Re: Remington model seven stainless
I think that some of the forum members are confused.
Remington is not Ford motor company. Maybe a little bit like General Motors.
Remington failed, was sold and was rebranded by a new company a number of years ago. The production line was moved to the south where labor costs are cheaper and the new owners owns the patent rights to the newer model Remington firearms.
Much the same as Winchester, that now only makes a couple of models of Winchester rifles or shotguns and mostly just makes special order rifles that are more profitable to produce, OLIN not owning Winchester for at least 35 years.
Anything produced today is not going to be produced exactly the same way it was 40 - 30 years ago...
In some ways it is better, since tooling and machining today can be done right down to a couple of microns, but is also cheaper because the CNC machine does most of the work.
But the older rifles used a much more expensive method of impressing or cutting the rifling in the barrel then the button rifling used today in most production barrels.
