Re: What ever happened to...
Started as Kassner in Harrisburg, many years ago. Recall their "brand" as far back as the late '60s and early '70s.
Primarily importers of foreign-made sporting gear (scopes, accessories, etc), changed to KBI years ago. Gone now. They had bought the Charles Daly name, all of that stuff was imported. Zastava rifle actions/complete rifles. Most of their shotguns were imported from Turkey, perhaps some from Russia?
Remington "taking over" the Zastava imports and third world shotguns, more or less put the whammy on KBI, from what I have been told? Was at their office once (Linglestown Rd.) to haggle over some donations to our FNRA committee. They were good to us back then.
