I was a little worried about purchasing this rifle online due to all the talk of the quality of these rifles being poor. But I can say that this one that buds sent me is in perfect condition. Very happy with it.

It's not a Marlin thats fer sure. I bought mine about 2 years ago from Bud's, (waaaaaay cheaper than LGS BTW) But it does not cycle smoothly at all. I have to almost double clutch it, I would not trust this rifle with my life in Alaska which is what I bought it for- will carry my HK91 instead...I think I will have this thing chopped in half by tWild West Guns in Anchorage and made into a takedown and have them fix remington's shitty action work. At least my front sight sight is not canted!! Maybe Remington rehired the Marlin guys they laid off and now they're better? I dont know...

Remlin finally got their stuff together. Fit and finish are nice. Beautiful rifle overall. Lever cycles smooth. Smooth as a lever can I suppose, it takes some getting used to if you've never used one before. Had some issues with the FFL, took several days to sync our schedules, not really buds fault but it would be nice if they distinguished between actual gun stores and random dudes with FFLs. But the gun itself is flawless. Have yet to fire it, but I can't find any problems and believe me I have been looking for even the smallest due to the price tag. Be warned .45-70 rounds are not cheap, the cheapest start at $1.60 a round and go all the way up to $6 a round for grizzly bear loads. If you can afford it, and you need to hunt Woolly Mammoths, this is your gun.

Beautiful rifle. Action was a little stiff. This was because it was dry as a bone from the factory. I disassembled it and properly lubricate the moving parts… Problem solved. There were also sharp edges on the inner perimeter of the loading port that shaved the brass case and my finger as well. This should have been beveled better at the factory, however, I was able to smooth it out with a small file and minimal effort. Now the action and loading are close to perfect. Shoots accurately as one would expect. Sights are easy to adjust for windage and quickly acquire the target. Marlin/Remington could (and should) do a better job taking off the rough edges at the factory, but I like the look and feel of this rifle so much, I will go ahead and give it 5 stars.
