I just bought a new 336ss. It really is a beautiful rifle, but I'm worried that it has some flaws that will need tending to under the factory warranty. For starters, I can tell that the sights are not lined up properly, possible a barrel off center? Then I noticed some pretty big gaps where the stock meets the tang. The tang is probably a sixteenth of an inch away from where it should meet the stock. Then I noticed that the magazine tube is off center, it seems to rest on the left side of the fore stock, but it has a big gap on the right side. The rifle does not seem to cycle very easily either, I have cleaned it and cycled the action probably 50 times, but I haven't seen much improvement. I haven't had a chance to put any rounds through it yet to make sure everything else is in proper order, but I plan on doing that this weekend. I'd appreciate some feedback on what should be expected of the quality of this rifle, and if a warranty claim is worthwhile. I'll try to post some pictures as soon as I get a chance! Thanks Guys!
