Just saw this on CNN
You better grab up those model 70s leftover
That's a crying shame that they are closing production but this has been the trends thruout ALL gun mfgs, declining sales, more fruitless lawsuits, higher wages, and material cost.
I wondering who would be next, maybe browning? ;g
Their featherlite m70 (in my opinion) is the nicest production bolt rifle on the market. I wonder though, will they still make the WSM and WSSM ammo? It's pretty annoying when a company changes the ammo market and then runs.
Yep, they are moving production of "high line" guns overseas, whatever that means.
That is OK, Savage has had my business for a few years now anyway.
The loss of another great AMERICAN company like Winchester is just another step in America losing its world dominance in anything but consumerism.
What Savages do you own? I have a model 99 in 300 savage that's been passed down through 4 generations of my family. There is no more beautiful lever action made than the old model 99's!;f
Will there still be winchester white box ammo? that would suck to lose a nice cheap practice ammo
Winchester ammo is made by Olin.
Olin sold the Winchester Rifle plant and the license to use the Winchester name to FN. Olin will still make Wincester ammo to the best of my knowledge.
I heard recently that Remington is/has moved a lot of manufacturing overseas? I have no confirmation.
I live near the Ilion NY plant (about 20 miles or so) and this past year they had sued the steam supplier (main source of thier energy) to keep supplying them with steam. I believe it is still in court. But they are still here for the mean time....
