Remington takes the money from NY/Pentagon deal
 
Remington would rather have private 2A ownership ES & Die than pass up the coin;

I wouldn't buy anything that had Remmy's name on it, let alone the cure for cancer from them.

maybe this one?

I wonder where my beloved federal hydrashock ammo is made, 'cause I won't be buying much Remington ammo. Pure federal payoff; they won't need civilian sales with that fat federali contract.

Thanks Orange.

What does that mean, precisely? That they'll stay in the New York area or that they sold out the public in lieu of their main benefactor, the pentagon? :confused:

Well that is a bummer. I like my 870, it has been a good hunting companion for years. Maybe they will change their minds? One can hope, I like their products, but I don't want to give money to a company who takes a dollar over the rights of the people.

Wish I hadn't bought that 700 last month now... Oh well, it'll be the last Remington product I buy...

Anybody have a suggestion for an alternative to Rem-oil?

I use hopes elite found at Wally world. Hopes makes some good stuff. Trade in that 700 on a ruger American ;)

And Springfield Armory is still in Ill.
S&W has not moved from Mass.

I am as much of a 2 A activist as the next guy but we got to use some judgement too:

-Should remington have refused a contract of sniper rifles to our military? These can be made anywhere, I am sure they were pursuing it for a while
- Yes NY lobbied them to stay and I agree they should not have. But staying in an unfree state is not the same as moving there.

I would have preferred they use the assured income of the sniper rifle contract to move out of state.

And their XD line is made in Croatia? Doesn't that make them a sellout too?
