Anybody bought a new Marlin 336 in the last few months? Lot's of chatter about the quality going to hell after the Remington buyout. I looked at a 336W at Dicks the other day and the fit and finish of the wood and metal didn't look to bad to me. I guess they have been making improvements. The action did seem stiff, but not rough. Of course I wasn't able to cycle rounds through it.
Any personal experience with a recent purchase out there?
