Re: JM stamp .35 rem
I dont own any 336's but have handled a ton of them years back when I was working in a local gun shop. They always seemed like very well built guns and we sold two Marlins to every Winchester 94. I have read alot of claims about the newer ones being junk and/or not as well made as the pre Remington guns. I have handled a few of the newer guns that were made by Remington and personally I havnt seen anything that I would consider lower quality? The fit and finish seems the same as any other Marlin that I have ever handled. What exactly is it about the new ones that makes them lesser quality guns; metal strength, manufacturing tolerances, parts tolerances, accuracy, function, ect? I understand that the JM stamp has a collectors following, but what makes the Remington guns lesser quality?
Good luck, Tony
