    Gotta admit I was excited when I read the title, but after looking at their MERC415 I really don't see anything that 75 other companies don't already offer.:( I was hoping for subtle connections to the old Enfields. Oh well.

    Be that as it may, I'm glad to see they are being built in the US of A.

    meh

    no such rifle company existed historically. there wasnt an "enfield" armory making the lee-enfield rifles.

    kinda like the current rendition of springfield armory. no relation at all to the historic US springfield armory depot.

    if they prove to be good that will be awesome more the merrier but banking on just the name to sell em... good luck. better make good stuff or it will fail
