    Default Remington is out of the Black rifle market and back to making only good gun's.

    I saw this on another site I frequent.

    Is Remington Leaving the MSR Market? DPMS, Bushmaster and TAPCO Sites are Shuttered

    https://www.thetruthaboutguns.com/is...are-shuttered/

    Remington Outdoor Company informed RSR at the SHOT Show that they will be focusing on their core hunting and shooting brands AAC, Barnes, Marlin and Remington. Bushmaster, DPMS, StormLake Barrels and Tapco will no longer be produced, with the exception of the Bushmaster BA50.
    I am sure the advertising lawsuit that is against them for the Sandy Hook shooting helped them to make this decision even they did not manufacture the Bushmaster used in that killing since they did not own them yet.

    the antigun group will claim victory over this. but the issue is there are just so many AR manufacturers.

    Remington did file chapter 11 in either 2018 or early 2019 so financial issues were already preset within the company.

    Strange time to exit the businesses. I'd anticipate a rush to buy during the obviously pending laws. Shows what I know. Suppose Bloomterd made them an offer they couldn't refuse?

    I'm guessing the market is saturated, there are too many competitors, the economy is so good people are buying higher end stuff, or building their own.

    As mentioned by someone in the "Deals" thread - that explains why CDNN Sports has so many DPMS, Bushmaster, and Remington AR15s and mixes of those for complete uppers right now - they must have bought up all the inventory.

    Tactically the only firearm remington ever made that I like was the remington 870 shotgun. I recall they were always nervous about selling the police models to the public. At one time they about had the monopoly on shotguns for police patrol. , that is until police adopted the AR 15 carbines for patrol use.

    Odd a company that wants to focus on hunting rifles is abandoning what is fat becoming the most popular hunting platform on the market.

    The AR market is very competitive. I suspect its strictly a business decision.

    Remington and Marlin have a good reputation in the hunting firearm market.
    They call me "Simple Jack".

    If a judge agrees victims can sue manufactures when their products are misused by the public, then he must agree any injuries etc. caused by vehicles.
