I have been looking into the Marlin 1895G for a couple weeks now. This will be my first Marlin and I'm a little hesitant because of the things I have heard since they got bought out by Remington. Has the quality gotten better since? I put a Marlin 1895G on layaway this weekend. Has the 18.5" barrel, big loop lever action, and 6+1 tube. I glanced over everything and all looked well. But after some research I'm going to go back and take a closer look at the chamber, ejection port, barrel, and front sight. If anyone has any info on their current quality or a link to it that would be much appreciated. Thanks.
