    Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey is investigating possible safety problems with guns manufactured by at least two companies. The Boston Globe reports that Remington Arms Co. and Glock Inc. have filed lawsuits to fight Healey’s efforts. […] Healey says Glock firearms are “prone to accidental discharge” and says in court papers she is concerned the company may have been warned about the problem and failed to act. …

    Magpul Industries has long been known for manufacturing superior rifle (and now pistol) magazines, as well as improved stocks for ARs. The company is now expanding into more traditional rifle stocks and is taking them to new levels. I was recently sent a Magpul “Hunter” stock for the Remington 700 series rifles to test. Now, admittedly, I’m not much of a hunter. I choose to spend my shooting time a bit more tactically, but with that said, I really do like this stock. The version I received was in basic black, but other available colors include flat dark earth, stealth...

    HELENA - A new plan, complete with targeted digital and radio advertising, has been proposed to notify millions of Remington rifle owners about how to fix their weapon’s trigger mechanism. The plan filed in federal court late last week in Kansas City, Missouri, is part of an ongoing lawsuit claiming trigger mechanisms are defective in several Remington rifle models, sometimes causing the rifle to fire without the trigger being pulled. The plan also has a high-profile author: Signal Interactive Media, the firm co-founded by Jim Messina, who managed President Barack Obama’s 2012 re-election campaign and was a top aide to...

Cerberus sent a letter to its investors, which include pension funds and endowments, telling them that it has separated Remington Outdoor Co., the maker of Remington and Bushmaster rifles formerly known as Freedom Group Inc., from its funds and will allow any investor wishing to cash out of the company to do so, according to a person familiar...

    HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - Gun maker Remington has moved a lawsuit by families of those shot in the Sandy Hook school massacre from state to federal court, where at least one expert says it has less chance of succeeding. Nine families sued Remington and others in Bridgeport Superior Court in December arguing the Bushmaster AR-15 rifle used in the shooting should not have been sold for civilian use because of its overwhelming firepower. A 10th family joined the lawsuit adding a wrongful death claim....

Herkimer County Legislature Chairman Vincent Bono said he learned about the 105 layoffs through county Administrator James Wallace and then from Karin Zipko of Herkimer County Working Solutions. “We're gearing up our programs that are offered, including retraining and job searches,” said Bono, R-Schuyler, during a telephone interview Monday. “It's unclear whether some will be called back.

    ALBANY — A year after the state enacted a tough new gun control law, Remington Arms said Friday it is moving two production lines from upstate to Alabama. Remington, which dates to 1816, said it will no longer produce its Bushmaster rifle and R1 pistol lines at its Ilion plant, which employs more than 1,000 workers. It’s unclear how many jobs will be lost in the move. But state Sen. James Seward (R—Milford) said passage of Gov. Cuomo’s SAFE Act last year didn’t help. “The fact that the lines being moved out are for products now more strictly regulated in...

    Question for FReeperdom members who have experience with the Remington 7XX series in .308. Bought a slightly used rifle, a 770. Had it inspected by the 'smith at the gun store, zero'd for 200 yds. Son took it shooting yesterday and intermittently when he opened the action the bolt would slide all the out the rear, requiring re-assembly insertion. He was shooting with an experienced 7XX friend who of course made him check the release lever, and they found no obvious fault. Any thoughts on what to check for or inspect prior to letting the 'smithy look at it for...

    This week brought two sharp reminders of what our country will increasingly look like should Democrats be given complete control of our lives. Here’s why we cannot give up the fight for our freedoms. Last month the Democrat Governor of New York State, Andrew Cuomo, told a public radio host he thought, “….extreme conservatives” who are “right-to-life, pro-assault-weapon, anti-gay,” have “no place in the state of New York.” Honesty like this, even on a public radio station few people actually listen to, is rare for any politician especially a Democrat. Given the size of his audience Cuomo was likely using...

"It can't be good," said Fran Madore, president of United Mine Workers Local 717, which represents 1,180 of the 1,300 Remington employees in Ilion. "How can it be good?"

    Reports that a mysterious company has been buying up U.S. gun manufacturers have been popping up on the internet for several months. When we first learned of the possibility that a single company was rapidly acquiring companies like Bushmaster, Remington, and Marlin Firearms we immediately suspected that something was amiss. Apparently, we were not alone, because others were thinking the same thing. One rumor that popped up was that global financier George Soros, historically an anti-gun advocate, was behind the moves, and that he was positioning the gun industry to reduce pro-gun lobbying efforts. This prompted the National Rifle Association...

