I just got my 308mx back after a 6 month wait. It looks like a new gun. Marlin said they just replaced the reciever but it looks like they replaced the barrel too or atleast stamped over the JM. Gun seems solid the sights are lined up right unlike when I got it new. The gun looks good. I haven't gotten to shoot it yet so I can't say how she shoots. The action cycles better and stays closed by itself. Had the rifle sent back for the drooping barrel and for the action not staying fully closed by itself.
