Default Remlins - What Year did the Quality Come Back?

Hi All,
For a few years there, there were a lot of quality gripes about Remlin lever guns.

General opinion seems to be that the quality has comeback, at least somewhat.

Any idea about what year or date they got decent again?

Or stated the other way, what years have problems?

I bought an 1895 .45-70 in 2016 and have had no issues whatsoever.

Which version? I picked up one of the stainless Guide Guns with the straight grip, small loop, and the short magazine in late 2013. Seems like it's made correctly.

I really wanted the 10-11 shot cowboy version, but there weren't any to be found after Newtown for a year or two there.

Definitely have the 1895CB in .45-70 on my "someday list".

Would like to check out a vintage Win 1886 at some point as well.

Yesterday I was at Scheels in Coralville and looked at a brand new 1895 CB. It was the first good one that I have seen since the JM days and I look at them everyplace I go. When Remington first started to build them the octagon barrels almost look round. This one had nice sharp edges on the barrel like an old 1800"s winny. The rest of the outside was perfect but I don't like the stock finish they are using. I need to see more like this one before I can say the quality has returned for sure. I'm just happy to have a JM 1895 CB.

The standard 22in barrel wood stock.
