It is obvious that the quality control has improved since the Remington transition period. I plan on smoothing the edges around the area when the Cartagena are loaded in. It tends to shave your brass a bit. Other than that, it's a great little workhorse. You can't beat it in this price range.

The gun is awesome. It looks like Remington and Marlin are starting to get their act together. Fit and finish were flawless. Buds Guns was phenomenal, prompt service speedy delivery.

Well like everyone else I too was concerned about ordering a Marlin sight unseen. I must say though I am happy with how things worked out. I thoroughly inspected the rifle inside and out when it arrived at my local ffl.The stock was in good condition overall. The lines are nice and uniform around the end cap and receiver. There were no scratches or blemishes on any of the metal parts. The front sight hood however was loose and lying on the bottom of the box. It is also mising the hammer spur that the manual says is included. The action cycled smoothly and it did not have any feed issues or other function issues. I have fired it around 30 times and the only issue I had was the stock forend loosing up. I retightened it and it hasn\'t loosened again. I wouldn\'t say marlin quality is back where it was before but I will say it is back to an acceptable level again. I would buy this gun again at this price.

Ok, first off I am 6.2 and 200lbs... the reason I went with the carbine was because it held six rounds yet empty weighed the same as the rifle. I was hoping the weight of the additional rounds in the tube, would help offset the recoil of the 4570 government. That said the carbine feels very small in my hands, but bringing it up to my shoulder reminds me of the reason I ordered a quick handling carbine . While in retrospect I think I would've preferred the rifle with it's hardwood stock over the carbine I truly cannot say that I am not very pleased with the gun I received . A quick handling, compact, power house, with stylish large lever ring and a generous shock absorbing shoulder pad, this rifle is about as fun as a horse kicked to the shoulder can be.. this rifle will be from hear on my 100 yard and under white tail/black bear gun....

I had a great experience, found the item at a good price, ordering was quick and easy, I used a preferred dealer and was notified when my rifle arrived, went to pick it up the paperwork was quick. The only problem I have is why have I not been using BudsGuns a lot longer. Went to the range did my break in on the rifle it is zeroed at 75yds. for using in woods hunting and it will one hole at 75 and 100yds. and at 150yds. there is very little paper between the holes. Sometimes a plan does come together. Load is 300gr. Hornady XTP over 53.4grs of H4198, used this load in previous Guide Gun it is a crusher in both ends.
