Well, so much for the hot rumor that Remington was going to close up shop.

A month or so back, after the word came out that Winchester was folding up shop, some people were pushing a rumor that Remington was going to sell out and close.

"After all, they never make anything really new", the line went.

Hadnt heard that one. I live about 3 miles from the factory. They were having some energy issues(steam supplier) & more & more sub contracting... But no word on shut down. -Justin

Oh dang!

www.remington.com/products/firearms/shotguns/tactical_shotguns.asp

I just started reworking another 870 and I have to see that. Man! The most interesting thing on that page was the 2 "Tactical" 1100's. 18" barrel & SpeedFeed IV stock with R3/LimbSaver pad, and it's all factory! An 18" factory barrel! I wonder if they'll sell me just the barrel... I also wonder if that is the regular or Magnum 1100...

I also thought it was interesting that they chose the 1100 for the Tactical lineup, not the 11-87. granted, I own two 870's, one 1100, and no 11-87's; there is a reason for that on both counts.

I have a Remington Competition Master I use for 3-gun but thought they dropped it from the 2005 line. Now it looks like they must have had a demand to bring it back. Nice shotgun IMHO.....Trapfan.

<SNIP> Some models come with the Knoxx SpecOps stock straight from the factory. But they don't say police on the side some my guess is that many of our members will still want the LE models. The bad news for me is that they are OD GREEN! No green guns for me! I know many here like the green but not me. The Express HD model is still offered.

Well I'm upstate NY and my friend wants to shoot my 9417 before the race starts so more later. MIKE.



The SpecOps is available on the LE side as well. Remington is also putting it on their new turkey gun and their 7615 patrol carbine.

The list of imported guns bearing the Remington name is growing


And Mile, I'd hold off on buying that bottom eject Remmie for now.
