    Hope they dont have to return any. Remington customer service is the worst in the biz, they dont even service their own guns anymore.

    I have dealt with them three times for a lemon 870 I bought a few years ago. There will not be a 4th time.

    Well with .gov inspectors crawling up their ass, they'll be forced to produce a quality product.


    Somehow that doesn't really impress me, and I won't be in the market for a Remington AR any time soon.

    I had a sneaking suspicion the their was a deeper reason the Colt was expressing an interest in producing their older firearms again....like staying in business after the war winds down.

    It's probably too early to say anything, but after my quite limited, yet rather scary experience with three Remington's products it doesn't sound like a good news.

    A lemon 870? That's a rarity, even so, sucks they wouldn't honor their warranties

    Chrysler and GMAC come to mind. Now lets see what happens to Bushmaster and DPMS civilian products.

    Cerberus totally screwed GMAC & GMAC Mortgage.... Chrysler too. Put all the debt on the books, pillaged the company's assets, HUGE cuts for the employees and the end result was crappy products & service for the customers.

    Cerberus already destroyed bushmaster yanked it out of state and laid everybody off, formr ceo reopened as windham weaponry though and they make a nice gun. Hired back half the original workforce too.
