When I first bought my .450, it would not feed correctly. I think it was just a part missing, but I took it back to the dealer and Marlin fixed me right up. Between my uncle and I we have 8 Marlin lever actions and plenty of rounds through all of them. Never had a jam, ever. They are my hunting rifle of choice. They have a gun for everything.
