouped good. Mine is a 91 with 2 zeros after it if that helps, Lonnie.

I think 92's and 93's are probably OK! But 91's are a crap shoot, unless You know what your looking for then buyer beware. Look at all the posts here! the problems have been described over and over! In the case of my gun I was naive and let the little flaws go because I didn't know what to look for but I do now! thanks to this site and the people here with all there knowledge! Live and learn the hard way that's the way I do it. Oh well, Dennis

;D I can. If you get one that functions properly, it's a gun you will thoroughly enjoy.

My 91 has been flawless and shoots better than most of my other rifles in the rack. It's a 912002xx run and it does have the JM proof. I'd be curious as to how your guns' sn falls compared to mine. I don't think mines all that low of a number. Although i do have the XLR.

Hal! I know, the one I got shot a great group in the dirt! I have all the dies, powder, bullets, cases, six box's of LE ammo but no gun! It's a weird kind of pain but I can take it as the 308 has filled the gap for now. Dennis
