Very nice rifle, great price.

That's a whole lot of optimism.
Ruger's current quality, in my experience, is nowhere near what JM Marlins were. Lots of little issues that need aftermarket or a trip back to ruger to sort out, downright disapointing actually.

The old marlin in gone. The machinery and the people with the collective experience that made marlin marlin have been dispersed and aren't coming back.
There is nothing left but the name.
