Remington used to be the working mans rifles.
A howa is a better rifle for less money.
I never said Remingtons can't shoot good. Mine will out shoot either one of you guys guns. Then again my AR will out shoot your remingtons any day of the week as well....
Well said. Remington is not what it was 10 years ago. If you're in the market for "plastic" framed ARs (chambered in fancy new cartridges), expensive semi-
tack drivers or (in my case) GREAT
shooting glasses! Then Remington is for you.
If you want a decent 200 yard-ish rifle for a decent price, shop around.
I made the mistake of not doing this and ended up with a new SPS. . . and while it may look good in the photos (so does mine
) and shoot decently. It is STILL
(a good %) a piece of cast metal, Chinese bull**** that Remington will NOT
stand behind. . .
When I call CS about the excessive rusting, they made damn sure to comment "That's YOUR
rifle, sir". Making sure their mediocre POS has been sold for an outrageous $$$
and I will have to do the same to be rid of it.
