ILION, N.Y. — Remington Arms will be staying in the Mohawk Valley for the foreseeable future. Two days after sources say Remington Officials met with three State Senators and three Assembly, U.S. Congressman Richard Hanna announced that the Pentagon would be awarding Remington an $80 million contract. In the meeting, sources say, Remington told the State lawmakers that they were moving forward with a $20 million upgrade to their plant that employs 1,200 people.

Boycott Remington and let them know about it. Long past time to draw some bright lines.

I didn’t know Remington was still making guns. Are they any good?

Maybe if you gave it to me. Otherwise, not a chance. I won’t be purchasing any firearms or ammunition from manufacturers that are tolerant of/complicit in the undermining of the second amendment.

Well damn. I recently bought a new 870 tactical and then put a ton of stuff on it.... I have about $1,400 into this project + cases of ammo. This timing sucks.

I intend to buy a second shotgun, it will not be a Remington.

The date on the story is March 8th.

Has anyone verified the story or verified whether this is still Remington's position?

They’ve only been making guns since 1816.

I always found that Remingtons worked well.

Plus their ammo WAS fine.

Maybe the market will help them to find the way.

I called this last week or so, based on the expansion plans, state grant and so on. All of which has been in the works since before this situation turned serious.

Maybe we can make 'em hurt enough to divest Marlin, at the very least.

guess one arms maker will arm the tyrants.

if they are also the same ones who make remington ammo, we may fare a lot better off, as most, if not all, their ammo sucks big time.

They do make some damn good shotgun slugs. Particularly the Copper Solids and Accutip sabots.

What a shame.

How crazy is it for a State to want to ban guns and then pay 80 million dollars to keep a gun manufacturer in their state.

We have some fudged up government in this United States.

Same here. Just contacted them to tell them so. You know the saying, about not speaking up until they come for you. That's just what's going to happen once the last few states which respect the 2A become targeted as pariah states.

Not crazy at all when they only want certain people to be armed, not the average law-abiding citizen. And then there’s always Mexico.

Just sent an email, informing them their products will no longer be needed by me.

I’m sure they won’t care. Just as I don’t care. Once I shoot up what UMC I have lying around, they will no longer be in my basket. And...looks like Mossberg was the good choice all along...

I guess they will also sell as much ammunition to the government as they can, too.

God, I remember my Dad had a Remington portable typewriter. Totally crappy. A space bar that would skip two to three spaces at times and keys that would constantly jammed. But he stubbornly held on to that typewriter for years until I finally got him to buy a Smith Corona portable(this was the mid-70’s).

Their electric razors sucked too.

Just told them my next truck gun will not be an 870 wingmaster as it has been in the past. No more ammo either.
