The lesson is always lost on the MBA's: You can always make something cheaper and drive your customers to your competitors.

Remington's foray into pistol production was a real waste of money and effort. Why would a company with little pistol experience try to produce a first gun with an unusual action? Then they did not test them completely before going to market. The first ones would not even feed ball ammo. Cute little pistol, great paperweight. The whole thing cost $$$ better spent on their rifles and the reputation cost was huge.

Smith and Wesson came back after the Bangor Punta disaster. Remington might manage it if they get a person in charge who cares about guns and has some business sense.

The lawsuits over the Walker trigger were the first nail in the coffin and the current management have been slow learners

It is sad that the greed of Cerberus Capital and the Freedom Group have done to a company that's furnished us all with some very fine weapons. With the debacle of the R-51 pistol mentioned above (Yes,I bought one) and taking on Marlin they have managed to ruin the reputation of two companies that folks like us have depended on for generations. Gp

Did they not have a single shooter in management? Some of their rifles still shoot but it is a complete crap shoot nd not worth the risk.

Jim;  A friend of mine in Whitefish Mt. told me of a local gun shop (This is secondhand information) that packed up everything Remington in his inventory and sent it back to his supplier explaining that he could no longer, in good faith sell Remington products to a client base he'd spent years to develop.  Gp

The sole purpose of these corporate conglomerates is to make money for themselves and the stockholders. Reputation, quality and customer acceptance / satisfaction be damned. Get the product out the door. Any defects can be addressed later. 

It seems to this uneducated mind that those high paid bell hop bean counters don't understand that maintaining those things is everything. And at least this pilgrim is willing to pay a fair price for quality even though it may cost a little more.
