Add their disaster with the R51 and the ongoing train wreck of the class-action lawsuit over the Model 700's occasional "unintended go-bang" problem, and that the owners of the conglomerate that owned them were looking to sell the Remington business,
You're right.

I managed to track down one of those Remington double stack 9mm pistols. It's been an awesome shooter. I wonder why Remington spent the money on Para then did nothing with it?
