Time for S & W to move out of the Peoples Republic of Mass.
Yes, they should move to Texas.
I own two S&W M&P 15 rifles. They are excellent firearms. More importantly, S&W has great customer service. They pay for shipping and repair your firearm for free, should you have a problem with it. I had a bolt problem with my first rifle. They sent my a fedex shipping label. After 14 days, I got it back with a new bolt and a new barrel (a problem I did not even know about). That rifle has been perfect ever since. My second rifle has 500 rounds through it and it shoots like a dream. S&W has learned from its mistakes in the past, and under new ownership, it is 100% pro second amendment. Good business or them. A move to Texas or some other gun rights state, will be even better business for them.
Springfield has a habit of letting great companies go broke, no support, and let them go onto the dust heap of history.
Duryea Autos, Indian Motorcycles, and Gee Bee Aircraft....
Could S & W be next? Perhaps....
No, no, no! Three generations of my family have worked there. It’s the only thing left in Springfield.
