I agree with "Rickys2", there being one too many screws in this gun.
Tremendous force can be generated,with a foreign object, that close to the fulcrum point.
I think it happened after final assembly.

This right here..

Not a case of cnc machine crash or "milling cutter failure" lol!
It's a case of.. "this rifle cycles a little stiff so I'm gonna pull a little harder on the lever"

Oops, let's blame it on Remlin

thats a new one for me...never seen one crack there before.
a replacement lower tang would fix it, assuming nothing else
internally is wrong.

I can honestly say I HAVE NEVER seen this before. If your seller won't exchange it Remlin will fix it and their turn around time is generally really short. QC really needs spanked for this one.

Those photos are disturbing. What's more they are dismaying.
How on earth does Marlin ever let that gun out the door?
Who makes a gun like that and allows it to be sold?
Years ago, when I was deciding to purchase a 30-30 I had a choice: Buy a Winchester 94 or Marlin 336? Even though Marlins sold for 10 percent more than the 94s, I chose the 336 -- and it was worth it. Why? Because Marlin had a well deserved reputation for turning out a more hand-fitted product and not cutting corners.
Thanks to Remington's management, the goodwill that generations of Marlin rifles had achieved has vanished.
Folks, you better take care of your old Marlins. We will never see their like again.
