    The 336 I got a couple years ago was very reliable and accurate. How is the quality at this point in time. Is Remlin learning to make Marlins properly or have they slid backwards?

    I do not know much about when they were junk and when they improved. I had a good one so I am oblivious to when or if they were ever good or bad after Remington took over.

    I think the newest ones are okay and seem to function fine and the stock to metal fit is pretty good also. They completely reblueprint the1894 44 Magnum rifle and are supposed to do the same with the 1894C 357 Carbine.
    I noticed in a recent Marlin ad they now have a Marlin Custom Shop to order a custom lever action.

    Meaning, there are enough used JM's on the market to last a couple of lifetimes. I've even found a couple of NIBs recently and plenty that are in newish condition.

    I have concern about the new Marlins, especially metallurgy and 94's based on Ranger Point Precisions analysis on another website.

    No need for me to buy a Remilin but I don't begrudge the choice of others.

    From what I heard the latest Remlins at the SHOT Show were pretty decent guns, but unsure if that's a good example, as I'd expect nothing less at the SHOT Show. But also heard reports that Remington is really trying hard to overcome their earlier mistakes on the newest Marlins.
    Never been a issue for me, as I didn't buy newer Marlins anyway. Even when they were made in Connecticut I still preferred the very old ones.
