I used to love Remington firearms. I have 14 rifles and shotguns made by Remington. The last Rem. rifle I bought was in 2012 for my son. A 3006 adl. Remingtons quality has been dropping even before 2012. All these gun manufacturers want to produce a cheaper product and sales begin to suffer. You can still find those bdl's and adl's out there, if you look hard enough. But there is a lot of junk too.
