Marlin was indeed bought out by Freedom group in 2007 and they were moved from North Haven to Remington's plant in Kentucky in 2010. If a Marlin has "JM" stamped on the right side of the barrel, its a pre-Remington model made at the old North Haven plant. 2010 and newer models will have "REP" stamped on the right side of the barrel, indicating they were produced at Remington's KY plant. The quality control of the newer "Remlins" is spotty at best but you could still luck up and get a good one. I'd stick to the "JM" guns myself
