Thanks for the heads up. I have a buddy who's been looking for one of these for several years...just sent this to him. I own an older one, and it's probably my favorite rifle that I own.

I sincerely hope they are able to produce better examples than the .44 mags they were cranking out in the early days in Ilion. Remarlington really needs to consider making the .357 with a 16” barrel. Then I might consider one.

Wow a factory threaded barrel 1894! I read the OP about Bud's having a quantity in .357, and was thinking about getting one and having the barrel threaded for a silencer.

A suppressed lever action .38 Special carbine just begs for night vision optics. Cool

Agreed except I want one that’s blued and with the non painted furniture - surprised none of the big makers have done this. Just need to add a 3 lug and it will work perfect for 357.

I have a 2017 made 44 mag and the fit and finish are excellent. I think they have it figured out.

I had one a few years ago. The trigger was very sloppy when cocked, flopping all around. The action locked up and I took it to a dealer to ship back to Marlin. He decided he wanted to buy it, so I got out from under it.

I did pick up a Henry BB All Weather in .357 and I think fit/finish and smoothness of action was well worth the addition 200 bucks over the Remlin. I'll be picking up a matching piece in 45-70.

About 3 weeks ago, I handled a NIB Marlin version I was unaware they were making. It was a blued .357 with 16" barrel. Looked good, other than the polishing on the receiver was almost a finely ground finish, rather than polished. I couldn't find that version on the Buds, or Marlin's online catalog, when I tried to look it up later. Maybe either a new model or limited run?

I sure hope Remlin has improved these or you will be in for some disappointing problems. Remlin CS is non existent. I won’t go into my experience with them here. I bought mine new in 2012 and the action is rough. I have a JM stamped Marlin 1894 in .45 Colt and it is butter smooth. Makes the Remlin feel like junk.

When Remington bought Marlin the tooling was either worn out or non-exesitent. As a result, a lot of those rifles were being built hands on by barious people with various results. New rifles are being built on all new equipment in NY. Much better. Look for some fresh calibers this next year. The .444 Marlin I believe may be one of them. IMO, I think you are good to go to purchase a newly manufacture Marlin.

You’d think so, but it’s not the case. They still turn out their fare share of problems guns despite att the fancy new CNC machines. I would not buy any Remlin that I could not thoroughly inspect, including cycling dummy rounds.

I picked up the rifle today from my FFL and in fact, shot it in his back yard. Fit and finish looks beautiful. I don't see any blems in the wood or steel. I feel like I got a particularly nice one as the wood grain is very attractive.

Shot 357 mags through it. Grouped decent, but I was shooting off hand and didn't expect perfection at this point. Rounds chambered easily and casings ejected perfectly. The action is far from smooth as butter, but I expect that'll ease up with use.

Overall, I'm very pleased with this purchase. Maybe I'm one of the lucky ones and if so, I'm glad. This is a rifle I've wanted for a long time.

I want one chambered in 45lc with threaded barrel. Though 357/38 would be nice also.

Really need them to rerelease the .41mag version. Henry is the only making a .41 at the moment and their loading system sucks.
