When they were announced, given the QC issues Remington was having, I didn't think they'd really come out... and now that they have, I want one... but haven't seen any reviews one way or the other on fit and finish. Anyone buy or even just handle a brand new 444?

My little brother got one last Fall and it is very nice in my opinion. Put together very well and slicker feeding than my late Marlin made 444. It shoots excellent as well.

Did he order online? Or did he get to inspect in a store? (I could always refuse transfer at the FFL, but that's a pain in the butt.) I've been thinking at some point Remington would get it together...

I will second that opinion. I saw one at our local dealer and was impressed, so I bought it. EASY MOA with both Hornady and my hand loads.

Thank you. I'l have to find the target and post. It's really well put together. I needed a thumb extension (it was missing from the box) so I called Marlin (Rem) and I was ASTOUNDED at the friendliness and response from their customer service. They know they have to re-establish their reputation and they are making a concerted effort to rectify..

My brother just put XS Sights on his and we had no trouble holding inside 2” at 100 yards. It’s a serious hammer in the deer or elk woods.

It will hold a 1" with factory Hornady ammo all day long, too.

I recently bought two Remington Marlins. They are both excellent. I don't think my JM Marlins are any better than the Remington version, I bought them on-line.

444 is the Prince of elk cartridges in my opinion. Plenty of power and stellar accuracy out to approx 200 yards. The new Remington built Marlins are good ones again!
