Remington comes on Board with Blockbuster ad!
24 August, 2012 | marktwain

Posted on 08/24/2012 12:52:28 PM PDT by marktwain

Remington has figured out that there will be no room for them in an America with Barrack Obama as president. When I first saw this advertisement, I thought it was a spoof. Then my Brother called and said he saw it in the American Rifleman, the flagship publication of the NRA.

Full page ads are not cheap, and you can bet that Remington management did some deep thinking before they ran this ad.

I say, welcome home boys! Let us see Ruger, Smith & Wesson, and, yes KelTec step up to the plate. There are a host of other American manufacturers that could look to Taurus as an example!

Your companies will never be acceptable to the left. Stop feeding the mouth that bites you. Come on in, the water is fine.

I have not bought a new Remington for years...

I may have to rethink that decision. They make some very nice guns.

I will post the only image of the ad that I have found on the net. I know there are some very talented freepers out there. I would love to see this ad in full page format in the comments. I have a hard time believing that Remington would object to us publishing their ad on freerepublic.

I just took my new Remington 1911 R1 to the range yesterday and ran a hundred rounds though it... Respectable performance.

I saw that ad earlier this week in the NRA mag.
Very cool.

That ad appears on Page 13 of the September, 2012 American Rifleman.

It does not have the words "Attention Politicians"

Thanks for the information. It may not need the line.. Let us see Ruger do a one-up and include the Attention Politicians line. Without old Bill to squash them, the management might have the cojones to do it.

They should do it. I have seen some real innovation by Ruger. I have disposable income. I have been thinking about a new .270 stainless.

The government knows this, which might be why they bought all that ammmo recently.

Civil War 2 a.k.a. rebellion will invite invasion from China/Russia/etc. so it’s a bad idea.

I’d like Remington a lot more if they made enough 7615 Police Rifles so that one of them could get to a gun store near me!

The meaning was still plain enough. Pretty ballsy advert by Freedom Group / Cerberus.

Even if we have a civil war, China or Russia neither one would be stupid enough to invade. The decision to throw every nuclear weapon we have at them would be lots easier if there were trouble on the home front. Also, whose”side” would they claim to be on? Their economies would be collapsing too. Kinda reminds me of K Mart merging with Sears....

Googled images for "New Remington Ad" and came up with this:

It is ... I think that's the first ad I have seen EVER that really addresses the 2nd Amendment.

Thank you for posting it.

Let us see Ruger step up to the plate. Come on Ruger. You know it is the right thing to do.

Do not be a tail end Charlie. Get your ad out before Smith & Wesson does.

They are still smarting over the Clinton debacle. They ended up with new ownership.

Maybe you could put in some wording about “What can a handgun do against an Army?” With a creative picture of a gal with an Ruger LCP stopping a rape by a guy with a blue helmet nearby.

SOP in regimes such as in Venezuela with Chavez. It is the direction this administration seems to want to emulate.

Yep... suffice to say that the big "sporting arms" manufacturers have avoided any such "controversy" in the past. There were too many Fudds/Tweeds/Plaids/whatever out there that they apparently feared offending. Perhaps Remington senses that just maybe, that tide has finally turned.

Or maybe they understand that this election really is for all the chips, in terms of gun ownership. Whatever motivated this, good for Big Green.

1) You’re right. They can nuke us from their subs.
2) Who says in the middle of a Civil War, we could even issue the order to nuke them back.
3) They’ll find new markets. Also, the price of oil would collapse after we get nuked, spurring worldwide economic growth.

Check it out. A Russian sub with nuclear missiles was in the Gulf of Mexico.

They’d nuke, THEN invade.

There was a rumble at this year's SHOT show to the effect that Remmy may be bringing back the Nylon 66 semiauto .22 rifle. I've heard the name *Nylon 6600* floated for the new models, maybe with a *Remington Green* stock. We shall see.

I never understood why they stopped making the Nylon 66. By all accounts it was a very popular rifle.

It was not known as a tack driver, but had reasonable accuracy.

It was known to be very, very reliable.

I would love to see them come out with a new, improved version!

The new version should have a threaded barrel and come with a thread protector for accessories.

Remington Sells Out To NY For $80 Million “Sniper” Rifles Government Contract
Apr 13, 2013

remington

Back in February, several gun manufacturers decided to boycott law enforcement in states that are hostile to the Second Amendment, states like New York for instance. They would not be providing weapons or ammunition. Within a week that number had grown by over 700%. In the first article I provided information for several gun manufacturers that could be contacted to come on board with this boycott, including Glock, Sig Sauer, Smith & Wesson and Remington. Well, now we know where Remington stands. They stand on the side of government as they have let it be known that they will be staying in New York and they have now acquired a government contract worth $80 million.

Remington informed New York state lawmakers that they were planning to spend $20 million to upgrade their manufacturing facility in Mohawk Valley. The word was that they were considering moving if New York implemented stricter gun control laws as they have in the NY SAFE Act. Remington had been approached by several states to move.

Lawmakers spoke with Remington about their expansion. The company has received $5.5 million in state incentives over the past five years.
