    What is the history of the 90T and Kolar? How did this arrangement come about?Why did it end? Is the 90T every bit the quality of a current Kolar. Thank you for the information. BB

    The 90-t was made for Remington by Kolar. I believe Kolar up until this point made sub-gauge tube sets and choke tubes. This would have been their break into the fireams manufacturing arena. Yes it is a very good quality gun. It failed because no to many people wanted to spend $3000.00 on a Remington as it did not have a proven track record like the P and K guns in the same price range.

    When Remington discontinued the 90-T they were sold for about 1/2 the MSRP. This also made people how paid full price alittle made, but what can you do. Up unitl about 2 years ago 90-T were bringing anywhere from $1100.00 - $2200.00 depending in if it was a high or low rib. Now they are starting to get more expensive starting at about $1800.00 and goung to around $2900.00.

    I am glad I got mine in October 2000 for $1050.00.

    When they were discontinued, Jaqua's(as usual) bought the remainder for el chepo, and sold them as low as $1575.

    I know of 3 guys that drove there from Wiosconsin to buy them.

    Built like a tank, choked for smoke. One of the original complaints was about the method of stock attachment, which was like a pump or auto rather than inlet (more expensive) like most box locks.

    They like it now.

    Nothing wrong with casting - as long as it is done RIGHT

    Ruger has been casting all their guns since day one and they make some of the strongest, most respected handguns and rifles ever.

    There are loads in old DuPont (IMR) manuals for .44 Magnum that are segragated for "RUGER BLACK HAWK" only that are much stiffer than what they recommend for a Smith '29

    Ruger has been making safari grade magnum caliber rifles in .416 Rigby; .375 H&H .338 Win Mag, etc. and just came out with .375 Ruger

    Ruger's famous .22 Mark -I has been known to exceed ONE MILLION rounds

    Springfield Armory has been casting M-1A receivers since 1974 when they started in Devine, TX and now in IL, and some of those receivers are on their second or THIRD REBUILD with new barrels and bolts and gas systems.

    I don't think it was casting that was the failure of the 90-T - It just didn't look as good with the non-aesthetically pleasing receiver to stock appearance - very "H&R Topperish" (BTW: The H&R Topper - is one of the STRONGEST actions in existence) Labs have tried blowing them up to no avail and I believe there were some posts here about that, what? A year ago?

    A pair of buddies were getting a tune up and one of the managers gave us tour and essentially said many of the things that Wild Turkey said, plus if I recall there was a changeover in management at Remington.

    With the change in leadership, Remington pulled the plug - but that gun is as true a Kolar today as there other guns are - built like brick $hithouse!

    I haven't ever visited a manufacturer other than Kolar, but nice operation!
