A few months back I purchased a new Marlin GBL from Buds..... & man was it a turd!!! Of course I didn't notice till I got her home and did my inspection :mad: Scratches, dings, dents, horrible machining, rust in the barrel, you name it.... A big steamy TURD!

Contacted Marlington CS & they were quite sympathetic and rushed me a shipping label. Fast forward 2 months and I receive a package from Marlington.... A brand new rifle!!! Not my worked over turd, brand new! The only paperwork with the rifle stated: "Replaced Gun - Gesture Of Good Will" God Bless Um! They might not be quick but they got my vote! & this new rifle is up to the old Marlin standard :)

Good to hear that they fixed it, but the original rifle should have never been shipped.

I'm hoping that Marlington's tales of woe are in the past, 'cause I really want one of these...

I would say buy in person or wait for the reviews to turn around.
