Their quality was gone before Cerebrus purchased them. With the unions pushing them into the red they couldn't compete. Their costs had to be driven lower to even keep the doors open let alone be...

Then what was the point of including it in the OP's post? If other than the fact he thinks it may have affected his work. Otherwise it is irrelevant info. As an aside if you need a beer before you...

Fine, it's a newer trigger. What is your point? Are they inherently weaker than the old ones or what?

You are saying Remington produces a trigger that won't stand up to 3 or 4 rounds at most, or just that specific trigger? I agree their quality has been going down but it was long before they were...

Let me see if I have this straight. You buy a rifle and take it home, get drunk and proceed to work on a trigger that the factory recommends you don't touch. It breaks and you demand they fix it. ...

Let me regurgitate your statement. "Do not" and "may not" are different. 'Do not' is definitive. 'May not' expresses a possibility. Given your past statements you tend to parrot "traditional...

There is a common misconception that Marlin's Microgroove barrels do not shoot cast bullets well. Microgroove rifling has more lands and grooves than normal rifling, the lands are not as wide or as...

You rifle is more than likely a Stevens Crackshot or a Favorite. Navy Arms occasionally does a run of 32 rimfire. Check their site or OWS since they now own it. Also check out Dixie Gun Works. ...

Everyone I've known that has one never had an ounce of trouble with the 788. My brother has one in 6mm Remington for over 40 years, not an issue.

I don't have any of my data handy but I'll concur with using the 250's versus the 225's. They do much better in my 700 than the 225's. This is using IMR4895 PD. One exception I've found to the...