    Scarborough, Maine -- [...] In recent years, many top-selling brands - including the 195-year-old Remington Arms, as well as Bushmaster Firearms and DPMS, leading makers of military-style semiautomatics - have quietly passed into the hands of a single private company. It is called the Freedom Group - and it is the most powerful and mysterious force in the U.S. commercial gun industry today. Never heard of it? You're not alone. Even within gun circles, the Freedom Group is something of an enigma. Its rise has been so swift that it has become the subject of wild speculation and grassy-knoll conspiracy...

    Recognizing the differences between conditions in Iraq and Afghanistan, the Army is now selecting a contractor to upgrade the 22-year-old Remington bolt-action rifle to become a more effective killing machine. The Army will pour about $5.6 million into upgrades to the M24, with the new gear expected to be delivered to troops by this fall. The M24's barrel is being modified to shoot heavier .300 Winchester Magnum rounds, instead of the 7.62mm NATO ammunition, which should extend the rifle's maximum effective range by hundreds of yards to a maximum of about 1400 yards. The suppressor will reduce the noise and...

    The U.S. Army has finally addressed years of complaints about the M-4 and M-16 assault rifles. The M-4 is a short barrel M-16, and has become very popular with the troops. The army has asked the Department of Defense for permission to spend a few hundred million dollars on upgrades for its 400,000 M-4 assault rifles. The big change is replacing the main portion of the rifle with a new component that contains a short stroke piston gas system (to reduce buildup of carbon inside the rifle) and a heavier (by five ounces) barrel (which reduces barrel failure from too...

Adding that in his "humble opinion…these things have no place in hunting" because "We don't need to be lumped into the group of people who terrorize the world with them, which is an obvious concern."

    MILWAUKEE, WI (AP) -- Kay Clark Miculek is a champion shot, especially with a handgun. Though she may be pretty deft with a shotgun, she's got to put some work into using that weapon. That's because this gun shop owner in Louisiana usually must get shotguns shortened to fit her 5-foot-3-inch frame. "Any shotgun I get, I have to get cut off. Not a lot of lady models are shorter," said Clark Miculek, 49, who owns Clark Guns, in Bossier City and runs camps throughout the country teaching women to shoot. But she knows that gun makers are now coming...

    Situation: Two particularly brutal and heavily armed criminals hit an upscale jewelry store--and meet a firestorm of armed citizen resistance. Lesson: Sound planning beats seasoned perpetrators. Sometimes, the more firepower you have, the better. The best cops in the world can't help you if they aren't right there, right now. December 2, 1994. William "Pappy" Head, 71, and Thomas Jefferson Salter, 56, are what today's young predators would call "OGs"--"Old Gangsters." Pappy is a known hit man, on parole after serving only a year of a five year sentence for conspiracy to commit murder, and both have a long history...

    Remington says that the bill protects industry from criminal acts by those using its products U.S. Senate passage of a bill that shields gun-makers from certain lawsuits is viewed as a boost for the industry, including Remington Arms Co.

Millner said that the law would provide a legal shield for Remington and other gun-makers for the...

    It is a well-known fact that terrorists killing our troops in Iraq are not afraid of the M4 and its 5.56mm bullet -- but they are terrified of shotguns. Enter the AA-12. No felt recoil, high explosive rounds, gas-forged and heat-treated, this shotgun may give terrorists a run for their money.   Destructive device: The AA-12 and AA-12 CQB could very well have a dramatic effect on the Global War On Terrorism. Throughout the history of firearms, those firing multiple projectiles have always proven enormously effective at close-to-medium ranges out to 50 yards and beyond. This was especially true...

    Here's the deal. I've decided to upgrade the family shotgun. Currently I have an old Remington Model 11 which is actually a duck gun. I've got a number of potent handguns. What I would like to do, is get a shotgun that can be used for home defense and also take to a 3 gun match. It seems most people are using the automatic Benellis, etc for 3 gun, but at 700+, they are out of my budget range. The gun show is this weekend, I've got a budget of about $500, what would you buy? Right now, I'm leaning...
