Does anyone have one of the newer 44s in stainless? If so how is it? What issues with it? Im considering buying one.
Glad you got it working, an 1894 in any caliber is a joy to behold! My take on NY made guns up till now is this. Most all the parts on your gun were likely made by the old Marlin anyhow and once the problems of assembly are fixed they should be good guns as well. It will be interesting to see the new ones that have parts manufactured elsewhere. The old Marlin did practically everything themselves whereas I understand Remington will outsource. Should be interesting to see if they can pull it off!L Pete said:I have one with a 2009 serial number, but I know it was put together in Ilion.....
It had a feeding problem when I purchased it, and I fixed that.....it is the best shooting 1894 that I have ever owned.....this one is #3.
I love it now......
What a beautiful collection that you have put together! I'm seriously affected by envy at seeing your pic. ;D I have never even seen in person, much less handled a Marlin 357 in stainless. I do own one blued and a 44 and 45/70 in stainless though. Some nice lookin' wood on yours too. Thanks for posting the pic. Regards,Golfbuddy45 said:ALL my Marlins are STAINLESS - - - - -
