The Czech made Persian Model 98/29 Long Rifle is considered to be one of the best Military Mausers ever made. I just wish that I had the cash & opportunity to buy one!
I can not imagine the amount of work it took to put the Persian Stampings on each rifle. All I know is that somebody earned their pay that time!
That steel recoil plate would sure let you know that you fired one off with it.
There have been a series of long running law suits and poor management decisions concerning product changes and new product launches and the signs of that may be becoming apparent.
This class action lawsuit drug on for years. Remington began settling the bulk of the claims out of court last year without admitting any responsibility. This is estimated to have cost the company millions of dollars.
The 1100 shotgun was introduced in 1963. Over the years it has become an ultra-dependable design and had a very loyal following of hunters and shooters. It became the best-selling semi-auto shotgun in history with over four million sold.
Neither shotgun has lived up to the reputation of the 1100. The backlash from shooters/customers was immediate and harsh.
Remington got the Model 1100 back into its product lineup, but along the way, the company had been sold to a private equity firm, Cerberus Capital Management.
The classic make it cheaper logic was the order of the day and the 1100 is not the same shotgun it was.
It was supposed to be a re-introduction of their classic pistol made from 1918 to 1927.
The new model 51 was rushed to market and failed. There were so many problems that Remington stopped production and recalled all the pistols that had been produced.
A re-engineered version has just been released, but consumers are…pardon the pun…gun shy
A furlough is typically a move a company makes that requires workers to take time off without pay, most likely in an effort to save money during a time of low sales.
Remington, which marked its 200th anniversary in 2016, seems to moving in the wrong direction!
These cuts/actions are not companywide and they should only affect workers at the Ilion location where they produce 700 series rifles, 870, and Versa Max shotguns.
