Re: Been 15 yrs. Looking for new rifle
It may be worth considering a new production Marlin as well. After looking for a JM stamped Marlin, and seeing the premium they are carrying, I bought a Remington production Marlin 1895 GBL. In discussion with the dealer, and from some reading on the Internet, it appears that the rifles coming out of the Ilion, NY factory aren't plagued with the issues the New Haven, CT rifles have/had. Mine is an Ilion production rifle and it's nearly flawless. My only complaint would be that the checkering is not as sharp and defined as some rifles. Otherwise, fit and function are perfect.
