    Remington to File for Bankruptcy Article

    http://www.thefirearmblog.com/blog/2...ng-bankruptcy/


    Its a shame their quality control has gone down hill also. I was surprised to hear from a Gunsmith that the norm from him is that he cant get the scope base screws out on a new Remington. Majority of the time he has to drill them out and re thread them.

    Wow that’s a bad deal. They seemed to have started their downfall with the bad trigger, safety issues years ago. My hunting partner almost shot himself when he took the safety off and the gun fired. Bad deal.

    I agree....I noticed things staring to go downhill when they started producing the lower end rifle/scope packages. I think SPS series maybe.

    It is unfortunate, but IMO the Remington name will not disappear if they don't get financing. Someone will buy their name (& rights to produce) and Remington will still be sold. Winchester was sold several times and is still being sold with no connection to the original Winchester.

    With respect to the trigger situation, it has been known about and under recall for many, many years. Unfortunately there are lots of 700s still out there that have not been fixed!

    No big loss to me if they go off the map. I've owned three of their guns. Sold them all within 6 months of owning them.

    Dont know why I went back for a round three...lol

    I just bought a 700 last week!! But it was made in 1985 (gunbroker). We dealt Remington when I worked in a gun shop from 1999-2008 and the quality absolutely went in the crapper. Fit and finish, mechanical issues, all of it. The economy type projects like the 710 and 770 are jokes and garbage rifles (I’m sure a few work). I have an 870 from the early 90s and it is a tank, but the 870s and wingmasters from recent times are no where near what they once were. 1100s and 11-87s were decent autos for their time but Remington didn’t keep up as others made better autos like the browning gold/win sx2, Benelli SBE, beretta extrema, etc. They floundered around trying to make the 11-87 supermag, then the 105cti. It was frustrating.

    I own several Remingtons; 870 with 3 barrels, two 700s, two 121s, and an old 74. I like all of them but none are newer than the mid 1990s.

    Right now, accessories for 870s and 700s are some of the most widely available. Will it continue if they go full belly up (which I doubt it will)?

    I like how every article I read about it, blames it on gun sales lagging because Trump is president.
    My mind is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives.
