    That would be nice if Ruger started making nice Marlins!

    Agreed. Remington never has figured it out!

    One of the best engineers I knew at Marlin was let go when Freedom Group moved it out of Connecticut. He went to work for Ruger and the last time I saw him was at the SHOT Show in 2011.

    Hope he is still with Ruger and they revive the Marlin reputation.

    Came back to add I hope for quackmaster and everyone else at the ammo facility this goes through and is great for them all. I still miss the work and people there and I’ve been gone nine years.

    Sounds like Sig has dibs if the Vista bid falls thru on the ammo division.... either one would probably be decent to work for.

    I would be happy with a Ruger Marlin. One thing is for sure- they couldn’t do much worse than Remington has done.

    The guy you know is still at Ruger. I’m sure he played a part in this.

    I’m all good.

    I could see Ruger turning out some combo single actions and lever guns if it all works out.

    Hope JJE Capital starts making H&R again. Best slug gun for the money. Wish I had another one.

    Didn't Remington also own the H&R/New England lines?


    Edit. Finally read and saw where they did.

    I’ll just be watching for VSTO to setup for a swing trade.

    a Ruglin just dont have a very nice ring to it.

    i fear the ol h and r slug gun is gone. i had one but sold it when they allowed the 45-70 for deer. more than one shot gun state went that route. kinda wish i had the ol rascal back =it was a killer fer sure.

    Hunter Biden - like financial decisions, and deep rooted geographic racism.... that could be one reason for their problems..... NOT.
    But to a NY Times reporter, I suppose that makes complete sense... he wouldn't consider that Remington totally failed to make a product that the shooting public wanted to buy.

    Maybe I missed this, but who gets the actual Remington guns? Does Remington keep their rifles and pistols?
