I have been hanging out at the Marlin Owners Board over the past few months and it is a great group and really well informed.
Since I am wading into the Marlin collecting waters, and recently purchased a Rem-lin 45-70 in stainless vs a JM marked gun built in 2008, I see substantial differences. I took the lever out of the Rem-lin and one side is only partially finished that is inside the gun. I assume this is a "doesn't matter" area. The wood is not nearly as nice, and the metal finished edges are not as eased as the other guns. It shoots well, the Rem-Lin has a 6.5 lb trigger, the Marlin a 5 lb trigger.
I would prefer a JM marked gun based on this experience.

Cool! When you use CLR, do you have to republish the metal? In other words, if you are just removing the old blue from polished steel, does it dull the finish?
