Nice guns Dontshoot.  I have decided my next rifle will be the RPR in .308, but will have to wait until I leave Illinois in two years to acquire one.  Too much of a pain in the butt up here.

Remington filed for bankruptcy.  

Remington has been making shit products for years.  Hard to pay off $1B in debt when nobody wants to buy your crap.

That’s a tad untrue. They make some pretty decent hunting rifles.

And there's nothing wrong with their 1911s & RM380s. Decent pistols for the valu.

As previously mentioned, my favorite YouTube channel (or one of my three favorite)

Forgotten Weapons https://www.youtube.com/user/ForgottenWeapons/videos

This was from a week ago, and is cool as shit:

Quote

 

This particular four-barrel shotgun is in 20 gauge, and exhibits a unique trigger mechanism derived from the pistols. It has two triggers, with the bottom one acting as a cocking lever and the top as a firing trigger. This allows the shooter to either cock the gun and then make a careful shot with the light upper trigger, or to pull all the way through with the upper trigger, much like a double action revolver. The reason for the system was that the firing mechanism had four firing pins but only one striker, which rotated to fire each barrel in sequence. The “cocking” action of the trigger was in fact the process of retracting the striker and rotating it to the next barrel.

Remington was too slow to capitalize on the growing AR market.  Their 1911 flopped.  No other pistol options to fall back on.  Their shotguns are uninspiring and far down the pecking order.  I only buy Core-Locks when there are no other ammo options.  Their rifles are fine.  They are "ok".  They rested on their laurels for way too long on their vulnerable 700 action.  Problem is, the market passed them by.  On the low end, If I"m entering the market, I'm thinking Savage (probably Axis), Mossberg, or the new Ruger Ranch/Predator lines (which I"m probably going to be getting for the boy - Ranch in 762x39).  Start ratcheting up the price, then I'm looking at Howa, CZ, or Tikka first.  Get into four figures, then it's Weatherby, Sako (A7), Browning Hell's Canyon, or the new Bergara 14R in 6.5C.  Then throw in Kimber and the multitude of custom and semi-custom options.  Layer on the chassis-rifles systems and long-range AR's.  Not a good time to be leveraged in debt.

That's a pretty good summation of Remington's market position right there.  As stated, Cerberus' timing sucked and yet they still levered it to the hilt to extract their pound of flesh.

The Remington 1100 was an iconic shotgun, favored by hunters and skeet shooters back in the day, but the quality is shit now. Many better options as you say. Too bad...

These guys built it: https://accurateordnance.com

I highly recommend them.

The barrel is a Bartlein.  I routinely get 1/4 MOA accuracy at 100 yards with 140 grn factory ammo.

Ahh, now I’m tracking. I read Accurate Ordinace as Accuracy International (the chassis manufacturer). I’m shooting almost the same gun, built by Long Rifles Inc in my posts above, can’t say enough about it.

About 4 years after we'd moved into a new home, my wife found something heavy and metal on an unused top shelf in our bathroom. She called me in to get it because she couldn't reach that high.  This is what I pulled out, loaded.  After 4 years, you think you know a house... 

My dad made the holster.

Question.  I have an M&P Sport with a fixed front sight. I would like to put a scope on it.  If mounted at normal height, will the front sight be visible through the scope at every magnification?  Thinking about a 3x9.
