Marlin rifles have always been a favorite of mine. It was depressing when their quality took such a drastic nose dive.
I’m happy to say that the quality is back. Not only that, but their service department seems to going the extra mile.
We had a customer who’s rifle was damaged in an auto accident. To include ejection from vehicle into river. Lots of damage and broken forend. Marlin fixed everything, good as new, and didn’t charge a dime. That was above and beyond and impressed the hell out of me.
So Marlin gets full marks in their Centerfire Lever Actions again.
The Rimfires… Not so much. In the last two days, we’ve replaced two firing pins in 39As. Both guns suffering misfires. One came back from repair for that reason, and Marlin didn’t fix it… so we did. Problem solved.
Come on Marlin!
