Was a nice article about the Freedom Group producing new marlin lever guns at the Remington plant in Ilion NY. There was a $6 million renovation of unused space in the existing plant in NY, helped along with $2.35 million in state funds. They have hired a additional 100 workers (they had already been hiring because of upgrades they were doing to military sniper rifles under Federal contract. It has been a good year for Remington, except for the flap about the model 700's. The news article only mentioned lever guns. Don't know if that means that their bolt guns would be made elsewhere, the line dropped or if the media just screwed it up. The article was in the Utica Observer Dispatch. I checked and they did not/or havent's yet posted it on line. Hope they keep producing the .35 Remington.
