Well' just bought a new 1895G. Serial #93xxxx, presumably 2007. Excellent fit,finish, on metal and wood. Action smooth, "see introduction".

What is unbelievable is the condition of some of the new guns I have handled off of dealer shelves.
I'll not elorbrate, just read posts in this fourm, I figured some were exaggerated, truth is they were probably being kind.
Always "check em before you buy em"---just check even closer now.

Have always loved my Marlins,......just at a total loss here. Like my favorite dog just bit me.

A little fuzzy here reading your post. I'm assuming you bought a new rifle that has some issues?

I understand that he bought a NIB 1895G that was manufactured in 2007. A New Old Stock NOS item if you will. Also that he has handled/inspected several new remington marlins and been very dissapointed in their quality.

Right

Didn't want to put this in the rants but the administrators may. Not really ranting, sad part is some
people don't know what they are looking at through no fault of there own. Sad for wife, child, whatever to buy some of these for someone
as a gift or something not knowing the quality thay are getting. Could be a big disapointment for all.

I'm xx years old, my 2x year old daughters could have bought one of these for me.


Pleased with mine---Busy

Hey Busy!!!!!!!

How old is xx?? :)
Don't hold back now.
I'm 56, and will be 57 in less than a month.
I've got four wonderful kids, ranging in age from 30, to 29, to 19, to 15.
Don't be bashful!!! You're among friends.

Keith,

I got a guy that works for me that's close XXX years old! He calls me "Sonny" all the time. Everyone else calls me "Boss" but after I leave the area they call me something else that I'm sure we can't print here! ;D

But, yeah, just how old is xx? Or even oo?

Wade, LMASROTFPIMP!!!

Wade, yes its good to go.
Love these 45-70 rounds
.
Have one set up on an Encore pistol...Barrell
belongs to a friend, a little much for hi
Very accurate, probably not good for a new shooter
as the recoil could cause some very bad shooting habits.
Fun to shoot? Yeah,about three times, then put it up. (Referring to the pistol.)

Hope this GG is as accurate as it is.

Busy,

I am constantly bragging on the guide gun. I often wonder if folks get to the point that they say "Wade, we get it! The Guide Gun is great. Enough already!" But then again I can't help myself. I've shot this caliber for over 40 plus years and had all sorts of original single shots. Now The guide gun is put in my hands and it is my baby!

You're gonna have some fun with it I assure you. I slaughter hogs by the ton with it. Beat the pants off my son on the range and he's shooting a scoped Savage 99 in 308 Win! Ha! Yeah, you're gonn alike this weapon alot.....I wonder if Marlin will deal me in as a salesman for the GG?.......hummmmmm. gotta make sure they get the memo! ;D

I totally agree. When i bought my GS in 2005 from a local shop it sold itself. The wood was beautifull and the wood to metal fit was perfect. I was in a shop the other day and they had two GS's in. And I have to say I wouldnt have bought either. I told the kid's I want mine buried with me, I can not express how much i love this gun.

Abolt, I know what ya mean. My daughter-in-law declaired that she wants me to will her my GG, the old .50 cal Hawken I built many years ago, and the 2nd Mod Colt Dragoon. The day she shot the GG, she went nuts and said to my son, "Honny, buy me one of these. I want one." My boy just shook his head and got real close and said "Thanks pop. Ya just made a monster." Yeah, I did, another Marlin Monster! ;D

WOW!! You have a Colt Dragoon? Last week at the big gun show in KY, one sold for $100,000. That could buy a bunch of Marlins. :)

The Dragoon is not an original. I sold all my original Trapdoors, Colts, Sharps, and a Gallagher crrbine some years ago to get a new house. No more oldies for me now :'( :'(

The Dragoon is a 1969 mfg. ASM marketed by Replicia Arms....

Sad part is that I don't even have the house I sold all those fine old guns for! Wife wanted to move....AGAIN!! So it was all for nothing.....

But, the D-I-L sure likes the guns I've got! Heck, she even said she wants my old Mossburg bolt action 20 ga.! That gal is gun crazy to be sure!
