Just got word of this today. I'm gonna miss their great customer service. Sad to hear another American Company being closed down and the factory workers losing their jobs as a result. Never good news to get during the Holidaze.

BUSHMASTER'S MAINE FACTORY TO CLOSE . . . Freedom Group Inc. announced Friday that it will close its Bushmaster Firearms International manufacturing facility in Windham, Maine, effective March 31. The factory employs 73 people, according to a Morning Sentinel news story. In a press release, Freedom Group stated the Bushmaster brand and products remain key strategic assets within its portfolio. The manufacturing of all Bushmaster products currently produced at Windham will be relocated to other Freedom Group facilities. The move will have no impact on customers or the existing supply base, said Freedom Group, and all affected employees will be offered a comprehensive severance package and outplacement services.

not sure yet if tis means they're relocating, or closing their doors permantly.

from what i read earlier, it sounded like they may be relocating because they couldn't expand their test firing range due to noise complaints from neighbors.

Say what!!

Bushmaster just started production of the Bushmaster ACR – the Magpul design that was the topic of another thread on this forum (endless ya-de-ya) and everyone and their brothers waited years to purchase!

Well, there goes the Bushmaster ACR!

They are not going out of business just moving.

Remember it is the same company that owns Remington and they just did the same thing with Marlin.
