Send them here to New Zealand as we are so far away that returning them is a real task.

A bit of bailing twine and some #8 fencing wire and we fix them enough to take bush anyway.

It does seem like it doesn't it. At least the repair deptment does do something to them, doesn't sound like it's often right, but they do something. :mad:

It's pretty sad when your Quality Control Inspectors are your End User Customers.
I don't see the need to EVER make a NEW GENERATION MARLIN RAVE FORUM.

Kon, Brother,

That just goes with the new business plan..............That eliminates the need to have the Inspectors on the payroll....................They're on sort of a "reverse payroll", if you think about it..........They pay upfront to inspect the product!
Its genius, actually........It gives real creedance to the final QC report, by eliminating the "Middleman" and all his pay and benefits.

Gee, I wonder why the Economy is bad for people making under $150,000/Year ?
Think of all the "Undocumented" Inspectors on their "Reverse Payroll", and all the Profits they are making for the Management.
It's just a horrible way to do business. They're just hoping enough people just "settle" for the pieces of crap they are selling. Kind of like the odds at the Casino, except that Remington is "The House", and they'll always be able to hide the profits.

In the sixties Remington recycled the steel in defective receivers after putting a bend in the part so no-one could try to salvage one and build a gun. Why do I have the suspicion that is not true anymore? I must be cynical. Or Remlin is reusing as much of the returned guns as they think they can get away with.

What does Remington do with the defective ones?

From the size of this growing forum, I'd say they sell them to the public.

They should save all the defective rifles, set up a training class, hire the previous Marlin work force as instructors (at twice their old salary) and show the new workers how to properly build a Marlin. But the problem with that plan is that the former Marlin employees would probably tell management to put it where "the sun don't shine". And the main reason it wouldn't work is that you can't develop the craftsmanship skills of good a gunsmith over night. Face it; the "expertise" is gone! ::) :-[

I don't think there is defective ones. There are just the ones that they have to sell 2 or 3 times. ;)

Doc,

Well they Refurbish WeedWackers, ChainSaw's,, Lawnmower's, & Such,, so I don't know,, But:

I do wonder if they don't Refurbish them,, maybe add an "R" in the s/n, for Refurbish and sell them to another Country??? Surely Not though!!!

I don't know,, but do wonder.

I read where one fellow over in Germany bought a Marlin 22,, chambered in S, L, & LR,, but the S was X'd through!!! Maybe that was a Refurbished one that didn't Feed Shorts very good.

Kenken - You may of hit on something. I think there are only about 100 bad Marlins, it's just that they keep being sent back out to other parts of the country for sale. We need to start a serial number list on here somewhere of any "dogs" we see, and then we can "track" these guns progress around the country. Model, caliber, serial number, where, when. Just my 2 cents. Shenandoah

It's really sad that a company has that little respect for it's end users. Especially those of us that really try very hard to purchase "Made In The USA" products. Maybe the ATF needs to step in from a safety standpoint since they are manufacturing firearms or at least shut them down until they can prove their Quality Assurance Program. This makes me sick.

Sends them to Australia. Saw a post the other day about getting them because they are cheaper.
