A post on GBO said a gunsmith had taken 12 barrels off the XS-7's and they were missing threads on the barrel shank. Wondering if Dangerous Dan had seen this on the one's he's worked on? If they are put on correctly, should be a non-issue until someone takes them off. Just wondering. DP

Yes There Is If Your Barrel Has REM or REP stamped On It It will be Missing Threads . I am The Gunsmith who Found Them . I have been very tight liped about it But It is a Mess and a Joke all in one . I won't say Much More It seems The barrels are on XS7 models . DD In My eyes Marlin Is the victum of big bussness but what sucks is selling sub standard guns To Us shooters at full price At this point I don't trust them at all .

Well, mine's an XL7 and it has a JM proofmark, so it should be fine.

DD, as much as I hated to do it, I had to check my XS7, with my usual luck, my barrel has rep stamped on it, I thought awhile ago it might be one of the good ones, since it has North Haven,stamped on it, should have known better. The biggest question is, is this a unsafe situation, since I never anticipate removing the barrel. Tks. T REX

This "missing threads" fiasco is going to be a black eye to Marlin and I'm sure it will affect their X7 sales. Another downside to this is that it's not going to take Savage, Mossberg, and TC long to capitalize on this either, either in their advertising, the media, or on the internet. If there is a safety concern over this then Marlin (or Remington) just might issue a recall or usage warning. If it so happens that this ends up being the case then it will just go along or be added to all Remington's other usage warnings, such as M700 accidental discharges, M597 rifles and ammo, and the latest one, the Versa Max shotgun. This is indeed an unfortunate incident and I somehow can't believe that Marlin wasn't aware of it. All us X7 fans will just have to wait and see how all this plays out.
By the way, I just found 3 XS7's in my inventory that has the REP stamping.

This may offer an opportunity for us before its all over with.
The company has to decide whether is cheaper to fix or liquidate.

Keep your eyes open for huge discounted sales of XS7's.

I'm a little confused, in your rant section, you say it's not new, as you have seen this in Marlins for the last 3 years, now your saying it's just the recently built Remington's. So my question to you is which is it. Only on the Remington built guns or have you seen this on North Haven guns also?
