    I hear when marlin was bought out the stopped using the jm stamp on the barrel and the sights being off was one result off the drop in quality. My sight are off plus I have the jm stamp. The f*ck is up wit that

    Probably a barrel blank that was left in inventory when Remington took over Marlin. Most likely the Remington employees got the sights misaligned when they did the remaining work to install the sights. Just my guess.

    Without knowing the date of manufacture it's difficult to tell what you have.

    Or it was built for the metro market. Some city folks like the sights on the side of the gun rather than on the top. :D

    Seriously, hyphenated hit the nail on the head. The old Marlin wasn't perfect either but the current manufacturing group has had an inordinate amount of problems since the move to Ilion.

    I like Rooster's answer better than mine. I'm gonna start holding my Marlins sideways when I'm deer hunting. :cool:
