So after my 10 day wait I finally get to pick up my new Marlin 336BL I purchased from Turners. After a hour wait (they were busy) it was finally my turn. The employee brought out my Marlin 336BL and all looked well. The seriel # matched the paper work and everything was fine until while I was inspecting the barrell I noticed it said the rifle was chambered in 45/70 :confused: I thought to myself this isn't what I purchased WTH? My next thought was should I stay quite and not say anything considering the 45/70 is about a $100 more then the 30-30 WIN but then my Army Values kicked in as well as seeing that a box of 45/70 was $40 so I brought it to the employees attention. We were both blown away because the box label, serial #, & paper work all said this rifle was a 30-30 WIN. The employee told me that this had happen once before (didn't say which company) and that apparently their had to be some kind of mix up at the Marlin factory. The employee swiftly took care of the problem and swapped the 45/70 with a 336BL they had on hand and also threw in a $20 gift certificate. So in the end I feel like I made the right decision and now I have a $20 gift card to buy ammo with.
