Not really. It was never marketed as an American gun made by Americans. It's always been a Croatian gun, imported by springfield.

I've always found that interesting myself. Much like the Jack Daniels distillery.

Strange, I have 27 fire arms, (pistols/rifles) and not one of them is a Remington.
I buy and use a lot of their ammo, but thats it. Nothing wrong with Rem., I just always liked other guns better.

Sounds like Obama has bought off another Firearms company with tax payer money. Looks like Remington is happy to be sucking on the government tit for the next 10 years.

I plan no future purchases of Remington products as a result of this. Although it looks like some of my money will be going to Remington in the form of my tax dollars. I am not happy about this at all.....

Aren't Marlin and Remington connected? I thought they were. Sorry!

The Pentagon contract was not a gift for staying in NY. The Pentagon doesn't CARE where Remington makes their arms. These two items are not related, conspiracy fans. This was in the works for a long time before NY passed their stupid laws.

People getting pissed because Remington won't pull up and move? Why? Remington has had a factory in Ilion, NY since what, 1816? Generations of families have worked there. You don't just pull up and leave. The have been there longer than anyone is alive and if they want to weather the storm and not disrupt their company - I applaud that. Remington is also in the process of being sold as the Freedom Group is on the auction block. That's another reason they can't do anything drastic.

I have two 870s and a 700. If I want to buy another Remington I will without hesitation

OK, let's make this easy.

You are the CEO of Remington. You like your job and the neat stuff your salary and perks provide for your family and yourself.

Way up the food chain at Ceberus Capital Management the company has decided to sell off Freedom Group because a huge investor has threatened to take his money elsewhere after a rifle manufactured by Bushmaster was used to kill 26 kids and teachers in CT.


Quote:
Cerberus said it will seek to sell Freedom Group Inc. just hours after California Treasurer Bill Lockyer said he’ll propose that the state’s public pension funds, the two largest in the U.S., divest investments in firearm manufacturers that make guns prohibited under state law. The firm’s announcement followed a day in which the White House reiterated President Barack Obama’s support for a new ban on assault weapons and lawmakers called for stricter gun-control laws.

Cerberus made this statement:


Quote:
“This decision allows us to meet our obligations to the investors whose interests we are entrusted to protect without being drawn into the national debate” on gun control, Cerberus said in a statement issued just after midnight in New York.

Now, you, the CEO of Remington are going to jump on your sword and threaten to move the company out of CT: Yeah, right. Good luck finding another cushy job.
