    I've been looking for a used JM stamped 1895 for a year. Couldn't find one in decent condition and started looking at new remlins. Everyone had the same fitment issues, hard to cycle, loose hardware and so on. I was wanting a GBL but ran across a new 22' 1895 and was surprised how the stock lined up perfectly, cycled easy with one finger, everything looked and felt great. So I bought it, cleaned and inspected it. Shot 60 rounds today and sighted a Nikon prostaff at 175 yards. Shot perfectly! No issues or concerns arose. I have a few JM stamped 30-30's for the past 15 years and couldnt tell a difference between them and the remlin. Very happy. Here's just a quick pic I took after I bought it.

    Welcome to the forum...I think the rifle you bought was a good choice. They are nicely balanced and comfortable to shoot. Good pick.

    @tCan....a Remlin is a Marlin rifle that was made by Remington after they bought Marlin out in 2008.

    Nice setup Thamac15. One shouldn't assume all the new rifles are plagued with issues but more are than is good for their reputation. Obviously a good one can be found as you have witnessed.

    The shorter rifles are fine in my opinion until the hole in the barrel gets big. I prefer my 45-70 with the 26" barrel over the guide gun my wife had for a while. I think you will find the 22" barrel is a good length as it has been produced longer than any other length in modern production history of the 1895. It must be making a significant number of shooters happy.
