      Where is their answer to the RPR or other factory, chassis based precision rifles that are flying off the shelves? Do they even make the 700P anymore? Why hasn't someone taken that barreled action, gone to some midtier designer and said make us a chassis system that takes AR and AICS mags and lets crank this puppy out for 1300 max street?

      Why is the R-15 base rifle made with Magpul Moe furniture 1200 freaking bucks MSRP!? AND WHY THE FUCK ARE YOU SHIPPING ME A 5 ROUND FUCKING MAG WITH IT. JUST 1!!! If you want a grand or 1100 on the street, ill take the 5rder if youre gearing this as a hunting ar, that's fine. But gimme a 30rder too at least Christ almighty...!!!

      Why in the world of Youtube videos full of 3gun semiauto shotguns there isn't a Remington 1100 factory made with this type of shooting in mind???

      They seem to be this company who is so focused on hunters they fail to understand something... HUNTER SPECIFIC SHOOTERS DON'T MOVE YOUR SALES ANYMORE. The guy using his monte carlo R700 who shoots 100 rds a year doesn't keep you afloat anymore in the world where every major company has their "side hustle" lines to attract new customers or get existing customers to stay in their brand. There is a whole world of AR saturation and people can still make some badass new shit that makes them their own little slice. They have an Illion factory. If tomorrow they released compliant ARs and accessories, they could bury the market full of these mom and pop shops who take 9 months to manufacturer 6oz of plastic into a speedloader or a maglock button.

      And finally, what's with the shitty shit you keep putting out? If you're gonna ignore huge pieces of the total gun market, at least do the things you do extremely well...

      When a Remington somebody-mucky-muck can answer my questions and concerns with real answers or products, then the company will be solvent. Not a single minute before.

        Agreed on at least for the pistol ammo. Ive tried on more than one occasion their green box against Blazer or even Winchester white box. Groupings are all over the place compared to the other two.

          Remington Ammo is made in Lonoke Arkansas, not in Ilion, has been since they closed their Connecticut Plant. Their AR's and handguns are made in Alabama in their new plant. They are slowly moving production to Alabama. In a few years the Ilion plant will be a museum.

            What an odd situation and tough time for the gun industry; we elect a (possibly) pro-2A President and gun sales go way down, despite a decent economy, but under a very anti-gun Pres. Obama and the threat of a 'President H. Clinton', sales boomed. I understand the reasons why, it's just sometimes it's a double-edge sword whichever way the elections go.
