I've long been a Remington fan but this is spot-on – that is one [email protected] company.


In my opinion (and possibly many here) that is because they’re not run by shooters / hunters anymore. Run by CEO types with MBAs in Idiocy.

Well moving to the Res could have the effect of lowering the prices of Remingtons.

When Glasgow AFB, Mt, which was the mainstay of the economy in Glasgow, shut down there was the usual scramble to try get small manufacturing companies move there to help supplement the area. Among those was a company who won a government contract to refurbish M-1 Carbines, of course one of the things that helped them get the contract was a promise to employ tribal members. It was not too long after the refurb operations started that you could purchase refurbed M-1 Carbines pretty cheaply at just about any bar or back-alley. I have no idea how many M-1's were done there but I'll bet that more went out the back-door than came through the front-door.

I don't think arming the Indians is a good idea; look what happened to Custer.

Why in the world would a firearms manufacturer have anything to with the east coast?


You don't know much about firearms history do you? Valsdad nailed this answer for you earlier. Geez!

Maybe now's the time to pick up that Model 7 HS Precision stock in .308 Win I've been eyeballing before it's too late.

Probably a good idea.

And, moving any firearms production out of New England nowadays might be a costly but good idea.

I wouldn’t want anything coming out of Remington for the last 10+ years.

I would imagine that some other firearms manufacturer would buy up the company just for the rights to the Walker trigger.

I loved the Remington 700’s and 11-87’s that I acquired new between the late 80’s and the middle to late 90’s.

They have good money. They bought a few bankrupt coal mines in Wyoming last year too. That cost millions, in the double digits just for the assets, the operation is very pricy.

I bought a new R1 1911 and a youth stocked 1187 in 20 gauge within the last year. Bought have been doing good duty so far.

I hate to hear any US gun company doing poorly.

Copying another company's product isn't innovation. Smart, but not innovative.

The idea is as old as metal and wood saw blades.

I would have thought the Indians preferred to buy Savage. Guess you have to take what's available.
