If his has been asked before, please excuse!! At what serial number Remlins did the new Marlin bunch get their functioning issues fixed!! I have read and experienced, at the local gun shop, some of the horror stories after the move to Remington!! There was an article in one of the gun rags that they had brought a guy in from the old factory to fix the mess!! I have a new model that shoots and functions as it should and is quite accurate!! WONDERING??
