I found a "91" (2009) MXLR for a good price locally. It has barrel droop, however. Before I spend any money on it:

Would I still be able to get it fixed today?

Obviously, I would not be the first owner. I assume I would call Marlin customer service and go from there, but I was wondering if this is still repairable, and what kind of cost and time frame would be involved. Thanks. I would love to hear from any recent experiences.

If not fixable, would it still be usable/safe?

Doug, the good news is that it's fixable and they will replace the receiver which, is all that is usually needed. I have a contact who works in Marlin tech that will take very good care of you. Shoot me a PM if you're interested.

I sent mine back last May and they replaced receiver. It looks and shoots great now! If I remember correctly it took about 3 weeks to get it back.

Of course you’ll still get a new receiver with an MRxxxxx Ser#. Oh well I guess as long as it’s repaired and SAFE that’s all that matters

My brother had it done to his and it is a tack driver now.

That is true mine came back with an MR serial number too. Now mine is a tack driver and it didn't require any scope mount shims. I didn't buy mine for a collection, I bought mine to hunt with so the JM markings were not that important to me.

I've got the MXLR now (no pictures) but have been too busy to call in for a repair... I wonder how repairs are with all the news about Remington right now.
