For no particular reason I thought I would mention something about this. I bought a marlin 1894c 357/38 lever action last year, and I noticed that I couldn't hit a thing with it. I fiddled with the sights, and I discovered that the barrel is misaligned. Not slightly off, but hard to fathom kind of off. I could show it to my mother, and she would probably ask what's wrong with it. For various reasons, I haven't sent it back for repair yet, but to me, its almost embarrassing that they would let one go like that. Now, I know all about lemons and random variance and such, but this is a different matter completely.
Now that I think about it, there is a reason I bring this up. The other day I was tooling around my LGS, and I saw the same thing on another Marlin! Only this time it was with a 22lr, the semi-auto 22lr they make. I can't imagine how they can be so far off in what they are doing. I guess I'm in an annoyed mood, and feel like venting.
