Because people are using the JM stamp as a selling point.

The jm stamp is a selling point, the jms are far superior than the remlins, the little extra coin is worth it, the prices seem to be rising so look at it like an investment.

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

Re: JM stamp .35 rem

Tony, check out www.marlinowners.com. There's a sub-forum for the model 336. The consensus seems to be that the newer "Remlins" are getting better, but there are still some issues with build quality and accuracy.
