Re: New Marlin production at Ilion NY
The way I see it any time somebody starts making something different there is going to be some issues. As long as they are dealt with properly I don't see any problems with it.
I guess it just won't be the same with Remington making them. I have no problems with Remington at all, but it would be like buying a new Ford that was built at a Chevy assembly plant.
It could have been much worse though. Some foriegn invester could have bought the name, and moved everything to Turkey/Russia/China to make a larger profit. With the amount of money being thrown at this endever I don't think that will happen any time soon.
It will probably just start a new era. My guess is that Marlin will be around a bit longer with updated manufacturing. Could have all but went along the wayside the way Colt did.
