Hi,

I got lucky a few years ago and came across a pre-Remlin 1895GS.
This was a pretty important detail to me at the time as Remington had not yet worked out the quality issues after buying Marlin.

My question: Is this still as big a deal as it used to be, and how/does it effect the value of the rifle?
Are buyers willing to pay more for pre-Remington, or is it more of a personal preference?

Thanks.

For me its about nostalgia and tradition.
When I wanted to buy a 336 to replace the 2 I'd owned previously I looked at a Remlin at Wally with the plywood stock and matte finish. I thought "What has Marlin done to themselves?" If it looks cheap on the outside the build inside has to be cheap as well.
Then I came here to MO. I was not aware of the Remington buy out and the QC problems they were having at the time until I read posts here. I decided, for the memories at least to look for a JM.
I found one, a good one and I could not be happier.

As time goes on, even more so. They're never going to make 'em like they used to. AC
