Finally, after 18 months on order, I got my rifle today. Cleaned her up and took her for a spin. The standard rear sight had to be jacked to the highest setting to hit point of aim at 25yds with Federal ammo. Luckily, all of my loads print to the same point. Group wise offhand was about 1"-1.5". General comment s are that Marlin fit and finish are on the rough side. Feeding was alittle rough as the chamber end had a sharp edge that would catch unless I worked the action tilting the reciever to the left side. Polished it up later and need to check how it does now. The large bare area of the frame sides is a bit bland. Other than that I guess I'll keep it for a while.
