Remington was charging for a rollmark instead a rifle.
I guess I wasnít clear with my thought. I was referring to the draw to Anderson and PSA.

There have been a few comments about Remington. Keep in mind, Remington isn’t driving the bus. An investment conglomerate is at the wheel, they have tainted Remington, DPMS and the other companies they control.

I've heard they've relinquished control of Remington, but the damage is already done and they are still trying to crawl out of bankruptcy. The new owners have the displeasure of having to correct the mistakes made by Cerberus.

Agreed. I've also thought that about the 1911 market. It's easier to name companies that don't make 1911s than it is to name companies that do. With the everyday shooter going after the plastic 9MMs, you would think that building that many 1911s would also be a losing prop.

It went from one investment firm to another at least once and some other shuffling of corporations. Either way, as typical, the investment firms do what they can to extract value from the company rather than profit via actual production, so it's not a healthy investment overall.

In addition to bushmaster and dpms they also killed H&R. Handi rifles have a huge following and just as they were being shut down several mid west states started allowing straight wall calibers for deer hunting.
